Now that the bonsai plant has survived it’s first full week in my cube, I am taking inspiration from it to a new level. While I can’t reupolster the fabric on the cubicle walls, nor can I reconfigure the layout, I can start adding as many tasteful decorative objects as I feel necessary.
Taking further inspiration from my recent post, Components of a Comfortable Office, and thinking more about what I would enjoy, here is a list of potential additions:
Objects that have crossed my mind are:
– desk lamp
– water fountain
– additional plants
– artwork, (watercolor or oil painting)
– Fluval Edge with desert-scape
– large, artistic clock
While most people would pick a theme and start decorating around that theme, I am eccentric, so the stranger the mix, the better.
I am contemplating leaving it up to the social media world by having an Improve My Cube suggestion contest. Those who suggested the top item for the week would be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift card or similar gift.
What do you all think? Do you want to help me Improve My Cube?
update – I had a suggestion for a fish… which I like. I was hoping to avoid large amounts of water, but that would also kill the water fountain, so I have to rethink the water and maintenance variables. Fish is a great suggestion! Anyone else?
