Having a home office is  a real advantage in today’s world. It’s your own weekend work place for the last-minute work issues that seem to arise when you are trying to relax. Make your modern home office a place that is fun, as well as functional, with bright cheery colors, geometric shapes and interesting accents. This office compilation is a great place to start. If you have hardwood floors, incorporate a nice soft gray-toned area rug in the sitting area or a larger area rug to cover both the guest seating and the work area.

Each of these finishes will mesh beautifully with any neutral color, but especially with white, pale yellow, or tan. Pair up the dark finish with a hint of gray on the walls. The great thing about dark finishes is that most neutral paint colors will make the wood stand out and grab the attention of your clients.

Add some color to the office with a blend of bold primary colors or mix it up with lime green or sunshine yellow. Brightening up the office doesn’t have to be a huge paint job. Some inspirational wall art is a great place to start, with finishing touches on the little things like in-box files, pen tins and fun colored staplers. Greenery with small blooms or variegated leaves adds a splash of color while detoxifying the air you are all breathing.
