Create a calming effect in your home office with subtle, refined shades of purple. Light shades of purple like lavender, lilac, pale plum, light orchid and thistle are said to provide a peaceful ambience, relieve tension and alleviate migraine headaches.
As well as creating a gentle, restful environment, these soft, chalky colours can also help to reduce strong natural light in south-facing rooms. Keep the mess to a minimum with ample storage options and choose furniture with clean, classic lines. Adding a touch of interest, such as a favourite piece of artwork or a beautiful gilded mirror, will give you something interesting to focus on when you’re taking a mental break
