hey friends,
i’m literally still full from last night’s spanish tapas birthday extravaganza at our favorite neighborhood resto, zarzuela – chorizo in red wine, garlic and white wine prawns, serrano ham, paella valenciana, the most divine sangria on earth and a dessert feast marie antoinette would be envious of! my sweet birthday boy had a silly night with his best guy pals and his best girl and even got a birthday serenade by our wonderful  friend and zarzuela co owner, arturo. i think he was an opera singer in a past life!
as for today, it’s moving day at work and my team and i are moving next door to the sunny corner office. i’m over the moon and we’ve been dreaming up ways to make our new work home a more whimsical, inspiring place….
thank goodness for 20×200! it’s my go to shop for fresh, fun art pieces…for only $20! 
so here are some of the pieces that would make our place sunny and shiny…balloons, sparkles and maps!

what about you, friends? if you could redecorate your office space, what would you do?
here’s to adding a little more color in our lives…

    Oh, I love these! If I could I would make it more inviting and not so stuffy and boring. I think i’m due for a big colorful canvas!

    Spanish tapas is definitely one of my favorite meals! And nothing beats really well made Sangria. Do you like white or red besT? If I could redue my office the first thing I would do would be to paint it a subtle soft grey. Then I would put in different sitting chairs with a colorful yellow textured pattern. Pair that with a few creative light green, red, and grey prints and some B&W photos and there you go! Thanks for sharing! Love the look of your blog by the way. Following!
