Hello Ash- I'd use a neutral wall color- gray neutral. Anything else is likely to affect color perception. Same with the floor. Your desks should be neutral in tone as well.
I've also got a big black tent/tarp over my work station to help keep out fluorescent and incandescent light from overhead lights.
My work is very color critical so I can't have any bright posters/calenders hanging around me our it might wash on my screen.

I've got an "L" shape desk for a Light box, CPU tower, primary Color monitor and a small area for a laptop/pc for workflow.

Please do everybody a favor and get good chairs!

MushMush,

I'm thinking to be make wall colors white, and around my desk you are right, it should be neutral grey all the sides and in front of my eyes. L shape rounded desk is fine to me, do u put cpu on the foot side or on the desk ?
Also I'm thinking covering my desk from sides with dark glass to prevent reflections of natural lights. general what depth is fine to put the monitor and pen tablet ?

Re: Office Setup for Retouching.

Hello Again- I've got My CPU tower on the table. The table is about 70cm/80cm deep. I would advise that you'll want an area for a keyboard.
Some desks have a tray that slides from under the desk so you can stow the keyboard when it's not being used.

I'm afraid I've never used dark glass as a light shield but it seems like it would work.

best regards,

mushmush
