Turner’s Tips for Office Decor!

First and Foremost: 

The most important thing to remember is that your office is a working environment. So it’s crucial to keep it practical and useful.

Office Politics:

Don’t get too personal. Save that for home!

Keep It on the Down: 

Low Steer clear of “important,” big-ticket items that are too pricey. You’re the boss; don’t be too extravagant!

Kick It Up With Color:

People feel happy in pleasing spaces, so have fun accessorizing with brightly colored throw pillows and lamps.

With a hit television show, and a book out this fall, you’d expect interior design to be the last thing on Mindy Kaling’s mind. But several months ago, the comedienne found herself craving a remake of her offices on the NBC lot. For help, she called upon Nathan Turner, star of Bravo’s Million Dollar Decorators. “Mindy is hilarious and has an amazing personal style,” says Turner, “so I knew right away it would be a fun project.”

“Kaling always knew what she wanted,” says Turner. “And that makes all the difference.”
