The decorating of any home, apartment or office space is no easy task, but it´s even hareder if you posses an eye for detail. It is even more of a challenge to decorate well when you realize how much it matters to decorate your space in ways that reflect who you are. I have recently been busy redecorating my office. It was of highest importance for me that my office reflects who I am and that it is an environment that makes me feel comfortable while writing. I chose, after putting much thought into it, to go with a Japanese art theme.
I always had a passion for Japanese art, but it seems like it got a rise in popularity in the last few years, which made it more widely available. There is something special about the look and feel of Japanese art that I admire, so I figured it would be a brilliant idea to decorate a special space that I use for doing endless hours of motivated writing. I strive for a high awareness of my environment and so I know that I need to decorate and create my work environment with care. My writing gets much better when I am inspired by my surroundings, and I know that Japanese art is very good source for that.
I started my search for Japanese art in thrift shops and in unique art shops. Anyone who also is interested in Japanese art for their home or office could start by trying his luck on the internet by searching for Japanese art. See if there are any specialized shops in your area and then make a visit. While you can purchase great pieces of Japanese art of the internet, it can get hard to really have a feel for the look and color scheme of an art piece without seeing it with your own eye. So don't restrain from being picky and to take your time searching around for Japanese art pieces that match your style and needs.
The reason I love Japanese art is their vast color scheme. I am very much affected by color, so I love the bold and brilliant hues that most Japanese art is comprised of. I dived into my search for Japanese art by choosing a color scheme that I wanted to decorate with and then I chose pieces according to that scheme.
I am certainly not sorry that I chose to make Japanese art the focus of my office decor. In fact, I am very happy what I chose. It inspires me to work even harder and to create in the same way that the Japanese have created such great pieces of art.
