Still working from home, Hudson Valley? Whether your job has shifted to a part-time work-from-home program or you’re logging in remotely every day of the workweek, it’s more important than ever to have a home office space that’s positive and welcoming. For a nearly instant fix, consider sprucing up your office with a bright and cheery coat of paint. The pros at Williams Lumber & Home Centers, which carries the largest selection of Benjamin Moore paint colors in the Hudson Valley, offer advice on how to upgrade your home office with a new hue this fall.
If you love a good neutral, you can’t go wrong with a natural, calming shade for your office. Choose a color that’s easy on the eyes, such as Benjamin Moore’s Thunder AF-685, Collingwood OC-28, or Simply White OC-117. Once the walls are primed and painted, inject a few simple pops of color into the room via accessories and artwork.
You may want your office to be simple and streamlined, but that doesn’t mean you have to shy away from color! Instead, stick to hues that align with a neutral color scheme but offer more intensity. For this, muted versions of classic colors work well. Consider paint shades from Benjamin Moore’s Historical or Affinity Color Collections for options that are lower chroma and always elegant.
Do the natural panoramas of the Hudson Valley steal your heart? Take inspiration from the region’s natural surroundings and look for paint colors to match. Soft greens are ideal for the home office, since they soothe the eye and promote productivity. A few top picks from Benjamin Moore include Louisburg Green HC-113, Flora AF-470, and Wind Chime AF-465.
Want to see what the hues would look like in your room? Use Benjamin Moore’s Color Portfolio® app to apply paint colors to your room, match hues with Benjamin Moore colors, and more.
While variations on neutrals may be an easy, breezy solution for many home offices, there’s something to be said for incorporating a pop of color into the room. To do it right without going overboard, keep placement in mind. A statement wall or even the ceiling could be good locations to inject a jolt of color into the room without distracting you from the job at hand. Of course, if you’re not ready to charge full steam ahead into Benjamin Moore’s vast color selection, start small with vibrant accessories and wall art.
