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

“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

“It was a great experience working with MB Jessee. The crew was careful and thorough as they painted the house, sealed stucco cracks, repaired dry-rotted wood, stained the deck, etc. Robert, Gersson, Jose, and all of the people involved in the process from the estimate to the job completion were friendly and professional.”

— Mike C.

“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

“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.

“Julie, by the way, I have never been so impressed with the service of a painting job before! It was like magical elves came and painted our walls without us having to do a thing! It looks amazing and just wanted to let you know how happy we are. Thanks”

“Julie,Just to let you know I am very appreciative of your crew catching the plumbing/mold problem. It was very astute of them. I wanted to let you know that again your crew has done excellent work here, please pass this along to Mr. Jessee. There are some bumps in the road here, but the painting and your crew has not been one of them. Their work is the only thing going right currently, and this crew is very nice and respectful. It is much appreciated. Thank you again.”

“The completed 'Client Satisfaction Survey' we sent in only modestly reflects our total satisfaction with the work. As a retired small business owner, I compliment you on setting 'best practices' that are consistently followed. Everything described in your marketing materials was a reality! The crew is a super bowl team and our neighbors commented on how quiet they were. We are very happy to be a client of MB Jessee.”

“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!”

“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
