Two weeks ago, I shared my story about how I found our first Pink Olive storefront space, when I was searching for my perfect “playground.” But what I didn’t explain was all the work required to turn that raw space into the playful environment I had imagined.
Here’s a little snapshot of the shop’s beginnings. I fell in love with the location and the charm, but it needed a major transformation (and many weeks of dedicated planning) before it became the bright, colorful playground that it is today!
Your personal “playground” might start in an unexpected form, just like mine did. But if you stay patient, diligent, and true to your vision, almost any simple space can become the space of your dreams. On this #happytuesday, in preparation for official “Have Fun at Work Day” on Thursday, I want to encourage you to create a work environment that inspires, surprises, and delights you. If your job or office truly suits your whimsical taste, then “work” and “play” are bound to be inseparable.
