So often, when we think about trends in office decorating, we think only of that stunning corner office, like the one above in a Sydney workplace decorated by Courtney & Wise. The corner office should look great, no question, but brightening up one office won't get as much effect as creating a cohesive decorating scheme for the entire workplace.
The corner office above uses red-orange, deep blue, and bright white along with leafy green plants inside and out to make a lively yet calm space.
The large, shared workrooms have cubicles in chrome and biscuit shades, lots of pipes and other industrial elements, and a fair amount of unavoidable clutter, with boxes and products and machinery about. Carrying the peaceful blue and the plants into these spaces makes them more attractive, happier places to work.
Suede finish paint on the dividing wall partitions gives a softer look.
This wall carves out a semi-private workspace. This can be a great way to mark off a reception area. The colour draws attention and encourages visitors to stop here with their questions.
This wall provides some colour for a busy shared space. Clear panels keep the space light and airy and encourage collaboration among the workers, while still helping to keep noise down and giving each worker a sense of personal space. The bright white of the workstations contrasts with the brilliant blue.
Investing in a few touches of colour and texture throughout your entire workplace pays off in higher productivity and a greater sense of well-being.
