Awesome stuff gang. Hey where do you get that cane or bamboo fencing I saw covering walls in several of those photos. Can you order it by the roll?

Mahalo for the 411. Now I just have to see if the Lowes here in the Lehigh Valley will be able to get it.

Recently I moved to a new building, and in the process I lost my window and my view of the San Francisco Bay. So when I got to the new cubicle, I decided to make it a place I could live in. There were some considerations: 1) I could not put things on the outside of the cubicle; 2) All additions had to be easily removable; 3) Anything I put in the cubicle might find its way out of the building in the hands of the cleaning crew, so nothing of monetary or sentimental value should be included.

I forgot to take before pics, so here are pics of the cubicle next door that looks just like mine did, and like every other cubicle on the floor looks.



AFTER
Here is the view as you enter the cubicle:


The wall I'm usually facing:


The "Wall o' Tiki Art and Postcards":


The tropical flower arrangement in the dead corner behind the lei-framed monitor, and one of the overhead cabinets which has two bamboo reed placemats as frames for tropical photographs:


The other overhead cabinet with the placemats framing color photocopies of two mini Chongolio paintings (remember, nothing valuable in the cubicle, so the originals are at home). Also notice that the same bamboo placemats have covered the generic beige bulletin boards under the overhead cabinets... the pushpins still go right through between the reeds:


The tropical sunrise poster on the wall over the black metal file cabinet that serves as my credenza:


And a close-up of the tableau on the bamboo runner on the "credenza" including an original doodle by Little Lost Tiki:


Some of the comments I've heard are: "It feels like Tahiti in here!" "Your cubicle makes me feel like I'm on vacation!" And my personal favorite: "Where's the blender?"

Here are my sources:
Cost Plus World Market: grass mat used to cover main wall, bamboo runner, tropical photos and poster, luahala pencil cup and candy cup, bamboo and woven reed drink coasters
Bed Bath & Beyond: bamboo tissue box cover, bamboo reed placemats
Hula Beach in San Clemente: the lei around the computer monitor
Beverly's Craft Store: faux tropical flowers behind monitor
My company holiday party raffle: Hula Homer
Chongolio's Yard Sale-o-Rama: faux hibiscus garlands along top of grass mat and side wall, green ceramic faux bamboo planter used for flower arrangement, two small live bamboo plants, the cute little monkey note clip, the plastic puffer fish hanging from the overhead cabinet

The Little Lost Tiki artwork on the Wall o' Tiki Art & Postcards are just printouts of online pictures. The postcards and the Tonga Hut Tiki Wonderland print are ones that I have duplicates of. There are also a few tiki magnets on the cabinets, and the one thing you can't really see in the pics is the "Notes from the Tiki Pad" note pad designed by Chongolio on the desk in front of the computer.

Oh, one last thing ... under the regular Hershey's Kisses in Easter colors are some of the Limited Edition Coconut Creme Kisses! I just had to have tiki snacks too!

This has been a fun process! Thanks for looking!

Wow....you folks have really done great jobs on your cubes....I am impressed. I'll bet you are more productive in the tiki environment...which is good for the company.

My desk is such a mess, I only got postcards up... however, now I'm inspired to add a lot more creativity on my desk. As much as I hate my job, it's time to start making myself a little home away from home... hmmm, now if I can find a way to tiki-fi my car, now that will be a challenge.

I'm not too familiar with cubical life but it's so cool that you can do that to your work station. Way to go!

There are some great suggestions on
this thread for tikifying your car. I've already got a few tiki touches in mine, but I have some ideas and will be implementing them in the next couple of months.
