It’s the end of another semester. It’s been one of the busiest I’ve had and yet on some level the stress level has been lower. I think it could be because I redecorated my office. That seems like a simple solution but bear with me. I have had a baseball themed office for years. The sport is one of my favorites because of the nostalgia it brings.

Then I held up the swatches to my favorite cup of joe and found the closest match. The office is now in a color which evokes good feelings. The walls have coffee decor, but nothing overwhelms. The lighting is different. Perhaps it is time to rethink your office as less of a utlilitarian room and more as a creative environment.
The photos do not do the office justice because of the difficulty in shooting angles, so why not come over and have a cup of coffee with me?
