The same thing that is gained by having pictures of your loved ones or
calendars with pictures of your favorite make of sports car on the walls
in your desk or cubicle.  Places where people have to work all day every
day need to places you enjoy being.  Different people need different
things in a space in order to enjoy it.

I'd certainly have more desk space without pictures of my wife and
children on it.  That would be more efficient.  It would also make work
slightly less enjoyable, which would hurt my productivity.
