Roundup: The Good, The Bad, and The Funny of Home Office Decor

Yesterday, a friend was working in another co-worker's office (our building is going through some much-needed renovations), and she observed, "There are hand written positive affirmations all over this office. The sticky right by my face says, "Open your eyes and look within...are you satisfied with the life you're living? -Bob Marley, Exodus." Certainly the decor in your home versus your home office is going to be slightly different--the workplaces that we've enjoyed looking at the most are the ones that are full of inspiring ideas and mementos to spark creativity...or even to simply remind us of how great our last vacation was. Rifling through our archives, we found some pretty creative--and pretty funny--home office decor ideas to motivate and inspire. Or just to make you laugh. Take a look after the jump...

If you think your office is cluttered, take a peek at Mary Randolph Carter's office at Ralph Lauren. A part of me wants to spend an entire week excavating all of her treasures, but another part of me wants to steal those froggy rain boots and make a run for it.

I'm not sure where I found this photos (perhaps someone sent it to me?), but what I do remember is that I really, REALLY wanted to hang this neon light in my office during a particularly frustrating week at work.

Gregory offers his Top 10 Affordable Wall Treatments. (Apparently, one of them is tin foil).

This montage of vintage Sweet Valley High had a few of us (OK, me) admitting to have read the books back in the day (...and I kept them).
