Tips for Creating a Stylish Home Office

A Stylish and Functional Home Office

With more people than ever working from home, many are wanting to create a workspace that boosts creativity and productivity without sacrificing style. But creating an inviting and functional home office need not be a daunting task, says Sharon Grech, Benjamin Moore color and design expert. She offers the following tips:

  • Stay colorful from nine to five. Bold, dark colors work well in an office environment, provided the room is well lit with overhead and task lighting. A color like Knoxville Gray HC-160 in an eggshell finish will add bold dimension to a space and help channel creative energy.
  • Get inspired with accessories. Favorite decorative pieces, pictures or motivational typography art help create a space that is inspirational, happy, and buzzes with positive energy.
  • Rest comfortably. The most important feature in any home office is the chair. When selecting it, remember that comfort is essential because it will help keep you focused. To further boost productivity and your overall mood, position it near a window to take advantage of natural light.
