It’s time to give your home office a professional look with a stylish paint job and stylish furnishings, a new book from award-winning designer and educator Lisa Marquez tells us.
“I’m going to tell you three tips to give home office designers and home office users a professional feel and look,” says Marquez, author of The Modern Home Office: Designing for the 21st Century.
She recommends looking for a good palette and using a professional tool to achieve the look.
“A good palette should be a mix of neutral colors and a light, medium or dark shade.
It should also have a neutral texture and feel.
It shouldn’t be too bright or too dark.”
You should also consider the amount of detail you’re putting into your home design, Marquez says.
“When you’re making a home office, the more you’re doing, the less it’s going to look like a pile of furniture and you’re going to get that feeling of a pile.”
Marquez’s advice for choosing a good color palette for your home designs is simple: “Don’t go to the color shop,” she says.
She suggests using a neutral or muted palette to make your designs more neutral.
She also suggests a simple and consistent design palette, with a variety of neutral shades to work with.
For a professional looking home office that works well for everyone, it may be best to use a neutral color palette and avoid dark, muted shades.
She advises choosing the right type of wallpaper to accent your home, because it helps you to create a more natural environment.
A good choice for this is a dark wood wall, with white, brown or green tones, she says, as it provides a contrast to the background.
A simple, consistent design and neutral colors are also the key ingredients for a home design that looks professional, says Maruzis husband, designer Andrew Marquez.
“They’re the most important ingredients.
They’ll look great on every surface.”

The Modern Designer, published by The New York Times, is an in-depth look at how design has evolved in the last 30 years, and how designers are changing how we live and work.
Marquez is also an award-winner for her book, Designing For the Future: Design for the Digital Age, which focuses on the intersection of design, technology and the 21-century workplace.
Maruzas husband, Andrew Maruzes, has been a designer for more than 20 years, most recently designing the design for the World Cup 2018 World Cup stadium, which was designed by Marquez and was the first stadium to feature a digital roof.
“We’ve had the World’s Cup, the Olympics, the Paralympics and now the Paralymbics.
We’re in the middle of a revolution,” says Andrew Marizas, the design director for the International Olympic Committee.
“There’s a lot of new technology.
The World’s in the air and I’m sure people are looking forward to a change in how they live and think about how they work.
We want to be the best team, the best city and we’re trying to make it as good as we can.”
Maruzs husband Andrew Marvez, designer and founder of the design company Design By Design, has worked on many world-class events, including the 2022 FIFA World Cup and the 2020 Olympics, and he’s been designing home office designs for over 25 years.
“Design is a big part of how we manage the world, but it’s a team sport, so you want a team with a lot in common and the same passion for design,” he says.
He says that a team of talented, motivated and committed designers are what sets the best teams apart.
“You can have people that are the best at something, but they’re also the best because they’re good at something.
That’s what’s so great about a design team,” he adds.
Marvez and Andrew Maruthas team is making a bold move with their home office.
They are taking on a huge challenge: designing the World Champions’ home stadium for the 2022 Olympic Games, and then designing the stadium for a second World Cup in 2020.
They’re also partnering with the United Nations for their Olympic design for 2022.
“It’s a huge undertaking, and we can’t wait to start this journey,” says the Maruzys.
“The team has all the resources and the resources to make this a reality.
I don’t know if it will work, but I do know that we have a great team behind us.”
Marizs book is available for pre-order.
