I turned down my company’s offer to stay with them. The cons (the commute, the inflexible schedule, the lowish salary, and the administrative aspects of the job itself) just outweighed the pros (the wonderful people, stable paycheck, benefits, and catered lunch). Oh, but I’m going to miss the catered lunches.
So it’s time to start preparing the home office. Which is also my yoga room. But I’m going to hide the office part in the closet, behind a curtain. I need to paint the room… something warm and calming, but not too calming because it’s going to be an office… The floor is a medium toned bamboo, rich in color. I love it. I’m thinking this color for the walls, with maybe a more vibrant saffron inside my closet/office… or even an orange. With crisp white office furniture. Or maybe grey furniture… I really like this desk from Crate and Barrel since it offers a swivel feature. A retractable extra desk! Unfotunately, I think it’s too wide to fit inside the closet. Hmph.
I ordered a KitchenAid mixer from Amazon last week and it’s arriving today. Cranky housefrau, if you’re out there, I’m gonna need that scone recipe.
