Paint Swatches – Home Office Colours to Increase Your Productivity

Your home office needs to work as hard as you do. Your goals are to increase your productivity, and create a space that makes you happy.

Unlike the current bread making trend… think paint – the project without the calories!

Where To Start? Decide which room you want to make your office and how you will be using the space. If possible, choose a room, or a corner within a room that has good natural light. Use paint colour to designate the space for the purpose of work. Start with a neutral palette and any accent colours of infinite range can be added with art, fabrics and a rug.

How Much Paint Do I Need?

Best GraySW – 7015 Repose Gray This warm shade of gray pairs well with bright reds & oranges – to add a little energy into your space. And it’s soothing!

Best Off WhiteF&B Pointing No. 2003. If you want to keep things minimal and modern. It’s creamy enough to feel calm but bright enough to open up the space.

Best BlackSW – 6258 Tricorn Black. Perhaps not a colour you think you want, however, it’s a moody tone which allows you to shut out the rest of the world and concentrate. Great choice for a modern artsy space and goes well with other colours!

Best Neutral Combinations F&B School House White No. 291 is paired back and timeless without the cool undertones. Consider combining this with  F&B Drop Cloth No. 238, F&B Light Blue No. 22, or F&B Oval Room Blue No. 85.

Still not sure? Use one of these groupings of neutrals that complement each other and carry the same undertones.
