It's official, summertime is almost over.  Many people might be enjoying a last minute beach vacation.  Others might be daydreaming about their vacations past. If you find yourself daydreaming about the beach, there may be some options for you.  Below are some ideas people have implemented to make it feel more like a vacation in their very own office, just by adding some creative features to their modern executive desk.

 

 

 Your Own Private Beach

How would you feel having a giant patch of sand beneath your designer office desk, being able to dip your toes in the sand?  According to the website, Lifehacker, Justin Kemp was inspired to create this personalized office environment from the band, The Beach Boys.  Justin explains the concept of his desk set-up:

 "The sand is relaxing, but for me, it's more a symbol of my permanent vacation.  It's the design of a lifestyle where 'work' becomes so satisfying that vacation and retirement become undesirable."

If you don't want the hassle of changing your entire desk set-up, or want to avoid the inevitable mess of sand all over your floor, how about a mini version of the beach right on top of your modern executive desk?  According to the website, Beach Break comes with everything you need for a pretend miniature day at the beach. Relax and imagine you are sitting on the white beach chair under the blue umbrella as you rake the ultra fine sand, collect seashells, and fill the miniature sand pail.
