Healthy Home + Nature= Joyful Design!
OK, so most of you that know me know that I am not a numbers gal, but I do know that whenever I can combine healthy living in a home and nature, we are definitely going to make it a joy filled home!
I took a few months in NYC for a little R+R (I know, right?) and research on how to best bring health and wellness into our homes through great design and joyful living.
There were wonderful workshops on Biophilic Design (think how to bring nature in!) and inspirational talks by Clodough and the author of Joyful by Ingrid Fetell Lee ( more on why we need confetti in our lives, later!). All this confirmed what we have been celebrating here at Mandeville Canyon Designs for 15 years. A home filled with nature, healthy habits and materials, combined with a good dose of laughter and smart design delivers you a sanctuary worth coming home to every day!
Tips and Tricks
So, in the coming weeks and months we are going to focus on all those elements that can make your home a place that makes you and your family smile.
We will give you tips and tricks for getting a good night sleep (spoiler alert, you need to cool things down to heat things up!).
The power of color throughout your home (did you know that certain colors will help you study and others will lull you to sleep?).
Feng Shui, Forest Bathing, how pets bring joy into your home (and how to deal with all that furriness!). How to Kondoize your space for clarity ( code for organize that mess), and the practical aspects of good space design from kitchens to closets. We will look at creating sanctuary baths as well as all the other rooms in the house. We will even help you to move your outside in with fabulous year around gardens and ways to make you breathe a little easier.
In addition, we will have some great interviews with locals who are walking the healthy lifestyle and bringing us amazing goods and services to make our home life a little easier and a whole lot more joyous!
So, join us on this new and exciting adventure. It’s time feel good about the choices you make at home and have some fun along the way!
We are hear to help! Let us know what you are thinking and if there are any topics you would like us to cover. We plan on being a Joyful Home Tribe and we are all in it together!
