How to create a relaxing home workspace?
Color therapy experts say that green is one of the most relaxing colors. This color of plants calms the mind, body, and spirit. When green is combined with yellow – the color of sunshine, and lavender and lilac – the colors of flowers – this calming and joyful color palette balances the entire organism. Yellow, lavender, and lilac are very optimistic colors and great companions to the relaxing green. Blue hue brings inner peace, and in combination with green creates the harmonic analogous scheme (three colors that are situated next to each other on the color wheel such as, for example, blue, blue-green and green, or green, green-yellow and yellow, etc.).

Combining green and blue brings relaxation, which makes this colorful duo a harmonic counterbalance to the stressful lifestyle we often lead. In addition to the colors of furniture and decorative accessories, there is another effective way to bring green and blue into your home office design. Place a photo or a painting with the calming motif of forest or sea on the wall in front of the work desk (or a window/door with a garden or sea view). In other words, create a workplace with a calming view.

Complement colors with scents and design your home workspace as a wellness oasis. Put a couple of scented candles or an aroma lamp on the work desk or somewhere nearby. For example, the relaxing scents are those of lavender and chamomile, and citrus fruits are very refreshing.

How to design a dynamic and artistic home office?
Green and red are the well-known hues of love that attract and complement each other thus creating a dynamic indoor or outdoor space. Fiery red is the primary hue whose complement is the refreshing green – the secondary hue created by merging the remaining two primary colors – yellow and blue. When matched together, the cool green brings warm red into balance – by joining it with the other two primary hues of the spectrum. Red, the strongest of all colors, symbolizes passion and warmth and stimulates creativity. Her complementary partner – the harmonious and calming green represents Nature and relaxation and is a sight for sore eyes.
