How would you decorate a (corporate) office?
I have been promoted at my company (in the energy sector) and will be transferring to a new workspace soon. My new office, part of a restored building built around 1920, is lovely - lots of heavy, ornate dark woodwork and crown moulding - and has quite a bit of presently blank wall space. In the office I'm currently in (and have had for quite some time), I've accumulated some rather flambuoyant decor - those of you who know me know I love Mexico, the southwest, and color, and my current office has long been a reflection of that side of me. The new office, however, is at a higher level in the organization and I don't think "colorful Jen" will transfer well to the new position, so I am going to save the vibrant artwork for home.
I am able to bring in my own artwork to decorate my new office, but want it to be appropriate to an executive assistant's digs. My new boss has decorated his office in a very traditional manner - he has several beautifully framed lithographs of wildlife displayed along with his mahogany furniture, tufted leather sofa, antique clock, etc. For my office, I will need two rather large framed pieces (prints probably since originals would be cost-prohibitive, I'm sure!), and just wondered what you would choose to display if you were in my shoes. Any thoughts or suggestions on what would be lovely to look at on a daily basis, but not too "out there" (as is my usual decorating tendency!) - ?
I should add that whatever decor I bring in will belong to me, not the organization. That's why cost is going to be a factor. ;-)
