Minimalist and Focused 

You are the no nonsense type. Sharp, precise and always on task, you need some office art that fits your personality. For gaining inspiration in this office, you do not need insanely frilly, romantic and over the top pieces. You gravitate towards efficiency, precision and focus. That is why we would suggest that you opt for a contemporary graphic piece! Geometric patterns, clean lines, and striking color pops are the perfect addition for the mood of your space.

The Creative Office 

You love to think outside of the box and be non traditional. You are always ready for business, but you have certain tastes and don’t want to be tied down to the old corporate codes. You want the aesthetics to match your lifestyle! In this case we would suggest going for more abstract and impressionistic, and expressionistic works all in bright colors! Throw in some cool photos as well! You’re not afraid to express yourself in your work, so why not have an office that does the same? Mix it up with unique artworks that match your individual style.

Elegance in the Office 

You have an eye for the classics. You love to have an air of sophistication and fine tastes. You prefer to have some soft jazz playing as you work for focus. No task ever seems to make you break a sweat, no matter how stressful. To you, a productive work area involves decorations with the same kind of finesse that you do everything with. An elegant landscape, or a more realistic piece would suit your style very well. Go for something with some rich tones and brushstrokes. Give yourself an environment that fills you with confidence and keeps you at ease.

The Aspirational Enterprise 

You’re always dreaming big and shooting for the stars! You don’t just want to meet the requirements, you want to smash expectations. You’re a go-getter, always looking to over achieve. With your high energy and motivated approach to your work, your office art should carry that same spirit! Go for a bold work with bright colors and lots of emotive elements. Choose artworks that lift your spirit and give you that motivation to keep going hard towards your goals. In the times that you need a bit of a pick-me-up, you will be surrounded by some great artwork to get you going again.
