If you worked at Pixar, how would you decorate your cube?

I think I'd have a train set inside, going around the wall.  I'd have a big still from Ratatouille on one of the inside walls.  I'd have a fridge somewhere, with a freezer compartment, and perhaps a kettle.  On one of the walls I could have a wipe-clean patch so that I could draw there and note down ideas.  I'd a lift like the one from Ken's dream house too - so I could lift things up over the wall.

I'm not sure what it'd be like, design-wise.  I could have the York city walls on 3 sides with the Micklegate Bar made out of foam on the front in recognition of my home city (not that I'm there now).  Or I could do something simpler, like Jessie's donation box from Toy Story 2 or a Ratatouille cooking pot.  Or, perhaps one of those big WALL•E robots on the AXIOM.

That's an interesting question...because for the most part, as fans, we'd think of Pixar themes to decorate our spaces with (i.e., I'd love a Ratatouille kitchen set). But, most of the offices/cubes at Pixar are not Pixar themed and are themed like a tiki hut, an old bungalow style house, the fuselage of a crashed plane (possibly the best one there), a castle and so on. 

So...that being said, if I could decorate one that wasn't Pixar-themed, I'd think it would be kind of neat to make it look like a beach (complete with sand on the floor and audio piped in of the waves and seagulls and such) or like really amazing library with lots of dark wood shelves, leather chairs and such. I'm a sucker for amazing libraries - they provide such a great place to think! 

In case anyone wasn't aware...although employees are able to decorate their spaces any way they want, the cost is up to the employee (kind of obvious, but wanted to at least let people know in case they didn't know).

Awhile back, I had the idea of re-creating Andy's room with everything from the wallpaper to the toy chest. I feel like that would get distracting after a short while, though.

I really like your train set idea, Wee Dingwall. I would love to feature a die cast model diorama in my hypothetical office. I would decorate the rest of the walls with old car and food memorabilia and half a shelf dedicated to my books and nerdy collectibles.

Thanks!  Yeah, that would be good.  I'd have the train tracks going in a loop around the cube - and at the doorway, I'd have a hinged bar with tracks on that I could open and close when going out.  Then I'd probably have some kind of drop-down door - like a portcullis, but with no gaps.  

Yeah, that's it.  A rectangular blue sheet thing, but with a grey portcullis painted on or something.  It'd be very difficult, but I might even put in a little 'chink' in one of the walls so that people could see the tracks.  Or even a place where they could put stuff in the carriages and I would receive it! [rofl]

This is really just boyish enthusiasm on my part, but why not?  I would have my books and stuff, after all; a collection of some of them somewhere.  Perhaps not on a bookshelf over my desk; that would feel a bit confining.  I'd put them somewhere fairly secret, but where they'd be easy to find if you knew where to put them.

Aside from the train set, I'd be happy to make my interior as simplistic and 'boring' as possible.  So I'd have my inside walls painted brown.  It's a kind of welcoming, warm colour I guess; a bit like a cardboard box or something.  I'd want it to be quite roomy and spacious; not crowded or cramped. I could always use the turrets for stashing things like books; I wouldn't want cumbersome bookshelves as I've said, or chests of drawers or things like that.  

Obviously there'd be a computer, then there'd be the other stuff (wires and everything), then my fridge, a wipe-clean patch somewhere on the walls, a whole area covered with sticky notes with ideas on them, and a phone.

I'm not sure which I'd actually go with but here's everything I thought up;

Candy cubicle.

Ice cubicle (including painting the floor so it looks like a really thin layer of the stuff over a chasm). 

Edit: Fake ice and fake candy, of course. [tongue]

Transparent walls filled with water tinted blue and with some fake fish in there (maybe real ones. I don't know if they'd do well with dye and I don't know how I'd do with feeding them).

Walls made to look like a castle with stuffed animals on the balconies and towers and behind the windows. I'd need to do something to tie the desk and stuff into that; cover surfaces in pretty material and put more stuffed animals around maybe. 

Make every wall, inside and out, a white board, because if I go that far I should be allowed to draw on the walls (admittedly I'm not sure if that's a particularly safe idea since you'd probably be breathing in the fumes from the markers a lot, and I'm pretty sure that's a bad thing). 

Close in the entire place (Four walls, a door, and a ceiling), and, with a ridiculous amount of painting effort, make it look like an office in the air. There'd be so many options for this one; what kind of weather (bright, white cloud, or stormy grey ones with lightning), what time (Night, day, or dawn/twilight), what should be painted on the floor so it's "hovering" over it, if I should put anything else in the sky, if I do put anything in the sky whether I should I go for a realistic approach (blimps and hot air balloons) or go for a fantasy thing (dragons and phoenixes and things like that). I'd also have to see if I could set something up so the walls gave off light from where the pictures would (e.g. if I put lightning in the light would come from that).

Get rid of the desk, bring in a bed, decorate it with a comfy blanket and pillows, get something that would allow you to have a hard surface to put your computer and paper on, do all your work in bed. 

Gigantic pillow fort cubicle; cover the walls with pillows and throw a huge sheet over everything. 

(Yes, I realize I wouldn't be a allowed to do half these things, but I stopped thinking realistically pretty much immediately.)

Edit: I lean a bit towards the castle idea. Stuffed animals make me happier than they should.

OK - I love the transparent office idea A LOT!

So do I!  But the stuffed animals would be necessary for me too.

In fact, I'd add the stuffed animals into my city wall design.

My ideal cube is a cockpit-style cube in the shape of the Millenium Falcon's cockpit and interior. I would have the game board be my desk, where my computer/drawing utensils be. I would install shelves as well to display my Pixar/Star Wars collectibles. Oh, and a mini-fridge shaped like Han Solo in carbonite.
