How to Curate the Chicest Cubicle Ever

Design mogul Jonathan Adler offers his expertise

Reflect your personality

“Your workplace is where you spend most of your life, so why not make it eccentric and glamorous? Think of Mad Men’s Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce — they nailed Sixties-stylish. Figure out what makes you happy, and get decorating.” George Nelson ball clock, Design Within Reach, $310.25

Embrace color

“I believe color is the most easily accessible antidepressant, so I exhort people to use it abundantly. However, cubicles should look harmonious, so it’s best to use pops of color with pieces such as a picture frame or a fab piece of art.” Swissted posters, $50 to $150,

Don’t overpersonalize

“If you’re wallpapering your cubicle with photos of your pets, it may be too much. A little flair goes a long way in a workspace. Decorate in a choreographed, organized fashion.” Synchronicity Stockholm magazine files, Container Store, $10 each

Work with the layout you’re given

“Unless you kill your neighbor and take over his cubicle, the layout kind of is what it is. Don’t try to change the whole setup — work with it, but do add little tidbits that hint at your personal style.” Jonathan Adler Whale Bookends, $150

Tweak the lighting

“Like every other light fixture in your life, the one in your cubicle needs to have a dimmer. Run and buy a dimmable desk lamp. This will make you look younger, thinner, and all around hotter. (And who doesn’t want that?)” CB2 Atomic Yellow Table Lamp, $129
