Ensure the room has good natural light

Use your favorite color on the walls
Color brings out moods. You should do research on the different types of colors and their effect on your mood. For example the sea foam blue or botanical green provide a calming effect. There are other people who prefer bright colors like orange and lime green.
Keep your technology neat and tidy
When cords are all over the place, it makes the room look messy no matter how neat it is. You can have your equipment in close proximity to outlets as well as easy access whenever you need to unplug. Use a beautiful cord cover for encasing cords on the desk also use a desk grommet to feed the cords and a cap that will help guide cords via a hole in the desk.
