Colour Your Workplace & Be More Positive!

Posted on November 17th, 2010 by

I have always wondered why so many office spaces tend to major on grey for their equipment? And why people who like colour and objects of fun in their work space are often regarded as lightweight and frivolous? And if, because these tend to be women, the dismissal is because of that, as men originally called the shots on workplace design and still do.
