Home Living : June 7th 2011
8 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, June 7, 2011 Colour your office mood » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING With a growing number of Australians working or studying from home -- creating a comfortable and inviting home office space is essential for maintaining a productive and positive working environment. Dulux's leading colour expert, Andrea Lucena-Orr describes how clever colour selections that complement surrounding furnishings and accessories can transform a dull and uninspiring work space into a functional and fabulous one. ''Certain colours in the home office space can have a powerful and positive effect on mood, concentration and imagination,'' Ms Lucena-Orr says. ''For example, purple hues are known to enhance lateral thinking and creativity, while various shades of blue have been known to increase conceptual thought processes. ''Green generally has a calming effect that can assist with rejuvenating and balancing the mind and body and orange stimulates communication.'' Something new which has hit the market is Design Chalkboard, a flat black acrylic that turns surfaces into an instant chalkboard, perfect for brainstorming ideas and concepts. You can create a functional and fabulous work space by painting furniture and accessories in accent colours to add interest and dimension to your home office space. Also consider clever storage solutions which maximise space. Bring the outdoors inside with fresh plants, open windows and plenty of natural light.
