My T.s office has always been dingy, shabby, monotone (greenish and brownish grays, with an industrial blue rug and some black furniture). It's not comfy, just shabby. sort of neglected, static.

It used to have a comforting feeling in its first incarnation, when he had a light brown shag run on the floor. Some of his colleagues thought it didnt' befit his status-- whatever that was,-- so over my objections, he bought industrial steel blue rug. I found it dispiriting because it was cold and impersonal and also hard and cheap looking. The other rug was comforting.

He's changed chairs, and couches. He's promised to use a decent carpeting store when he replacing the carpet, but that's not a promise I rely on. Because he sort of promised me before, then abrogated the promise afterward.

The office is kind of oppressive. Dark, poorly light, without nice light. walls standard white, no interesting odds and ends. One bookcase. Collections of journals on smaller bookshelves behind the couch. The main decoration is his photos, which he took in various countries. many of them are beautiful, but their effects is somewhat compromised by the closed-down feeling of the room itself.

There's not much light because it's on the first floor on a building on a main avenue with lots of shrinks offices around . It's one of those old offices that has a door in at the front, and a s econd door out at the back, so people don't have to go past one another. Everyone used to, but he mentioend at some point, that everyone had started using the second door out.

I wish the room were nicer, but we don't seem to have the same aesthetics.
