A year ago, the wall decor for your office would look like this: A giant poster of your favorite artist.
A framed photo of your boss or your parents.
A handwritten note.
You name it.
A few years ago, you could even have an actual picture of your current boss or the person you’ve worked with in the past.
Now, though, you might have a different image for your workspace.
You may have your desk decorated with the name of a favorite artist or the words “Office of the Artist.”
You could have an image of your home, or your office.
And if you have an old wall hanging, you may want to consider replacing it with something else.
You can even go the more colorful route and decorate the whole room.
If you have more space than you’re comfortable with, you can create an art gallery.
And there’s nothing wrong with doing it in a beautiful way.
“We’ve heard from thousands of people who have been inspired by the idea of using art to show off their office,” says Kristin Bohn, founder of ArtWall Design and owner of Art Wall Studio in Dallas.
“That’s a great idea.
It’s a way to give the office a little bit of personality and make it a little more memorable.”
Bohn says a lot of people use a simple wallpaper as a way of showing off their room.
“It’s a good way to create a little piece of art that you can hang around your office and look at in your cubicle.”
For example, you’ve got a big black wall with a black frame with a framed picture of yourself in the center.
You’re not going to want to be able to see your face on it, so you could paint your face into the frame and then attach a white card to the black frame.
Or you could have a simple wall with an image that’s very simple to understand: a small circle with a star on it.
And then you could add some colors.
Or just a simple white background.
You could even go to an art museum and get a large wall of your own artwork that you’ll hang around.
It all depends on what you have in your workspace and what kind of art you want to display.
Bohn recommends using art from one of her art galleries, like ArtWall, or her own private collection.
“If you have a collection of your art, and you have the money to hire an artist, that’s a really good idea,” she says.
“I think there’s a lot that goes into finding the right artist and how much money to spend.”
You can hire an agency to decorates your walls, but Bohn says it’s important to choose an agency that understands the kind of work you’re doing.
“The agency you choose will be the one who will actually get your work done,” she explains.
“The more you work with an agency, the more they’ll get you to do the things you want them to do.”
You could also make your own art with a spray can.
You might have one that’s black, one that has a white background, and one that is green.
You paint it onto your wall and then you spray paint on your wall.
The result is a completely different look for your walls.
But be sure to have a professional help you with it.
“A spray can is not only really effective in creating an art effect but it’s also very easy to clean up,” says Bohn.
“You don’t have to have any experience in painting with a paintbrush.”
And, finally, you should have a creative director help you paint your wall so that it doesn’t look too generic.
“When you paint something with a white spray can, you’re actually painting your own brush strokes,” she points out.
“But you also get to have someone who’s going to come in and help you decide what the color is.
You’ll have someone with the expertise to go over the painting and figure out what color is.”
You may also want to create your own color palettes to help you keep track of the colors you’re using.
You don’t want to go out and purchase all of these different palettes and just spray paint each one on your walls in a random order.
You need to work with a professional.
