I didn’t know whether to file this post under Cube Envy or Decor Dilemma — I certainly don’t envy my friend Kristen who went back to work last week after celebrating a milestone birthday, to find her office completely under wraps. Gift wrap, that is.
In a twisted homage to the artist Christo, Kristen’s co-workers commandeered her space and wrapped anything that wasn’t nailed down . . .
Even the tape dispenser and stapler got the treatment, above. Kristen took the shenanigans in stride. When I asked her how long it took to put the place back to normal, she said she still wasn’t done: “I’m unwrapping on an as-needed basis.”
“I plan to leave the guest chair and maybe the waste basket as they are,” she added, “because they both look better this way!”
Kristen’s co-workers certainly let her know how much they love her — their little “installation” must have taken hours. It was a big gesture designed to mark a big day. Happy Birthday from styleNorth!
