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 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.”

“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.”

“My entire experience with MB Jesse was very professional. The crew were very friendly and super accommodating of my ridiculous schedule and geriatric pets in the house. The finished product, which was pretty much my entire house, far exceeds my expectations. Would definitely work with them again!”

— Heather Jordan

“Our paint crew did a great job and the foreman, Gersson was exceptionally great to work with. He was always available to answer questions, good at problem-solving, very patient, kind, and highly professional with great customer service. We definitely recommend this company, and Gersson and his crew.”

“M.B. Jessee painted the exterior of my Spanish house over 9 years ago, and they did such an incredible job that they are still getting referrals from me today. The paint is holding up perfectly -- there is absolutely no peeling chipping or any other deterioration. I still remember that my final walk-through list consisted of items written on one side of a 3x5 index card (and I'm REAL picky about my house!) However, when Matt and I did that walk-through over HALF the items were no longer an issue, as his team had noticed them first and they had already been resolved.”

— JoAnn Newcomb

“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.”

“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

“Thank you for the support you have given the Women's Cancer Resource Center over the past year!”

— Margo - Director Women's Cancer Resource Center

“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

“Dear Matt,You must be so proud of your men! They were fantastic to have around. Polite, courteous and hardworking. I am so pleased with the outcome of our home--in fact, I couldn't be any more pleased than I am!”

— Mrs. S
San Leandro

“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.

“In all the years I've worked with MB Jessee, I'm always so impressed by your crews. They are so respectful of everything--you never even know they're there! Except that the paint looks amazing when they're gone. We've had one showing of our home and already have an offer. I'm sure it is because the paint looks so beautiful.”
