As I’m sure is the case for many of you, 40 hours of your week are spent in a not-so-stylish office wor cubical. I am one of those (lucky?) people. A few months ago I asked to move to the front office…which has a window! Windows are hard to come by in many offices so this is a BIG deal.
Although the window alone does a ton for my office, I have added a few other small things to spruce up my space.
First, I bought a couple place mats from Target. They have added color, warmth, and interest to my little workplace.
I also threw in a flea-market-find dictionary for a little something extra. (Please pardon the florescent glare. The struggle is real.)
Next, a lamp. This is such a quick and easy mood fix to the florescent world in which I spend hours each day. Plus, I adore lamps. I found this $10 lamp at the one and only, you guessed it, Target. (I promise I shop other places, too…sometimes :)).
And, my favorite part…the personal touches.
I gave you a preview earlier, but here is the close-up of the floral “H” my sweet sissy made me for my birthday.
Finally, this elephant was something my dad bought my grandma when he went to India. When she passed away, it was one of the keepsakes that I was able to add to my home. It constantly reminds me of my grandmother and dad. Two people I am proud & thankful to call family.
One day I will have a home office where I will get to pick out every single detail. But for now, this is a pretty good compromise.
