Paint it with something a little bit brighter. You can have Blue, Green, or Purple if you like. Whatever floats your boat, as they always say. Choose a color that would inspire you every time you work there.
Don’t limit yourself into just having a couple of chairs and desk in your office. Decorate it! Your decorations should be able to keep your senses alive when you work. We would suggest to get accessories that have dual or multiple purposes. With this, you are making your office beautiful, without eating too much space.
Don’t overdo it
Yes, it is your home and it is your style. But it does not mean that you can just put whatever trinkets you see on the market. Remember, it’s still an office and not your storage area. Keep things simple and organized. If you put so many things in your office, you might get distracted. You’d end up not being productive.
In a nutshell, make your office a place conducive for working and at the same time, will reflect your character.
