Color Me Happy | The Impact of Colors in the Workplace

Everyone who knows Interscape knows we love our orange but colors go beyond culture and branding and have a powerful impact on us and our productivity. The workplace environment has changed from mellow, soft colors to colorful work environments that encourage positive emotions in employees. We've seen this shift toward color in many projects year after year and it can absolutely transform a space and have a direct impact on productivity and performance.


Let's start with a color we are very familiar with....ORANGE! It generates a feeling of happiness and fun and adding orange into the workspace sparks excitement, enthusiasm, and energy, helping employees, like us, to come up with new and innovative ideas.


The color red is a vibrant color that can energize and excite employees. It is proven to increase heart rates, inspiring action. Although it can be overwhelming, being smart about what areas in the office to add reds can gather short bursts of action.


The color of wellness and health and adding biophilic design impacts us physiologically and psychologically. When people see green, they feel relaxed and refreshed, improving concentration.


Blue is used to soothe and provoke intellectual thinking and inspiration. People tend to associate blue with security, trust and also spark great ideas. Blue is an excellent choice in an office where employees gather to focus.


A color similar to orange, yellow is often linked to creativity and inspire new and innovative ideas. Adding yellow to a space brings happiness, optimism and excitement.

So how do you promote your culture and achieve your goals? Branding, accent pillows, paint colors, plants, work surfaces, furniture and accessories are just a few ways to get you thinking!

Home Office Happiness

Where my Homies at??!!! My work from Homies that is. We can help! What a great way to start the week, having a client share pics of their new home office provided and installed by Interscape Commercial Environments. When Bryon Kamay of the Knights of Columbus contacted us for a new home office, we were anxious to assist.  Since Covid hit, Mr. Kamay has worked nearly 100% remotely.  As he puts it, “I have been bouncing around the house, attempting to work in every nook and cranny there is, all while dodging two distant learning boys and a wife with a home photography business. I spend most of the day on audio and video calls with colleagues and partners around the country in space not conducive to doing so. My environment was not allowing me to do my job efficiently and it was taking it’s toll on my overall wellbeing.” Kamay’s requirements for his home office were having a dedicated office space, great acoustical isolation, proper ergonomics and a great value.  Challenge accepted!

Setting Up an Efficient Home Office

Whether you are a remote employee or working from home temporarily because of the coronavirus pandemic, here are a few essentials to stay comfortable and productive and keeping the importance of ergonomics in mind! Sitting all day is not beneficial for your physical and mental well-being whether you are working from home or in the office. Working from your couch or in bed may seem convenient or more comfortable but in the long run, it puts you in the wrong mental state and will negatively impact productivity. There are a lot of options for height-adjustable desking that allows you to sit/stand throughout the day and Teknion has various options like the Emote, hiSpace or the Navigate. Seating is just as important as your desking for an efficient home office so take the time to select and invest in a comfortable chair; ergonomics and comfort count when it comes to sitting. We have endless options: Contessa, Sabrina and the Projek office chairs and for a quick, cost-effective opt
