What are the Popular Bay Area Colors for Home Office in 2013?

It’s not unusual to hear people complain that they can’t get any work done at home. It’s not surprising. There are several factors that affect our ability to be productive at home. It’s not easy to separate business and home life. An open window beckons us to cut the grass. A squeaky washer or dryer reminds us to contact that mechanic. The stack of letters on the coffee table demands that we open them and respond. There is also the distraction of family and pets. Let’s face it: these are distractions that we can’t control. One thing we can control is the paint on the wall—which leads to our present question: What are the popular bay area colors for home office in 2013?


Choosing a Paint Color that Inspires Your Work

It’s true. The color of the paint on your wall can actually affect your productivity. After you've decided on the type of paint you want to use, it’s important that you choose a color theme for your office that generates a vibrant and energetic mood and strengthens your capacity to focus and get your tasks done. There’s no right or wrong colors, but there are colors that will accord better with your personality. So after you've asked yourself, “What are the popular bay area colors for home office in 2013?”, you might consider asking a more practical question like, “What are the colors that will optimize my ability to work in 2013?” Knowledge of the way color influences us is the key to helping us make an informed decision. So let’s take a quick look at some basic colors and how they might interact with you and your home work space:

Red

Red has been shown to increase blood pressure and speed up heart rates! It’s not all bad. Red is a color that excites! If you find yourself feeling a bit lethargic when you sit down in your home office, you might consider adding red accents in the room. Too much of it might not be so healthy, but in small doses it can stimulate conversation and collaboration. A dash of red might be just right for somebody who needs a bit more than what the coffee machine is offering.

Yellow

Yellow is an uplifting color. Many color therapists actually use this color to treat patients suffering from depression. Yellow is also known to focus the mind and improve judgment. If you’re an administrator or in charge of making hard decisions that will significantly affect those working under you, yellow might be a great addition to your home office.

Blue

Blue can stimulate feelings of calm and repose. Those with high stress and overwhelming amounts of work to do might consider blue to balance an atmosphere otherwise marked by urgency and high pressure.

Orange

Orange is great for creative types. Designers, writers, and other creative professionals do well to surround themselves by orange. It’s also been shown to evoke enthusiasm and energy.

Green

Green has a calming effect, and it has also been demonstrated to enhance our reading comprehension levels. If your work requires you to focus and consume and digest huge amounts of information, green might be a good choice for you.

Brown

Brown presents a soothing atmosphere. It also suggests professionalism, credibility, and formality. If you think the vibe in your office could use a little more gravity, try adding some brown.

Choosing the proper paint color for your office is an excellent way to enhance the functionality and quality of your workspace. If you need further counsel or help with your painting project please don’t hesitate to call MB Jessee!

Customer Reviews

“Richard and crew have been great, for sure. As much as I look forward to having the job done and my house back in order, I really enjoyed having them around. You should feel really good about how they represent your company.”

— Jessica Dodson

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”

“Matt, Julie & Ricardo, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the three of you for the wonderful job you did in hosting the SFBA NARI Chapter Meeting on Wednesday evening. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Members and guests alike walked away with a truly positive experience. The "painter for a day" and the cookies in the paint cans were an absolute brilliant touch and received rave reviews. What a wonderful way to do such positive marketing. Thanks again for a truly memorable experience for our members and guests. You are valued as a NARI member.”

— Judy Tufo, SFBA NARI Executive Director

“The painters at MB Jesse are top notch! Cesar's team was super friendly and helpful. They were very polite and accommodating. Their expertise in everything painting related was evident in their attention to detail and efficiency painting tricky spaces. The apartment looks brand new!”

— Adam Swisher

“Just wanted to let you know that the crew was great to have around the house for the past two weeks. All three of them were professional, courteous, and attentive to my thoughts/concerns and were extremely knowledgeable. They paid great attention to the detail and it shows.”

— Mark & Roberta Gross

“Edy and crew are hard at work. They are doing a great job. Very professional outfit you have. Your crew is a delight. You may use me for a reference!”

“Just had MB Jessee paint the interior of our house and they did a wonderful job. They tackled some crazy wallpaper as well as painted some very high ceilings and walls. The whole process was quick and they did a great job! We are very pleased. I was also very impressed by the crew. They were very personable, kind and actually took pride in the work they were doing. In one of our conversations with the lead Ricardo, he actually told me he was very proud of how the rooms had turned out. I agree sir! It turned out great and it's not often you hear someone thinking of your home like they would theirs, and putting that level of work and quality into it. That made a huge difference in how I viewed this company. Ricardo, you were fantastic and thank you for the great job, we will be using you again.”

“The finish on my kitchen cabinets had failed, becoming tacky and grimy around the handles. M B Jessee gave me a reasonable quote, far below some others, and did an outstanding job, striping the original varnish and refinishing with a new lacquer finish. The cabinets look like new. Work was done 1 day faster than estimated. The crew was extremely hard-working, considerate, and neat. Highly recommend M B Jessee.”

“Charles finished yesterday and did a fantastic job. We really enjoyed meeting Charles and having him in our home. He is a great guy in addition to his attention to detail in his work, the protection of our floors, walls and furnishings, and his overall interaction with us both. I would be pleased to recommend him to any of my clients.”

“I cannot imagine finer painters--and I have worked with many. They work exceptionally hard. It is a joy to see their workmanship!”

— Alicia R.

“The entire MB Jessee team is courteous, efficient and professional. From scheduling and estimating to the crew managers and crew, they all did an excellent job on a small (but complicated) two room project in my house. I'm already thinking about getting them scheduled for the next project in the spring.”

— Cari Cheney

“I just wanted to send you an email to say that John did such a great job over here today. He is truly a hard worker. He has the perfect balance of friendliness, honesty, and professionalism. I trust him. He takes the time to do the job to the best of his ability and that is what sets him (and your company) apart from the competition. He didn't make me feel rushed. He really made me feel like our job was the most important thing in the world. Thanks again!”
