How do you create or take advantage of beauty in everyday life?

Hopefully this isn't too chat-filter-y. Lately I'm spending a lot of my time holed up in a rather dull office finishing some major projects, and I'm looking for ways to refresh myself and get rid of that "dull" surrounding me. I'm wondering how you find ways of incorporating beauty into your daily life. Do you keep fresh flowers in your home? Do you always have Bach on in the background? Do you make a point of stopping to look at sunsets (this is one of my own personal favorites)? Any and all suggestions are welcome - especially "beautifying" things that might not normally count as beautiful!
(I've seen this question
but it seems to be more about cultivating an attitude - I'm looking for concrete things or activities, though I realize that having the proper attitude and looking for beauty is important too!)
