When looking for a creative project to revive a space in your home, try something new: introducing color and art into the home office. Often times the office isn’t the focal point of a redecorating project, but by giving it a little bit of love and imagination, it could easily become your favorite room in the house. Take a look at the spaces below {each unique in layout and decor} and discover how the introduction of a work of art in each completes and/or complements the different aesthetics.

Eve Arnold’s photograph of Mariyln Monroe augment’s this office’s contemporary aesthetic with its rich contrast with clean white mat. The right piece to enhance the drama of the room, while providing the relief and clean lines of a stark white border.

Hymns Lee’s “Stillwinds” introduces a necessary pop of color to this black and white office setting. The artist’s smooth white backdrop stands out against the space’s dark shelving, and her free-form gesture marks are the perfect spontaneity to add to the geometric and clean-lined surroundings.
