Colours affect your thoughts, emotions and behaviour. By making smart use of this in your home office, you can make colours work for you and encourage desired behaviour.


Green is a natural, calming colour, which contributes to greater harmony. Green helps you find balance within yourself and has a naturally refreshing and stress-relieving effect.  

A green home office can be a perfect match if your work requires a lot of concentration and focus, you are looking for more balance and equilibrium, or you thrive best in a calm, harmonious environment. Green can be a less good match for people who need a lot of stimuli and for those who perform best under high pressure. 

Not sure if a green home office will help you get the most out of your career? These tips will help you decide on the right colour for your home office.

To give your career an extra boost, plants should not be missing from your plan. Plants have a proven positive effect on your well-being and productivity. They improve air quality, reduce stress, promote creativity and dampen environmental noise.  

Are you getting started on a green home office? Then add some green colleagues! In our example, we used bromeliad, phalaenopsis, Plumbago, ice flower, Philodendron and Alocasia. Can't resist adding some more colour to your workplace? Plants with shades of yellow and purple match perfectly with all shades of green and provide extra cheerful energy.
