A friend of mine blogged about how she now works in cube-ville but hasn’t actually decorated her box yet. It occurred to me that perhaps she needs a little decorating help, so I put together some ideas for her.
I know you are a woman of discerning taste, so my first thought is that you could keep things simple, like this:
Or maybe go for understated elegance:
But perhaps that’s not cozy enough. Would you rather go with a British club look:
This is an elegant look, for sure, but if you start hanging out at the old money country club on the edge of town and start hobnobbing with the blue bloods, then I’m sorry to say that our friendship is over. I just wouldn’t be able to keep up and, frankly, wouldn’t want to.
I seem to recall that you’ve tried yoga at least once (or maybe you just mocked someone who does yoga), so I thought I’d put together a simple, natural theme for your office:
Speaking of long-ass work phone calls, perhaps you should keep some reading material handy, just in case you get bored:
Or if boredom is a real issue, perhaps you could add some entertainment:
But you know, maybe you want to be friends with everyone in your office, which means you’re going to want to have the coolest cube in the building. In that case, what you need is a full-on tiki bar:
At Christmas, I’d like to see you get into the holiday spirit:
And if you’re worried about alien abductions, my friend Jenn has the perfect suggestion for you:
But the fact is, you might want to make your work home a calm environment, one in which you can hide and work in peace, but no one will be able to find you, in which case, I suggest this:
These are just a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing. If you need any back issues of Martha Stewart Living, let me know and I’ll hook you up. Good luck with the decorating.
