hi Mair,
my previous T (I'm still shopping for a new one) had a touchy-feel new-agey office.

The waiting area had overly-dim mood lighting (others might consider it soothing), and a rather depression corner for kids to play in. I say depressing b/c the light was poor and the toys consisted of a sadly dented 'push the balls around on the metal wire things' device that is omnipresent in any office, whether it be dentist, doctor, etc, as well as a few VERY grubby ripped books. If I were a child I would HATE that play corner!

The coffee table had an excess of magazines of all kinds arranged in a fan display, and several boxes of tissue were scattered around in case of tears (I suppose.) There were some woodsy-crafty art projects on the walls and some tapestries that had woman-stick-figures and lots of colors. Overall I didn't like the feel of it.

The office itself had a couch that I'd sink in too far, and I hate sinking in too far, because I feel awkward and grasping when I try to get out. Her decorative style couldn't be further from my own.

But if I had liked her, I'd probably be describing the office in much more positive or at least neutral tones. (even the sinky couch!)

How about you?
