Creating an inviting home office that helps increase productivity without compromising on great style can be a daunting task. Sharon Grech, Benjamin Moore Color and Design Expert, shares tips on how to achieve the perfect balance of function and style.

1. Stay colorful from nine to five:

When choosing paint colors for a home office, Grech points out that it is important to consider the time of the day you will be spending most of your time in the space.

This will really help you choose the right color for the room. Bold, dark colors will work especially well in an office environment, provided the office is well lit with overhead as well as task lighting.

“One of my favorite, go-to colors right now is Shadow 2117-30, which is brought to life with light. This color will add dimension to the space and help to channel your creative energy.”

2. Get inspired with accessories:

Create an inspirational space that really gets your creative juices flowing. Choose a few of your favorite decorative pieces, pictures or motivational typography art to accent the space. “You want to create a work space that feels happy, peaceful and buzzes with positive energy,” says Grech. “Select items that will get you motivated and help you stay in a productive frame of mind.”

3. Rest comfortably:

One of the most important features in a home office is your chair. When selecting it, remember to choose one that provides comfort and keeps you focused — while still looking fabulous. Take advantage of natural light in the space and if possible position your desk in front of a window. “Natural light can really enhance your productivity and impact your overall mood,” says Grech.
