Spin Cycle: Office Decor

The other day I was talking with my co-workers about different offices they had and how they liked or disliked the way their desk was set up— and it reminded me of one desk set up that was the worst for me. Since this week's spin cycle is on decorating, I felt that our attempt to make the space more tolerable makes a good spin.

I had a job where my desk was directly below the skylight. When I first moved in during the winter it was nice to have the light, but by the time summer rolled around it became unbearable…


Here is what the sky-light looked like in the afternoon.

In order to be able to work in such conditions, I bought a golf umbrella and some PVC piping to rig up a shade for myself…


Here is the umbrella shoved up into the skylight.

Our department got new cubicles to replace our desks. During the time that the old section of the room was unoccupied, we decided to take advantage of the skylight…


Here is an example of how much sun came in through the skylight
(Enough to get a tan, eh…)

So with a little ingenuity and some office plants, we made a great tropical paradise…


This is our Tropical Paradise
