Working from home has become the norm in 2020 and it’s important to decorate it in a way that motivates you. Depending on the vibe you wish to go for in your home office, Dulux’s Colour of the Year ‘Brave Ground’ could act as the perfect backdrop to let your interior style shine through – we spoke to the team about some inspirational colour pairings.
Be inspired by Dulux’s ‘Expressive Palette’ which boasts reds and pinks balanced with soft neutrals. ‘Brave Ground’ is a warm beige that is bang on trend for 2020 and can easily be amped up by combining it with more of a bold and aggressive shade. A bright red or pink would work well for a statement home office and one that wants to encourage productivity.
Back to nature
Bring an element of nature into your home office to make you feel calm and grounded. Echoing the tones of the sea, sky and soil – earth shades provide a connection to the natural world and blends the boundaries of indoor/outdoors. Don’t forget to incorporate real nature into your home office through plants and flowers that will instantly freshen up the space.
Minimal & uplifting
Pair Brave Ground with a complementary pastel shades such as light pinks and yellows. These soft and muted tones create a naturally relaxing space and will encourage you to let go of any stress of pressure. Energising without being overpowering, they bring positivity to balance a home office space.
Create a sense of harmony in your home office and be inspired by Dulux’s Trust Palette, which consists of unifying earth shades such as brown, beige and off-white. This colour palette lends itself to more traditional-style furniture and accessories that are made out of solid wood, which will marry old with new.
