Having the benefit of working from our home offices we get the luxury of creating our ideal work environment. Let’s face it, we spend most of our time in our workspaces, so we need to enjoy it.
If you’ve ever worked outside the home in an office set up you know the lack of control you have over the environment; aesthetics, climate, noise, and the list goes on. Now, we can appreciate having full control over not only the conditions, but the aesthetic of our spaces. We “get to” beautify our spaces.

A very quick and easy way to refresh and energize your workspace, is adding art. Keep in mind when selecting art, invest in pieces you really love and bring inspiration. Your art selection will bring you joy, when looking upon it throughout the day, weeks and years.  

The art you choose will set the mood of your workspace. 

If your work is high stress choosing a calming piece creates an ambiance providing a visual retreat.  If you’re a nature lover, choose art that allows you to bring the outdoors in and create a nature inspired retreat that connects you to the natural world, while being at work. Create an energized workspace by selecting art that is bright and powerful to revitalize and stimulate.

There are several ways to bring art into your workspace. 

Want maximum impact? Invest in a large statement piece, as the focal point, the one that really wow’s you - and don’t stop there, remember to add a few smaller pieces for those small walls, desktop or bookshelf to accent and contribute to the ambiance of the workspace.

If you’re anything like me and thrive on versatility and love surrounding yourself with beauty, create a Gallery Wall. These are gaining popularity for the simple fact, you don’t have to choose a few pieces, you get to display and be inspired by multiple smaller pieces that you love.  You can start small, with 3 - 4 pieces and build it out over time. Gallery walls are perfect for the DIY-er and best part, you can swap the photos out easily to keep your space fresh and invigorating.

Don’t have 4 walls? No problem, you can still beautify your space with art. Choose a small piece. Set them on the desktop or bookshelf where ever you want to add a little pop of colourful beauty that energizes you.

Additionally, remember to bring the comforts of home into the workspace. Adding plants or fresh flowers, comfortable furniture for those off computer” activities contributing to the overall beauty and mood in the space.
Working in a beautiful space, makes it feel less like work. Providing joy, inspiring creativity, helping increase greater productivity.
