Coolors - The super fast color schemes generator!.jpgI love a thoughtful link roundup as a way to discover the fantastic writing others are reading and sharing online. Here are my good reads from the week that was.

Good Reads

Both my boss and husband sent me this article within 10 minutes of one-another. (Probably says something about my well vocalized wine preferences.) Redefining California wine — a fabulous piece on the new guard of pioneering anti-Parker winemakers. 

The fascinating science of aesthetics. 

I’m (really, really) fortunate that the open-concept office trend has never affected me — I’ve had an office with a door since I began my career almost seven (!) years ago. While my door is rarely closed, a private office space and the possibility of a closed door immensely increases my ability to concentrate and do good work.

For my fellow PANTONE-obsessed: get ready to waste hours of your life. 

I’ve now eaten at Eleven Madison Park three times — and each experience was much like this one (minus the dancing on chairs! Austin, we missed out…)

Your flight attendant is probably a democrat. 

May we never grieve as Sheryl Sandberg has this past month. But if we do, let us handle it with the same grace.

As I review the brilliant architectural round-ups around the web, I’m SO excited to be heading to Milan for the 2015 World’s Fair!

  1. my first job out of college was in a bullpen, two jobs after were also in bullpens. i didn’t know different. then i got a job in a cubicle which i didn’t care for, it was semi private, but not. now i’m in an office and sometimes i don’t talk anyone all day. my introverted self loves it but i do wonder what it would be like to be in an open concept environment sometimes…

    1. I have a very social office (comms people are a curious sort — we’re mostly introverted writer types who have been forced by profession to be hyper-social) so I don’t lack human interaction, for sure! While I don’t know better (having never worked in an open concept office), I think I would stress without the acoustic/privacy/imagined barrier of my four walls. But who knows!
