Often overlooked, color plays an integral role in human behavior and can positively impact our working environments. Studies have shown that being exposed to certain colors in the workspace can improve productivity, promote creativity, and encourage honesty. And on the other hand, working in offices with neutral chromatic atmospheres, like grey, will increase the risk of burnout by 15% and decrease productivity by 12%.

For the first installment of our new “Color Revelations” series, let's take a look at cool and comforting tones and how you can easily incorporate them into your space, whether it be in an office, home, educational, or hospitality setting.

Where These Colors Work Best

Using lighter tones of greens and blues can help instill feelings of calm and peace in employees while reducing anxiety and stress, an important aspect when it comes to creating happy and healthy workspaces. Additionally, pink evokes casual and cozy vibes and can have a relaxing effect on colleagues. Finally, light greys and creamy whites convey feelings of sterility and cleanliness.

These cool and comforting tones are best for environments where people need to feel calm and relaxed such as educational spaces, communal areas, and lounges.

Natural elements, such as wood, can also be added to create a calm and cozy atmosphere. Even in Ash Black Stained, the wood's character remains visible.

In the future, tactility will become an even more important key factor when designing interiors. Cushions and poufs make up a crucial part of that.

Muted colors don't have to take the back seat of their bright counterparts. On the contrary! Subtle pops of color work perfectly when accompanied with neutral tones.
