This was a very underutilized space. It was a room with white walls and two futon-style mattresses on the floor. We’d often joke with clients and visitors that it was our napping room. The only real use of this room was during our Halloween party for our fortuneteller.
After the party, the desk that acted as the table for the fortuneteller was left in the room, giving Kathleen the idea to start utilizing that space in a more productive way. As Red Fan has continued to grow, we've needed a more private, comfortable room where team members can go to pitch to the media without disturbing the others in the office. So, Kathleen came to me and asked, "How would you like to decorate the nook?" Actually, it wasn't even the nook at the time. It was just the "little space on the third floor."
My first question to her was, "Do you want to know what it's going to look like?" Of course, she wanted a big reveal.
