Over Christmas break, I tried to help my husband perk up his office. It’s like a sad little cell with bare walls and questionable furniture–and none of it bothers him in the least, I might add. I’ve tried explaining to him how a single lamp and a few things hung on the wall will give him internal happiness. He still doesn’t get it, but I went over to help him out anyway. . .
I zoned in on the big, empty wall by his desk first, with the help of Indie Mats. They make framing a breeze because they can actually be hung independently of a frame—no hammer or nails needed. And, they come in lots of fun colors and patterns. For his office, I used two sizes and patterns—the lapis blue detail mat and the larger lapis blue herringbone pattern.
If you decide to hang them as-is, you only need the adhesive square tabs that come with each Indie Mat. (Safe for walls!) We ended up popping ours in the front of some inexpensive black frames, removing the glass.
In other breaking news, we bought a small shelf from IKEA to put on top of his desk, so that he can stand up and work for part of the day. Not beautiful, but functional :)
Now, if we could only do something about those burgundy office chairs…. Like throw them away.
