One of the things that is really great about my new job is that I have my own office! That’s actually super exciting for me because my old company squashed us all into cubicles like sardines. I’m also actually allowed to bring in my own pictures and listen to music and wear casual clothes (other things that were prohibited before).
So I’m trying to figure out some things I can do to make it a little cozier here. Obviously I can’t go overboard on office décor, but I do want to do a few things to beautify. I’d like to bring in a nice little rug for under my desk (since we have tile floors), a blanket (I get cold easily), and a shabby little supply organizer – I’m thinking something like this:

I actually had an idea for this in my head already, but this is pretty much exactly it. I had a wood set of storage drawers in mind (wood just seems cozier to me than this metal one), but it’s just the look and style I was going for.
So here is what the space looks like.
It’s a bad, bad cell phone picture, but that’s where I spend my days now! I normally don’t go for the 70’s wood paneling look (ever), but in this case it makes the space feel very warm and welcoming. I’ve been surfing Pinterest for some small-scale décor inspiration. There really isn’t much there that isn’t meant for a home office, but some things could probably be adapted to a professional office building setting.
My eyes have been craving white after staring at the orange walls for the past 2 weeks.
A pretend window would be nice…
