Color Crazy

Happy Friday everyone!

Today's Trend is COLOR!

Whether it's your company's brand or you want to add some spice to a space, choosing a color is energizing!  You can add a burst of color in many different ways - furniture, finishes, materials, walls, the list goes on. 

Studies recognize that colors bring about emotional reactions to individuals.  According to the Global Healing Center (, colors that are useful in the office are: orange – stimulates creativity; yellow – intensifies the intellect and heightens motivation; red – energizes; blue – calming, fights physical and mental tension; green – fights irritability and has a healing effect on the body. For the office, use colors that you are drawn to as these are the colors that will benefit your health.

Adding a WOW color factor can be a simple accent piece or loud and bright.  Here are some examples of how to incorporate color into an office space.
