These are some of the items I have gathered for my husband's office -
If it were my office, I would add some quirky touches like a yellow phone from the 70's -
and this "sculpture" from Crate and Barrel -
He likes the painting* but questions the use of a lamp in his already well-lit office. (I didn't even mention the yellow phone.) I may keep the lamp for my kitchen - because it makes it look more like a living room. My husband may want his office to look like an office and not a colorful living room. So, we will probably go with a more subdued color scheme and more traditional accessories like the globe I bought him for his birthday -
I'll let you know if he let's me add anything quirky. I may find a spot for the yellow phone in my house.
*In case are wondering, the painting in the vignette above is the one I started at our church's street fair last month.
