How much light is there/how many windows- which way do they face?

sorry- I should have added my congratulations too! blush

I was going to suggest something zingy- like raspberry and lime .... because there won't be much of it visible, but it would brighten the place up.
Obviously, I don't know your personality, so you may be more of an F&B person, sorry!
West facing should be lovely though- can get away with subdued colours I should think.
Do people have to come to your office, or is it private? that may have some bearing.

I love grey for offices - mine is painted in that colour and it is a statement colour without being zany.. also plants look good against it, it is a good background for prints and wooden framed pictures.. I personally like slate grey on a feature wall and the rest crisp white... think it looks professional and sharp without being bland

Mine is quite dark but just on one wall...

is similar .. I like it as it is neutral but not dull and looks good with office furniture and can be a great background for your personal things...
