As an Interior Designer, I am called on to personalize home offices for my clients. My process beings by understanding the client’s needs and preferences for organization and colorization. One way I recommend creating an organized space is to make the office furniture, paper storage and shelving all white. This creates a modern, clean space for which to add to and allows for changes later in personal styles.
For example, my current client needs an organization ‘paradise’, so I designed all storage to be white, with paper trays and new desk. I created a custom floor-to-ceiling dry-erase white board for her to add her yearly calendar and be in full-view of her desk. Also, I made her space reflect her personality and be an ‘energizing’ work environment that inspires her throughout the work day. I selected a bold warm salmon wall color to offset against the white furniture and a pattered accent chair for long conference calls. It was also important for this client to add elements of feng shui to her space, so we added a ‘money tree’ to her ‘money corner’ and a gold desk lamp to’ draw energy’ to that spot.
