How can I create an amazing work environment for my employees? Moving to a new building and I have a blank slate for office layout, design and decor.

I'm a senior at an online marketing company. My department is currently at 12; will grow to 45 in the next 2 years. Our corporate culture supports collaboration, free communication and open doors. Our unofficial motto is "We work hard and we play hard."
My company is moving to a new building and the owner has asked me to provide a floor plan, furnishings, etc.
My group handles all marketing including SEO, ad creation, advertising, copywriting, ecommerce optimization, etc. I want to create a fun, vibrant setting to stimulate communication and great ideas.
What's important to you? What stands out in your own workplaces, good and bad? I'm particularly interested in decorating and design, but other ideas like "A basket of toys in the conference room" are welcome too.
Bonus: tell me where to look for ideas?
Thanks in advance for your help with this.
