Pay Attention to Your Paints to Fit Each Specific Need

But before you start ordering expensive light fixtures and pieces of art, take a real look around your office. There may not be anything wrong with your interior design, but rather a glaring (and glaringly white and bland), affordable transformation your office could use that would help immensely.
