desk decorating

The office can be a depressing environment. People were not meant to spend their days penned up in cubicles away from natural light, air, and the sight of blue sky and green growing things.

Getting in touch with nature can elevate mood and reduce stress. To improve the atmosphere at work, bring the outdoors in with plants and flowers. Here’s a look at my desk “garden”. It’s a Muji plastic makeup tray on which I placed several indoor plants growing in plastic pots and two bottles which I use as flower vases. I place fresh flowers on Monday and toss them on Friday when we leave for the weekend.

Aside from plants, display things that make you happy when you look at them, like this calendar by Workman Publishing. I got it half-off at Fully Booked, and it is like a mini-art book, displaying a beautiful picture of a shoe on each day’s page.

“Suede day shoe with decorative cut-outs and silk pompom, France, c. 1680s.”
