My home office needs civilization.
Not organization - although a little more would help - but civilization.
Right now, it resembles a cross between a war room and a loft shared by twelve members of a cult. Maps and notes are taped on the walls. Books and project boxes are scattered everywhere. A variety of briefcases divide some of the territory. This project is on this wall. That project is on another.
In short, it is functional, but not civilized.
By the time I'm done, there will be:
- New paint on the walls;
- Possibly some new carpeting;
- A noir Paris telephone;
- Appropriate artwork and photos;
- Maps that are framed;
- More project boxes;
- Shutters instead of curtains; and
- A comfortable chair that will be a sanctuary unto itself.
It will still be messy, but it will be "civilized messy."
