Home Office Inspiration

Black Accents

Black accents provide a sense of sophistication and offer a bold, modern look. Consider painting one wall black to accent the room, updating windows with black interior trim or utilizing black pieces of décor to help achieve the look.

Go Natural

Natural light helps improve productivity and can even have a positive impact on your night’s rest. Position your workspace in front of or near a window with natural linen curtains to maximize sunlight streaming in.

Utilize natural wood furniture and layer curated décor like wood bowls, light fixtures and greenery to add texture to the space and create a sense of coziness.

Nature Inspired

Apply a nature-inspired patterned wallpaper to an accent wall or in conjunction with board and batten to help connect the indoors with the out.

Bring Green Inside

Utilizing green helps promote the feeling of health, tranquility and grounds the space, making it compatible with other hues. If painting a room green is too out of the box, consider painting base cabinets with a green accent, sourcing a rug with varying green tones and bringing in potted plants as décor.
