If you’re easily stressed out, muted accessories from nature will create a serene and peaceful ambiance. This office, from Dering Hall and designed by Terri Ricci Interiors, takes advantage of natural wood and white walls.
Instead of picking out bright artwork or accessories, Ashley Campbell Interior Design gave this Dering Hall office life by grouping like-colored books together and stacking them against a black backdrop. Genius
Incorporate Plenty of Storage
Keeping an office organized can be a struggle for many. Especially, if you’re someone who has a tendency to become buried under an unruly desk, so it’s crucial to incorporate plenty of storage solutions into your design. Coleccionista bookcase by Boca do Lobo is an incredible design solution for home offices, specially for those who look for storage solutions.
Choose A Neutral
One of the fundamental insights of color theory is that the colors that are chosen to decorate a space can have a strong impact on our moods. Since an office space is a place that you want to be able to stay focused, it can be useful to set big punches of color — and the emotional responses they bring — aside. Instead, focus on choosing a largely neutral color palette that will allow you to put the bulk of your attention on the task at hand.
Accent With Personal Items
As much as it’s important to be able to focus within your office, it’s also important to create a space in which you’ll be happy spending time. Don’t forget to incorporate a few decor elements and pieces of wall art that highlight your personal tastes.
Bring In The Outdoors
The presence of natural light in professional spaces has an overwhelmingly positive impact on employee productivity and morale. It only makes sense that these concepts would easily translate to the home office environment as well, so find a way to incorporate the outdoors and whenever possible, make windows an integral part of your design.
Create Focus Areas
As you envision the design for your home office, make sure to take into consideration all of the activities you’ll complete in the space. More than likely, you’ll need to incorporate a desk to use while tackling paperwork. But to complete a wide variety of tasks, separate focus areas can be useful.
In addition to your main workspace, think about incorporating an additional seating area for holding discussions or meeting with clients.
