5 things to shake up your money maker
Choose a lamp that not only provides good light but adds decoration to your desk. Don’t choose a lamp that has a bent frame, leans, or eats through bulbs. A beautiful lamp with great color provides a lovely glow and puts you in a good mood.
2) Window treatment
A simple valance is a great way to draw the eye up, add some color and decorate the window. Many clients I see neglect their windows and they are such a great window of opportunity! (har!) The point is, use what ever you got, a shower curtain, table cloth or a scrap of fabric left over from something else and use it to add some style. Don’t ever have naked windows!
Add beautiful accessories around your space. Choose things that suit your profession and personality. When you surround yourself with beautiful things you feel remarkably well. You honor the space differently than you would a scattered mismatched space. PJs vs J Crew.
Quite simply the easiest and fastest way to make your space posh, add art…BIG art. (GO BIG, OR GO HOME) It’s no secret that I love art, add a large 48 x 48 piece behind your desk and your space is instantly ready for business.
5) Indulge in the little things
As an interior designer and lifestyle expert it is my job to point out the details. When it comes to your office the little things are what make the difference. Have a cup of tea in a vintage cup. Use a cloth napkin when you break for lunch. Enjoy snacks like fruit, or crackers from beautiful thrift store plates. Have a diet coke in an antique wine glass. Small things make a big difference and make your office feel decadent and self indulgent. Cha-ching!
I just wrapped up an interview with Carla Kroger, from Daily Administration on this very subject yesterday. Stay tuned for the link to the recording!
