For a Laugh: Unicorn Cubicle

For a Laugh: Unicorn Cubicle

Awhile back, we read (probably in Domino?) that a bathroom is an ideal place to fully commit to a crazy theme or daring color choice because the space is relatively small, and therefore the retina-searing will be kept at a minimum. And in case you were wondering, the same holds true for office cubicles. During a business trip, we visited Kelley in her "second home." She's begun to deck out her cubicle in what can only be described as Cosmic Unicornucopia. Check out the beginning stages of her collection after the jump and feel free to offer some suggestions on how to take her office digs to a whole new awesomely bad level...

Like most cubicles, Kelley's little 100 sq ft nook was generic and boring. In an effort to lighten up the office doldrums, she began coming up with crazy decor schemes. Initially, she thought about turning the space into a fake forest with woodland creatures and plastic plants; but the minute she laid eyes on one particular lamp, her direction changed completely. We're offering her some inspiration from Kate Veatch's house in Dodgeball to show her what kind of potential her cubicle could have:

INSPIRATION: The right lighting makes all the difference...

CURRENT STATE: Kelley's stained-glass unicorn touch lamp is so bad that it pretty much left us speechless. It has three different brightness settings, and there's glitter trapped in the glass so it dutifully sparkles. As the description says, "Let the fantasy of unicorns be part of your d├ęcor..."

INSPIRATION: Unicorn figurine groupings

CURRENT STATE: Unicorn paraphernalia (and uh, an encouraging drawing) frame her whiteboard. P.S. that pink and white unicorn will supposedly grow 2' high in water.

Got any tips for Kelley on what she could add to her space to make it even more mystical? We're thinking about sending her our old box of My Little Ponies...
