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

“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

“I loved working with M.B. Jessee from start to finish on a relatively small paint job that grew a bit. I felt in very good hands from the moment Matt Jessee came out to give me the estimate and talk about my job. He was very easy to talk to and he handled my changes very well. Then the actual work done by Rigoberto and Mario was impeccable. They were neat and meticulous and the paint job looks beautiful. I could not have asked for more and when I did, they accommodated me 100%. I will not hesitate to call M.B. Jessee again and to refer them to friends.”

— Nancy Kurkjian

“Everyone I dealt with was nice, helpful, and very professional. The price was reasonable! (I didn't feel like I was getting the "San Francisco price." The attention to detail and work quality was excellent. They did what they said they would do in the exact timeframe they said they would do. Highly recommend!”

— Tim Tyson

“Today I received a beautiful bouquet from your company. It was totally unexpected and very much appreciated--a lovely surprise. Also today, your crew finished my job. I am so pleased with all their fine work. Richard is absolutely amazing and a total delight to work with. He was also extremely helpful during the paint color process. The interior work in my home far exceeded my expectations. A big thank you to you and the crew for an outstanding job. Thank you, thank you for a terrific job!”

— Barbara

“The people at M.B. Jessee are great – from the painters to the office staff to Matt. Talk about leadership from the top.”

— Kevin Ames, Mark Becker Homes

“MB Jessee just finished our exterior and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The foreman (Pedro) and lead painter (Ricardo) were incredible to work with: they communicated scheduling clearly, Ricardo was a joy to be around every day, the showed up early every day, were incredibly tidy and did great paint work. The final walkthrough experience was incredible. Pedro pointed out items I missed demonstrating a clear desire to complete another quality project. I highly recommend them. As others have noted they definitely aren't the cheapest but you quickly realize that you're getting what you pay for. The 3-year guarantee is also a nice touch since there are likely touch-up items that will show up after the job is done.”

— Joshua J.

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

— Alicia R.

“I had my wooden kitchen cabinets painted white. Anabal and Danielle were doing the job. I have nothing but praise for them. They came on time, cleaned up every day, were respective, friendly and helpful. If the rest of Jessee's crew are as great as Anabal and Danielle, this company will go far.”

— Anni S.

“I just wanted to thank you all for doing such a phenomenal job on our recent house painting. We are very happy with the outcome and can't say enough good things about the crew. Everyone working on the project was outstanding and made it a great experience. Thanks to everyone.”

— Daylan

“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

“Awesome work by highly experienced, professional painters. They were: Conscious about the amount of time it would take. Ours had a lot of pre-work and took 3 weeks. Accommodating when we added a few last-minute changes Understanding when a heatwave hit and we remove some of the plastic sheeting over windows, which they had to put back up the next day. Accessible, especially the on-site crew (Hi Jose & Victor!) -- always answering questions and checking in. The end result is a perfect paint job that makes our 94-year-old house look brand new. I would definitely hire MBJ again”
