There is a place for wild and crazy combinations and there is a place for restraint. A high-pressure office where many creative and high tech types must produce a daily stream of print and online information is a place for restraint.

And here’s how you enter the space from the elevators (my spy called this “womb chic”):
What kind of first impression does this give the visitor to this space? Bring on the Pepto-Bismol!
Finally, in these corner outer offices you can choose a space with red wall and magenta carpet, or (woo-hoo!) magenta wall and red carpet. How to decide???
Quite apart from the total impracticality of bright solid color carpets and couches, what do you think? Could you work here?
