Decorate Your Office Walls

Sometimes art is the inspiration behind a room and other times it’s the last thing you need to complete a room. When outfitting an office decorating your walls becomes an even greater challenge. Whether you like it or not, you will be judged by your coworkers, clients, boss and anyone else who sets foot in your office, so choose your artwork wisely.

I am very particular about what I put on my walls. I don’t “decorate.” There is no pressure for me to cover every available surface. Art has to be meaningful to me; it has to make me laugh, jog a memory or otherwise inspire me.

I’ve done several blog posts that relate back to office walls. I’ve hung art canvas as bulletin boards and magnet boards in a grouping, but I haven’t shown you true art that is fun, but office appropriate.

There are a few styles that I think are fun for the office:blog-image_office-wall-art-graphic1. Jane Mount Ideal Bookshelf 364: NYC 2. Sugar & Bean Print Co. Paper Airplanes 3. Penny Jane Design Faux Gold Printable Arrows 4. GoGo Book Art Cat With Glasses

Here is some message art. I consider this type of art to be a stylish version of the tacky inspirational office posters.blog-image_office-wall-art-motivational5. Wishful Printing Pick Your Battles 6. Sugar & Bean Print Co. I Like The Way You Work It 7. Sugar & Bean Print Co. Don’t Kill My Vibe 8. Sugar & Bean Print Co. Monday Hates You Too

Here is why I love having bulletin boards in my office.  Somewhere to post cherished messages from employees and coworkers:blog-image_office-wall-art-bulletin-boards-bossI used art canvas instead of cork for bulletin board space. It would probably look better if I painted it first, but I didn’t have time and now they are covered with stuff.blog-image_office-wall-art-bulletin-boardsYou can also hang magnet boards in a grouping shown here:blog-image_office-decor-magnet-board-calendarThe feature image (at the top) and this image show office prints we made for Office Depot Max. The small size is perfect for mixing and matching to cover small or large wall spaces.  They are lightweight, so even work on cubicle walls. blog-image_office-wall-art-od-canvasesI hope you’re inspired to decorate those walls!

Quick Tips

Feeling Overwhelmed

When you're feeling overwhelmed and having difficulty getting started, it helps to make a list. Get all that stuff in your mind down on paper. Limit yourself to one line per item, if you have a due date include that next to the item. Don't worry about priority or additional detail at this time, just get it on paper. Once you've finished, group items into categories by priority, then type, for example errands, calls, urgent, etc. Relief will come as you work through the list and cross things off.
