However, if the description is enlightening, I read on. For instance, if a character walks into a boy's room and the walls are pink, I'm intrigued.
Well, office description can be intriguing as well - if we know what things mean. For example, if we walk into an office describe it having a desk, a chair, a bookshelf, a window, a phone, it tells us nothing interesting. That's what normal, boring people have in their offices. Well, we don't want our characters to be boring, surface creatures. We want to learn more about them... What tells us about a character in an office?

2) Photographs (or lack of) and their frames - I love walking into restaurants and seeing photos of the presidents or actors with the chef. It's bragging, but they probably serve good food.

What do you think of a lawyer that displays his six-year-old's school drawing on his shelf?
Now that you know this, use it in your descriptions.
Next week, the other three things.
