Creating An Outstanding Office - Part 2

January 07, 2018
Colors in your office:

If your office is in a particular gua/area on the Ba-gua, then you might want to use the color with which it is associated in your office. My office happens to be in the Wealth Gua, so it’s painted lavender, with white trim and deep purple accents. 

Our beloved Professor Grandmaster Lin Yun, former leader of the BTB Sect of Feng Shui said in his book Living Color ISBN 1-56836-014-2 that the following are good colors in the CEO’s office:
Accounting firm colors: White, beige, or yellow


  Agent’s office: dark green, red, white, black/grey


Architect or designer: Blue, green

Computer/internet office: Blue or  green

Construction: Green (see above), white, black/grey
Nice work, HGTV!






Executive Offices in creative fields: Sky blue, green, red, or multi-colored

Psychologist, psychiatrist: White
HGTV, you've got it right!
Business Interiors: Use an equal amount of the following colors within the space: black, green, red, yellow (or beige) and white.

Last week we shared the importance of desk placement  within your office.  A reader asked a question, "What do you do when you have a one bedroom apartment?  I have my desk in my bedroom because I want to separate my personal life from my financial life.  Does that cause problems?"  Another reader asked, "What do I do when my business and my personal life have to co-exist in a studio apartment?"  Good questions, right?  The answer is that you really want to have a separation between your desk and the rest of your life.  Even if you use a curtain, screen, or blind, or some means of separating your "office" area from your living area or your area of rest.

Getting organized often starts with purging lots of old "stuff" that you haven't used for a while.  Think of it the same way you go through your clothes closet and send stuff to charity- some of it really needs to go.  If you haven't used it in a year, just say 'good-bye!' to it.

Is there more to consider besides desk placement and color?  Absolutely!  Your artwork and imagery need to reflect your goals in your career or your home.  Consider the color of wealth (purple), and the images of water, or growing foliage (especially trees and greenery.)  Whatever inspires you would be appropriate for the images found in your office.
