Not only will this brighten up the space and make it more pleasant to work in, but it can also help you stay focused and motivated. Here are some tips for choosing the best art prints for your home office or workspace.
Colour for your home office
It's important to consider the psychology of colour when it comes to office decor and designing and decorating a home office with art. Colour stimulates creativity. Blue is associated with peace and tranquillity, so if you're looking for an office that will help you focus on your work, blue tones might be just what you need. Red has been shown to stimulate creativity and productivity in both children and adults, which makes it a good choice for brainstorming sessions or any time when you want to get creative.

Once you've found a style and artist that you like, make sure to choose an art print that matches your personality and style. If you prefer modern decor, you probably don't want to hang an old-world print above your desk.

If you are hanging your art print opposite a window be aware there might be reflections and also consider buying a few art prints to hang together as well as a feature print.
