Your eye is drawn to the color red, so in areas you want people to look. Use blue in conference rooms, or collaborative spaces to inspire productivity. Paint, furniture, #windowview to see blue sky, water displays with a tropical fish tank, or a waterfall Use yellow in moderation for an office environment. The feeling of well-being may bring comfort to some and encourage productivity, but for other anxiety could mean more sick days. Use white in small rooms & hallways for space, hospitals for image of cleanliness. Use green in various shades throughout the office. A light green for restful quiet areas. Use a medium shade in reception areas, and open work spaces where a calm energy is desired. Use brown to ground the light, airy, and spacious feeling of an open concept workspace. Consider brown laminates, wood finishes, hardwood floors, or earth-tone fabrics.
