Meaningful office décor has never been more essential. In the age of COVID, many of us are still working from home.

In our latest blog series, “Picture This,” we use the magic of Photoshop to present our artists’ latest artwork in a whole new light and offer you a few of our tips and tricks for brightening up your home office. So if you’re unable to make it out to the gallery in person, we hope you’ll enjoy a virtual viewing of our fresh, bold art in beautiful, modern home office settings.

Let us know which works catch your eye, and we’ll be happy to show you how they might energize your work space.

Limited palette abstract works help wash a sense of peace over your space. This smooth resin piece by R. Nelson Parrish delivers a beautiful moment of calming blue along with an all-too-relevant reminder to “Stay Tuned.” The subtle gradations of blues in Shawna Moore’s encaustic work seem to pulsate with the wind and water elements that inspire her work. These unique pieces are certain to keep your space feeling fresh and calm, helping keep work distractions to a minimum.

Adding a touch of sentimentality to your home office can offer greater motivation for your work day. This mixed media piece by KOLLABS harmonizes beautifully with the modern style of the space, while adding a hint of real warmth. The three bears curled on the couch together serve as a sweet metaphor for the family that inspires us to work harder. Next to the work, this dazzling vase by Jared Davis complements the KOLLABS piece with its own glow of warmth. Simply watch how Davis’ glass work is illuminated by the sunlight in your space, and you won’t help but feel inspired.

If your home office doesn’t have a ton of wall space, you can still find beautiful, creative ways to incorporate your favorite artwork.

One possible solution for a lack of wall space is an art shelf. Art shelves present a trendy way to display your favorite work with ease. Simple to install, you can use an existing shelf or bookcase or mount a standalone shelf.

Another possible solution to a lack of wall space is sculptural art. In this modern office scene, we show how you can do both! Sculpture adds greater dimension to an art ledge and your home. We recommend subtly layering different works to give the vignette a truly unique, dimensional feel. Don’t be afraid to mix and match different artists styles and media to add even greater depth.

T.S. Harris, “On the Slopes.” oil, 40″ x 40″

What’s in your Zoom background? Sometimes the memories of vacations past and the dreams of vacations to come are the greatest motivators to get you through the work day. When this is the case, we recommend surrounding yourself with artwork that keeps you focused on your goals by reminding you of what you’re working towards. Perhaps that looks like a landscape painting of your favorite mountain retreat or skiers on powdery Park City slopes. The work of T.S. Harris delivers all of the sweet nostalgia and dreamy scenes you could hope for to keep you motivated and energized.

If you gravitate towards modern, muted tones in your interior design, consider allowing your art to be the pop of color and texture in your home. These highly textured pieces by James Penfield, Joe Norman, and Horacio Rodriguez add greater dimension and interest to a space, while maintaining the modern, fresh look of your home office.
