Spending most of your days in the same space, looking at the same objects and being in the same ambiance can certainly become boring after some time. For that reason, changing some things from time to time in your office can positively impact your level of productivity and mood. I found myself stuck in that rut a couple of months ago, so I decided to make some improvements in my office and make it look more visually appealing and elegant. In other words, to create a true refection of who I am – a stylish business woman. And since my busy work schedule did not allow me to redecorate my entire office, I wernt for the small, yet significant changes – decorating the walls.
Since walls can instantly transform the look of the space, the most important thing to determine was the colour. So I went online and did a thorough research on the effect that particular colours have on the mood, what do they say about a person and how they can influence productivity. After considering all the facts, I made the choice. At least I almost did. I knew what I didn’t want for sure, the only thing left to decide was which one of my absolute two favourites to go with – pink or white? Ah the sweet problems of decorating. Since both of them have a special place in my heart, I focused my attention to the influence they can have to the overall ambiance in the workspace.
White walls instantly brighten up the space and emit calming and relaxing vibes that can reduce the stress levels. White is usually associated with purity, cleanliness, positivity and can visually expand the space and make it look more open and airy. However, white is not stimulating to the senses and is not one of the colours that can help you stay motivated and productive at the office. Pink on the other hand, is considered a more stimulating colour that promotes creativity and inspires positive and happy emotions. While white represents purity, pink shades are usually associated with warmth, energy, compassion, love, and harmony and have the power to soothe negative feelings such as those of anger or resentment. Since it stimulates the senses and can inspire positive thoughts and emotions, pink is one of the colours that can certainly boost productivity in the office.
After comparing these two shades and taking into account factors such as my office furniture and the overall décor, I finally decided I wanted to go with white walls. But I played it smart this time – I didn’t give up on the charm of pink entirely. I decided to have one pink wall in the office that will break up the monotony and bring more dimension to the space. At first I wanted to use pink paint for my fancy colourful wall, but after going through the wonderful designs of pink wallpaper Australia shops offer, I figured that wallpaper is much, much better. It is easier to maintain and it comes in a variety of patterns, making it easier to spice up your dull white walls.
Pink wallpaper Australia interior designers recommend using wallpaper in offices as a more practical and long-term solution for giving your space a sophisticated and chic look. While painting the walls can often be a messy and time-consuming task and you can easily stain your floors and furniture (which is exactly what happened to me), with wallpaper you won’t face this problem. It is easy to apply and can cover any imperfections on the walls. Wallpaper is also highly resistant to wear and tear and can last you for many years to come, while paint on the other hand may crack or chip with time. Plus you’ll need to repaint your walls every year or two for a more fresh look. Think about it and play it smart.
