Create a calming effect in your work space with simple yet sophisticated shades of purple. Pale shades of purple like lavender, lilac, pale plum, light orchid and thistle are said to relieve tension and headaches by creating a peaceful ambience.
As well as creating a gentle, restful environment, these muted, chalky colours can also help to defuse strong natural light in south-facing rooms. Keep clutter to a minimum with plentiful storage options and choose furniture with clean, classic lines. Adding a touch of interest, such as a favourite piece of artwork or a beautiful gold plated mirror, will give you something interesting to focus on when you’re taking a break
