If you’re thinking about giving your office a fresh update, then you’ve probably already begun looking into new designs and scrolled endlessly through Pinterest looking for office inspiration, but you may not have considered turning your attention to TV and film. Some of the most stylish and modern offices are on our screens and whilst we might not be able to have an office with three floors like Dumbledore or an amazing city backdrop like Christian Grey, we can take certain things away from these offices and incorporate them into our own. In this blog post, we’re going to look at some #OnScreenOffices and see what inspiration we can take away from them.
Choosing a colour scheme
Colour is important when it comes to your work and different colours can have different effects on your mood. Think about what you want to get out of your working day. You want to be motivated, productive, focused and invigorated. Adding a splash of blue to the office can help create productivity and orange hues can help stimulate employees’ focus. Christian Grey’s office colour scheme in 50 Shades of Grey is mostly grey, which is a very calming colour without being too boring.
Adding the right furniture
One thing you’ll notice about offices on the big screen is that they always have really good office furniture. A sturdy, comfortable chair and a big spacious desk are a must when you are an on screen boss. If you’re looking to purchase a new chair or desk yourself, you can get a range of office furniture from Furniture At Work to recreate one of these famous offices. Perhaps you can take inspiration from Dumbledore’s love of bookshelves to give your office some character? Or if you have meetings at your office regularly, maybe invest in some comfy leather chairs?
A personal touch
You’ll spend a lot of time in your office so you’ll want to make it as pleasant as you can. Giving your office a personal touch like adding photographs of loved ones or even adding some of your favourite artwork can make it a more enjoyable environment to work in. For example, Harvey Specter from Suits has lots of his favourite items in his office, like his signed basketballs and baseballs. If you’re a fan of The Devil Wears Prada then you’ll know Miranda Priestley keeps her favourite flowers in her office, like orchids, calla lilies and roses. Just adding little things like this to your office can give it that fresh update you’re looking for.
Hopefully these points will help give you the office inspiration you need to revamp your office and make it a more enjoyable working environment.
