ER Physician Dr. Travis Stork has been occupying the same office at The Doctors studio for nearly 10 years – and it’s showing its age. When he wants to relax his back, for instance, he ends up lying on the floor. “It probably could use a little upgrade,” he confesses.
It’s not just an aesthetic problem -- “The spaces we spend time in do have a major impact on our well-being,” says Dr. Stork. Fortunately, Leura from the design firm Laurel & Wolf is here to give his workspace a fresh new look.
When she’s done, Dr. Stork is amazed. “Holy cow!” he exclaims. There’s a new standing desk, photos of the great outdoors and of his beloved dog Nala, and a chaise longue where he can stretch his back without lying on a towel on the floor. “I am so, so excited!” he says.
Dr. Stork tells Leura one of his favorite things about the office re-do is how much more light there is in space. He feels more energetic and cheerful now! “If I’ve ever been grumpy onstage, it’s probably just my office’s fault,” he laughs.
The takeaway? Never underestimate how much better a makeover can make you feel -- whether it's your look or your living space. For more information on interior design, visit their website and enter the code "LWDOCTORS" for a special discount. Expires May 31, 2017.
