Get in line

A clever tip to get started is to plan your striped painting effect around an existing architectural feature in your home office – such as built-in cabinets, a fireplace or bookshelves. By playing with the lines that already exist in your home decor; you can easily create a wonderful graphic effect.

Calming colours

When it comes to choosing your Dulux colours, you’ll want to pick colours that make you feel relaxed yet creatively stimulated. Play around with colour swatches until you find a winning colour combinations, and then arrange the colours whichever way takes your fancy – there are no rules. Here, pewter, stone grey and slate grey have been extended onto the bookshelves, creating an elongated look that adds visual interest to the space.

Keep it simple

To enhance the calm, uncluttered effect, keep the furniture in your home office understated and the accessories to a minimum. For the ultimate creative home decor, surround yourself with things that inspire and motivate you – be that books, artwork or lush greenery.
