After a week in the sun, I am having a hard transition back to my beige cubicle and windowless view. So I was hunting for some accessories to brighten up my workspace. Here’s what I found:

Peach workspace wall
A bright chair cushion or an accent wall in a bright color would go a long way to spicing up my work area.
Bright art and hangings
Fancy, fun hanging pieces like the paper and fabric chandeliers here would enliven a dreary corner. Colorful framed art would also help.
A colorful light fixture, rug and guest chair would definitely add a little punch.

Bookshelves and framed artwork
Framed art, large signage letters and a bookcase would be a great addition to a workspace if I had the space.
Orange accents
Colorful storage boxes are a quick way to clean up clutter and unify the space. Now, if they’d just open the Ikea in Kansas City, I’d jump all over this.

  1. I agree. No one feels creative or feels like working in a neutral atmosphere. Black and white might be chic, but it’s boring needs splashes of color.
