How to add flare to home work spaces
Looking for a space that will help foster your creativity at home or work? There’s an easy way to encourage your next big idea— or a whole batch of them — while adding pizzazz to your office or living space.
Start with versatile surfaces that allow you to doodle, draw and even build. Then accent your environment with one or more vivid, saturated colors that inspire. Here are a few ideas for turning any space into creativity central:
• Unleash your imagination. Paint a colorful accent that will boost your creativity and unleash your inner child with Rust-Oleum’s new Chalkboard Tint Base paint. Choose one of 12 inspiring colors that provide a unique writable-erasable chalkboard finish. Transform awall, door or desktop into a colorful space for pictures, words or flow charts. According to color research, purple is the color of imagination. Try different Chalkboard colors like Grape Fizz to bring out your inner Picasso. Or, tap into the energy of red by painting a wall with Chalkboard Fresco Red. Mount a chalk holder nearby to be sure that ideas are easy to capture.
• Take a vacation from the mundane. Reserve a special space within your home for inspiration, and maybe even a celebration of your latest work. Whether it’s an entire wall or a smaller area, apply Rust-Oleum’s Specialty Magnetic Primer as a base coat for your paint. It makes almost any surface able to attract magnets. Top coat with your favorite wall paint and add extra energy with funky magnets to hang photos, notes, daily thoughts— anything that will spark your imagination. Liven up your thinking space with Buttercup Yellow or Apple Red paint on furniture and accents. Both are high energy colors that inspire creativity.
• Create an office brainstorming room. It’s often difficult to pull yourself away from the phone or e-mail when you need to come up with an original idea. That’s why many companies dedicate a conference room for brainstorming. To create your own special space, be sure to leave room to draw out your next big idea with Rust-Oleum Dry Erase Paint.
Chalkboard and magnetic finishes make creativity possible anywhere.
