Office is where we spend our time; for a moment hours that are spent are more than at home. Your surroundings affect your mood and choosing the right color; colours that are non-stimulating will help you in encouraging your mood and work in those stressful moments.

Orange colour energizes and brings to mind excitement, creativity and happiness. You can take advantage of this colour and it would be valuable to those who need to stay peppy and energetic throughout the day. Orange vitalizes, inspires and creates enthusiasm.

Even a lackluster color like Grey is great choice for your office space, it can be co-ordinated with colours like brown, black and white easily. It can also be coordinated with accessories of brighter shades, and it would not trigger any strong emotions as it doesn't attract attention, allowing the other colours to take prominence. So you can cleverly use grey color and use other dazzling shades of colour to co-ordinate it.

To stay composed, a pale blue color would help to stay attentive and helpful for longer duration. If you have dark blue décor you can decorate your space easily with accessorizes in colours like navy blue frames, vase or small teddies or cartoon characters you like. The colour blue indicates responsibility and reliability. It reduces tension and fear.
