Oh my goodness am I excited to share this project with you all! Months ago (monnnnnths), I volunteered to breathe some new life into our conference room at work. We are the creative department at our school, yet our conference room was rather bland. It was a little beat up, too.
We here call this color “nicotine yellow.” Doesn’t that just scream creativity?
No? That’s what we thought, too. So we formed a mini committee and brainstormed ways to beautify our conference room.
First and foremost, we needed COLOR! Two of my coworkers and I pow-wowed on the floor trying to pull in colors from our lovely carpet. We decided to go with two tones of green, with a lighter color on top and a darker color on the bottom.
The color alone was a huge change for the better, but there was still work to be done.
After some discussion, we decided to fill the walls with pictures that represent the University of Maryland and our students. One one wall, we did a huge canvas triptych. On the opposite wall we did a gallery style wall with more than 20 canvases. We added an oversized clock to the back wall, and the room months in the making was finally complete.
You know I loved working on this project — so much fun. It was a treat to work with so many of my coworkers on this to make our space so much more colorful and fun to be in.
Here’s a close up of the triptych:
And here’s a panorama shot:
A special shout out to my coworker, Tony Richards, who took these fabulous photos so I could share them with you. He is our photographer and videographer and has several photos displayed on our wall now. He also has a fantastic blog that you should check out, http://www.tonyrichardsphoto.com/. Seriously… click that link! You won’t be sorry.
See, isn’t his work amazing? Here are a few of my favorites from his blog:
Thanks for the photos, Tony.
And thank you for stopping by! Happy Friday and have a fabulous weekend

Oh Daniel, Why must you write in Greek? Haha I can’t believe this didn’t get spammed! And I’m sorry there are no pictures of you. You are on the blog though — I wrote about your sweet Bear Emporium sign.
Absolutely LOVE IT… amazing transformation
What a nice room to work in – professional, engaging without being distracting, and reflective of the institutional mission. I am impressed. The only thing I would add would be some big plants. Your co-worker really is a great photographer!
They’d have to be fake or we’d kill them haha. But that’s a great suggestion!
