Designing office spaces today is no easy task. Companies are becoming increasingly complex in terms of their functions and operations.
Those on the front lines of workplace design are working to anticipate the ever-evolving needs of businesses while creating a cohesive brand environment that embraces innovation and a company’s corporate culture and vision.

Monochromatic Expression The Oxford dictionary defines monochromatic as containing or using only one color. However, this definition doesn’t quite tell the whole story when used in terms of design. Monochromatic color schemes are the newest iteration of the color explosion that’s been taking place in commercial environments over the past several years. These exquisite color palettes only use one color, but they use the entire spectrum of shades, tones, and hints of that particular color to convey a uniform but still unique and easily recognizable theme.
This purposeful design strategy draws people in through creative expression of color saturation. This helps buildings establish a holistic unified image showcasing key functions and personality.
Why is it worth checking?
- Variation of tone, shade, and tint
- Textures and patterns
- One brand-focused color
- Soft hues and bold, dramatic shades
- Precious stone palettes and matte finishes
Hanging Horticulture Plants are more popular in office environments than ever before, with the emergence of living green walls and moss walls as staples of well-being and branding. The public adoption of biophilic design vaulting greenery into a near stratospheric level of popularity. Plants in offices and commercial spaces are nearly mandatory nowadays. With plant design engrained in buildings seeking a sustainable and wellness-forward image, green has become and continues to be an undeniable feature in the future of office design.
It’s safe to say that plants have officially rooted themselves in contemporary office design. With floor space at a premium, designers are turning to new heights to integrate their vegetation: ceilings. The ceiling is the next frontier for those striving to maximize space, efficiency, and incorporate the patterns of nature. Hanging vegetation often promotes the home-styled environments where the lines of business and leisure are blurred.

This design’s benefits are twofold for office workers. The amenities create a more welcoming and relaxed environment for employees who frequent the office.
