How important is your happiness?

Learn how to make your home your very own happy place

We spend 90% of our lives indoors. That is quite a stat when you stop to think about how important that makes our interior spaces. I’ve been practicing interior design for over 25 years and feel so blessed to work with colour, pattern and design, so you could say I've found my happy place! The interior design world is wonderfully rich and diverse but when it comes to designing the rooms in your own home it can quickly become overwhelming and the fun stops there. There are so many choices to make and the time and money invested in fixing up a home is immense. But the importance in getting our interior spaces 'just right' for you couldn’t be more important. And I maintain it can absolutely be a fun, creative and empowering experience. You just a little know how, and that's where I come in!

The science bit

A recent study, GoodHome Report (scientifically carried out by the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen), found that happiness in the home is only second to our mental health in terms of our sense of well being. It's more important to us than our physical health, our jobs and even how much money we have in the bank. So learning how to create a home that not only looks stylish but also really lifts us emotionally is, I know you’ll agree, absolutely crucial!

 

It wasn’t until I discovered the Wright Theory, which set out to understand the real affects of colour on our psychology, that my own interior design practice was deeply transformed. The study proved how we each individually respond to colour, hue, texture and style in very different ways, which all effect how we feel emotionally in a space.  It made me realise that there is so much more to interior design than how a room looks, it's actually more about how a room makes us feel. While the trends are there to inspire fresh ideas, I maintain they are not to be followed, as the way we decorate our homes is a much more personal expression.The design of your home is deeply personal and should reflect your authentic sense of style and love of colour. This is the way to unlock home happiness, a home that really supports you emotionally. While my personal love of colour is very bright and chromatic I'm dedicated to helping you find your own personal palette. There are no copy-cat interiors here! I'm so excited to share my tried and tested process for unlocking that secret as when you implement it, it's truly game-changingat helping you create a home you truly love. 

A home that feels as good as it looks
