We can spend over 40 hours in our cubicles. And sometimes those spaces are dark and depressing. And we don't put any style into them. But there is no reason why our workspace can't be as warm and inviting as your living room. So I'm here to do some cubicle makeovers and create Zen-like creative inspiring spaces for you.

This is "Cube Takeover." Hi, my name is Freyja. I am the product director for food.com. The thing I hate most about my work space is it's kind of sad around here. And everything that's in here just kind of happens to randomly be here, except for maybe this bottle of tequila over here which is for emergencies. I guess my design inspiration, I'm going to call I like spaces that are not too fussy and overdone.

I pinned a lot of things that have natural textures and that were found outside. These are kind of things that resonate for me. The one thing that I've done to kind of like make this space mine, I brought in some pictures of my kids, and I'd love to keep those at my desk. Some things that I would love to have in my workspace are more natural light. Just something that makes it feel like a little bit, you know, alive and not so sterile would be great.

I'm a huge fan, and I cannot wait to see what you guys are going to do. I think Freyja's inspiration is my favorite so far. She loves organic, clean lines, a neutral palette, but then saturated-rich colors brought in. She also loves greenery. She travels a lot, and we're in an office that does not have great light.

So I have a big DIY surprise coming at ya. But first, let's demo this place so we can then give it the makeover it needs. These lamps look like cylons. "Battlestar Galactica." It's like a really fun soap opera. It just takes place in space.

Now that he have everything moved out of here, I'm going to need to bring in Freyja's style, which is all about neutral colors and a lot of bringing in the outdoors indoors, including terrariums. Let's get started. To honor the neutral palette that Freyja really wants, we're covering her blah, beige cork with this really nice gray. But we're bringing in a more saturated hue by putting a nice Guatemalan printed fabric in this internal shelf. And then, I'm going to speak to that nice saturated hue in the artwork as well.

The piece de resistance, so Freyja really loves a living wall. But again, we're in an office space. We don't get a lot of light. And she travels. So I made my own DIY faux non-living wall that has a nice little vintage touch with this cool crate.

You can make one, too, with me on HGTV Handmade. I'm officially obsessed. Bringing the outdoors in is a great way to create a Zen vibe in your workspace. Right here, I created some really simple terrariums by just putting some moss, shells, and driftwood in glass containers or putting a nice glass cover over it. And then, as you can see here, we just filled some apothecary jars with a little bit of moss and seashells.

And I feel like I'm down by the beach, man. For a quick and easy art hack idea, you can just get some saturated printed paper and frame them, super cheap and super pretty. Freyja loves to travel a lot. So I've got some animal tacks and some creatures that you might not see walking down the streets of New York City, though you might find a unicorn. With a neutral palette like this, it's really important to bring in some nice bold saturated colors in your textiles.
