Colors For Your Home Office

If you’re fortunate enough to have your own workspace at home, you may be looking for color ideas to get those creative juices flowing.


The trick is to select and combine the colors that you love, even if the palette seems unusual to others.  This is your personal space and you will work best in an environment that reflects what you like.  That is especially true when it comes to colors.  Color has the power to put us in a happy, creative mood — and that can lead to more productivity.

Even if you leave the walls white {which I hope you don’t}, be sure and stock up on colorful accessories and choose an office chair in your favorite hue.

If you’ve been thinking about creating an office at home but don’t think you have the space, the good news is — you don’t need a lot of space!  Create a ‘room’ of your own by using a spare closet:

OK…maybe vivid colors aren’t your thing.  You can still create an inspiring, glam space with neutrals such as gray like my fellow-blogger Kelly from jaxdoesdesign did with her fab home office:

And don’t be afraid to use deeper colors.  This black office is very elegant, rich and powerful looking:

Not feeling courageous enough for black walls?  Try using black as an accent color to create contrast and drama:

If you’re willing to give bold color a try, then the sky’s the limit.  This is your personal space, so don’t be shy!




Some people may tell you not to use so much color in your office {or anywhere in your house} because you may “get tired of it.”  That may be the case for some, but not for true color lovers.  I used some of my favorite colors in my office a couple of years ago.  I still love it and can’t ever imagine the colors growing old on me:
