But for a home office, they can be a bit too much, especially if your office also doubles as living space when you’re not working. A better choice for your home office would be colors like blues and greens, which are energetic, but in a more calming way. This makes shades of blue or green ideal home office paint colors.
Go with a lighter green or blue hue if you want to pick a color on the neutral side that also works. This earthy, muted green is a great neutral base that also provides a calming, productive workspace.
However, don’t be afraid to go with darker shades like, rich blue Turkish. Darker shades can work well for a home office, as long it’s a color you’re happy with too.

Neutral colors work great because they are not distracting, yet provide a pleasant, soothing background that can enhance your creative thinking.
