Since the lockdown, more people are working from home. Setting up your new home office is essential for your quality of work and your work surroundings can help or hinder your output. Take a look at these few ideas that will help brighten up your new home-office and turn it into an enjoyable space to work in.
SEARCH FOR IDEAS
With the newfangled invention of the internet, we have access to an infinite amount of design concepts and inspiration with just the touch of a button. Search the social media channels, particularly Instagram and Pinterest, to get some creative ideas on how you would like to decorate your home office.
BRIGHTEN UP THE WALLS
It’s not so fun staring at a blank wall all day. Why not add a splash of colour to the walls of your new home office? Hanging some pop art to your walls is guaranteed to bring a bit of excitement to your new home office.
Joaquim Falco is a Spanish pop artist who has been exhibiting work since 1979. Falco has an impressive body of work that he has produced over the years but what’s really worth mentioning is his more recent shift in artistic style. Although his past work offered a nod towards Pop Art, it was in recent years that he has shifted his work to this style. If brilliant, bold colours are what you’re in the market for, then Falco has what you’re looking for. If you enjoy cultural references and fictional cartoon characters, they’re featured in Falco’s work.
ART FOR SOME CREATIVE INSPIRATION
A work of art in your home office can be more than just a decorative object. They can also double-up as inspiration to get your creative juices flowing. Whether you’re a photographer or an accountant, sometimes you just need to get creative with your work.
Consider adding some abstract and surrealist art to your new home office and allow yourself to become mesmerized by the shapes and colours. This would surely tap into your creativity and open your mind up to original ideas for your projects.
Alberto Reguera produces such mesmerising, abstract pieces that really capture your imagination. You can’t help but get lost in the shapes and details that evolve from the canvas. One-piece, NUBOSA MANANA, is particularly captivating. The heavy layers of dark oil paint on the canvas is really quite inspiring. Whichever angle you may look at it, you will discover a new painting.
Adding little detail to your desk is a great way to add a little interest to your workspace. Small plants, family photos and even small, framed art pieces.
Buying art doesn’t mean you have to purchase a large canvas that barely fits on your living room wall. If you would like to add a work of art to your desk, consider money art. The canvas is small – the size of a dollar bill to be exact, and the art is unique.
We know little about Moabit, but the artist has made a name for themselves through the style of currency art. What’s currency art, you ask? In brief, it’s art created on money. That’s right, the cash is the canvas and the artist paints or draws their masterpieces on it.
Moabit’s work is highly detailed and full of bright colours – his (or her) subject-of-choice tend to be famous cartoon characters like Donald Duck, but the work always carries a message. The art depicts current events and social issues.
If you’re in search of some inspiring art to add to your growing collection, UP & COMING ART has a unique selection of artwork that would be ideal for your new home office.
