Studies consistently show that art affects mood. So when setting up your home office, consider the energy you need to streamline your workflow and make the most of the space where you might be spending the majority of your waking hours. We all know that work can be stressful and that art with clear compositions – such as Paul Browns geometric photographs Jiro Ishiharas breezy cloudscapes – can be the perfect antidote to a hectic day. If you are looking for representation and inspiration, figurative works such as Lisa Krannichfelds Strong female characters dressed in suits can be both fun and motivating. In general, opt for cool colors and muted compositions for a calming effect, and bright, warm colors in spring to boost energy and creativity.
The key to curating art for a home office is choosing art that makes the space your own while also being suitable for Zoom calls and aesthetically pleasing. Think about what will be seen during your video conferences and hang a central piece as a background – abstract paintings, landscape photography, botanical scenes and minimalist designs are ideal for this function. Keep an eye on the fun, inspirational, and highly personalized artworks to lift your spirits throughout the day. Text-based art, pop art, and figurative art are good places to start in your search for workplace art that is unique to you.
