    I'd add some green, something like lucky bamboo for some color. They bring life to a room and are easy to maintain, just make sure there's water in it.

    Looks like this:

    You can pick a few stalks for $1 a piece at any Chinese supermarket here in California. They also sell a small bag of rocks like the ones pictured above for $2. I imagine it'll be the same thing in Houston. If not, you can also order them online. Then purchase a vase of your choice at Target/Walmart/Ikea. I got a really nice one at Walmart for $4.

    My roomie put up in similar arrangement in our bathroom, which gave me inspiration to add one to my own room. :)

    In my opinion, avoid posters at all cost since everyone else who will have something on their wall will have one. I think a better idea is to have an informal family photo in a small portrait frame on your desk.
