When I first saw this image of this inspiring office space by interior designer Abbe Finemore I was slightly taken aback by the yellow accents. Only because I was not used to seeing that particular hue used in a work environment before. After sitting and looking at the picture for awhile I realized that I really liked it after getting used to the idea. Yellow is a bright and energetic color which is really perfect for when you are trying to get work done. It will most definitely keep you awake during the midday slump, and the black wall color grounds the whole room so the yellow does not overwhelm the space.

So I started to wonder if I could style an outfit for work using the same color scheme without it being too overpowering for the work environment. To my surprise it worked surprisingly well. The key is just using the yellow as an accent color and making sure to keep the look really streamlined. I never knew a bit of yellow could be so sophisticated.
