The way I see it on 5/10/2012
A few weeks ago, a childhood friend sent me a text in the middle of the night. We had not spoken in the longest time so I was surprised to hear from him. His text said:
"If we were lawyers, we would be the guys on the show, Suits. It's on right now. Check it out!".
After finding the buried remote control (it somehow found it's way at the foot of the bed) and flipping on the show Suits, I had to laugh to myself.
Office design on my brain today which is what made me think of Harvey Specter's office. The design is serious, straightforward and all about business...it says just enough about the person who occupies the space without saying too much.
While a collection of signed basketballs is not an option for me, I'd love to bring in something that reflects my personality that isn't too personal, too childish or that's going to confuse people. Time for brainstorming! As Nate Berkus says, "collections look better in multiples". So true.
Most ppl bring in their favorite lamp from home to the office. It's usually more functional than decorative. I've got a great lamp from Target right now sitting on the corner of my desk. However, I like the idea of bringing in a lamp (or two) with a white drum.
Even though I do not have a glass door, I do have glass windows along side my office door so that people can see in or I can see out when the door is closed. Perhaps I can convince my boss to have everyone's names put on their glass windows similar to Harvey's in picture #3 (without the title of course). Am I the only one who likes this? I can't see her agreeing to the idea.
I love all the ample amount of seating in Harvey's office. I have two seats directly in front of my desk for guests. The problem with that is that I have 3 people on my team (not including me). So if they all come in at once and demand a meeting, someone has to stand. Not sure where I would put another chair without it looking like I am holding a meeting everyday or expecting a guest...but it's a thought. More brainstorming.
Check back in tomorrow for a post about my studio.
