Working in a cubicle can dull your senses. Especially with white desks, white walls, and white floors. But it’s been scientifically proven (oh yes, I don’t pull any punches) that an aesthetically stimulating environment directly effects work performance. Think of your desk as a blank page, just waiting for you to make your mark on it. With some carefully chosen pieces, you can transform your work space and invigorate yourself with positive, productive vibes.
