#2 Tapestries

I've always worked in cubicle space and find the best way to personalizeĀ the walls is to purchase a tapestry or fabric in bright colors or patterns,Ā then pin it over the boring, grey fabric walls.

This really helps to brighten, and personalize the space without beingĀ permanent or adding clutter to your desk.
