I’ve been thinking about this photo for a couple days now. Oprah Facebook’d it the other day and I want to explain what I saw and why I think it’s important.
Here is Oprah Winfrey, one of the richest people in the world, sitting at a bare desk, underneath it is a cardboard box banker’s box. But it doesn’t look so bare. Take a look at the flowers and the lamp.
Had this been my desk there would be no flowers on the table. First would be my computer, my notebooks and all my junk that I think is most important. The colorful, orange flowers make this desk seem so beautiful.
It’s a space that you want to be in. This desk with it’s flowers and simple, but elegant black lamp, invite you to work there.
We need to think of our spaces in the same way. What is most important to have on your desk? What inspires you?
