Your home office might be part of an existing room or a separate room on its own – this will determine the color on the walls. The color palette for this office space is monochromatic so anything in white, grey, or black is a perfect match.
You can continue with your existing color palette of freshening up the look with soft and bright hues. You want to create a sense of calm in this room so keep the color neutral. But can accessorize with pops of color.
To keep this space minimalistic, accessorize with useful objects like storage space or organizational pieces. You can keep your desk clutter-free by keeping stationery in separate containers. Keeping papers in order can be a challenge, but with a timeless letter tray, you can gather all papers in one place.
Your workspace is an area in the house where you should be able to get your work done. Whether your job requires focusing, read, write, or draw, it is important to not get distracted by elements within the room. There are easy ways to optimize this space so that you don’t get easily distracted.
If you want to store pens, you simply take one piece away and re-stack your storage! Cables and wires are not visually appealing so try to keep cables neat and hidden away if possible. Labeling your filing and storage boxes will help you to keep organized and find things more easily.
If you are working in a room with lots of natural light, you might not need a desk lamp. Plenty of natural light creates a calming mood so try to position your work desk near a window. If, however, you are writing / reading /drawing you might want to consider an additional focused light. A lamp with an adjustable head will be an ideal accessory. Alternatively, you can get a floor lamp but this will fill up additional space. A small desk lamp will not only lighten up your work area but can also be styled as a modern accessory.
An easy way to introduce a bit of green in your office space is to have plants in your office. Plants can be placed on your desk, the floor, near the window, or hanging from the ceiling or wall. It is true that plants can bring a sense of tranquillity, so don’t be afraid to add some greens to your office. How you accessorize your work office is up to you, but do not over-accessorize if you want to keep the space calm and tranquil. Too many accessories will distract you from work!
Last but not least, consider how you decorate your walls in your work space. You can have artworks that complement the colour palette or have an artwork with a pop of colour. Digital prints, photographs or clocks are all great wall décor elements.
