Our Light Blue Home Office Paint Color

Let’s start with our light blue home office paint color – it’s Benjamin Moore Slate Blue 1648

I tried many, many paint samples and this one was the perfect dusty blue color I was looking for! 

It doesn’t look as light as pastel blue, but it’s a beautiful light blue that shows no undertones if you have lots of natural light. 

Remember: It’s really important to consider how much natural light your work area gets when choosing your paint colors. 

Always, always buy and try paint samples before fully committing to a color! 

The paint color card never looks like it does in your own home.

We love the home office layout of this one, particularly how the desk is placed under a window.

Rather than use a traditional rolling office chair, this designer opted for a standard chair with a bit more personal style.

We love this display of vintage art, decorative accents and her book collection.

What’s Inside of These Blue Built ins

​When designing your home office, function is just as important as the color scheme.

Consider what you need to store overall and find ways to hide anything unsightly.

1. Make Room for Filing Drawers

Get organized and take control of your loose papers!

We love the addition of these built in filing drawers to stay organized and keep these out of sight.

2. Hide Your Printer

Keep your desk space clear and always looking pretty!

Hide your printer in a standard cabinet next to your desk space.

You can either pull it out when you want to use it OR drill a very small cord hole in the side of the cabinet so the cord reaches just into your outlet.

3. Include Junk Drawers

Everyone has the need for a junk drawer!

Ours is filled with paper pads, pens, mail that needs to be actioned, gift cards and more.

Your clear desk space will thank you!
