The Benefits of Brightening Up your Office with Art

Whether you’re continuing to work from home or are back in the office, it’s important that you have a positive space to work in to keep you feeling happy and motivated.

Office art can be the perfect addition to your space, brightening up your walls and nurturing inspiration and positive mental wellbeing from within.

If you’re looking to spruce up your home office or personalise your workstation at your office, here are all the benefits of office art.

What are the mental health benefits of bright wall art?

As we know, colours play a huge role in evoking certain emotions, meaning that the brighter the colour, the brighter our moods!

Referencing colour therapy, a practice that involves the use of certain colours to treat both physical and mental health, the introduction of bright or colourful art in your office can have subtle changes to both your mood and psychology.

For example, the below colours can be used to have a variety of effects:

  • Blue – provides a sense of security and can promote productivity
  • Orange and yellow – can be used to promote optimism and energy
  • Green – nurturing feelings of harmony and encouraging decisiveness
  • Purple – great for encouraging problem solving and creativity

If you’re wanting to create a certain vibe for your office, you should look into how you can use colours to create the ideal working environment that’s customised to you and your mental wellbeing.

Home office wall art ideas

If you’re still working from home and you want to introduce some office art, but aren’t quite sure where to begin, we can help you get started with some inspiration.

Of course, everyone has their own personal preferences, but we feel these particular pieces would make the perfect additions and brighten up your space!

Introducing greenery into the home is a huge trend for 2022, and you can use this as inspiration for your office art, too!

For example, the “Leaves” print by 83 Oranges is a perfect reflection of the greenery indoors trend, and with the blush pink background complementing the emerald of the leaves, you can also start playing with the green and pink colour trend which is reportedly huge for interior design this spring and summer.

We think this print is perfectly suited to an office environment, giving a sense of fun and professionalism in one print!

If you want to experiment with some brighter colours and transform your office into a motivational, inspirational and positive environment, then you can’t go wrong with the “Happy Place” print by HolieGraphik.

The sunburst pop of yellow, to us, is like a perfect resemblance of the sun, giving off instantly uplifting and positive vibes.

The graphic text in a bold shade of pink with a warm orange shadowing behind the letters creates a bright and colourful piece of art that would elevate the interior space of any office.

If you’re someone that loves a graphic print and a positive quote, then this piece definitely deserves pride of place in your office, and we’re sure you’ll love the benefits it brings both to your office and your mood as you work.

If you’re in need of some optimism, energy, and productivity in your workspace, then “Yellow Lemon” by Rosi Feist could be just the piece of office art for you.

As we’ve discussed, these colours can work together to create a really positive environment for you. With the addition of the clean lines of the background and the soft edges of the lemon in the centre of the piece, we feel this print embodies both structure and flow, which is ideal for an office.

Also, with summer right around the corner, the lemon graphic is perfect for the season as citrus fruits are commonly associated with the summertime for their zesty and refreshing vibes.

Neutral art for your office

Don’t worry if you’re someone who’s a fan of simple modern art or minimalistic vibes - more neutral tones can also make for the perfect pieces of office art.

Many people often associate the idea of neutral with boring and uninspiring, but we beg to differ!

When done right, neutral wall art can brighten up an office in its own way, providing a sense of style and sophistication with cool and calming shades.

Neutral office art can also be great if you’re working in a shared space, as they aren’t too overwhelming and can hopefully suit everyone’s tastes to make for a really great collaborative environment.

For example, “Pinpoint” by Anna Johansson is the perfect blend of neutral tones, swirling together in an intriguing and abstract piece that gets your mind thinking.

The flashes of the clean and bright white against the beige background creates art that evokes both freshness and relaxation, so you can look at this piece on one of those more stressful days to get some much-welcomed clarity.

And with abstract art being proven to influence creativity in our brains, this piece could have quite the positive effect on your office.
