3 Ways Interior Design can Drastically Improve Your Life

Hold up.

This sounds a tad dramatic. That interior design can DRASTICALLY improve the quality of my life?

Yes, and I’m going to prove it to you right now, away we go:

1. Great Design Creates a Sacred Space

The world is crazy right now, on this we can all agree. I’m very involved in several causes which I won’t launch into at the moment, except to say, there are some days where with all the information in the headlines it can get really depressing. I’ve always been a “glass half full” kind of gal, but somedays it’s harder than others to stay on this side of the glass.

Whatever your particular pain point, be it the environment, animal rights, politics, an unreasonable boss or grumpy neighbor, your home is where you come as a respite, a safe space away from ALL that madness.

Which is why I love beautiful things and interior design.

It’s not that we’re burying our heads in the sand. We know all that is still out there waiting for us the minute we step outside the door. But let’s face it, we need home now more than ever, a sacred sanctuary where we can collect ourselves again before heading out to go another round. And since it is your home you get to create it to be the most joyous, the most zen, the most fun, whatever it is you want to express in your personality. Where else do you have that kind of control?

Moreover, your home is where you can be surrounded not only by the things that express your personality, but your MOST beloved and favorite things.

See what I mean by “drastically”?

2. Great Design Creates Peace

Great design creates a harmony and flow in your home, a rhythm in your space. It’s the furniture layout, color, lighting and accessories all working together like an orchestra (or jazz band) in collaboration with each other. This is why it’s important to stay on top of messes, paperwork and other items that can block that flow or make us frustrated.

When our homes are organized and well designed we’re more open to creativity and good feelings because that’s what comes naturally from beauty.

3. Great Design Connects Us

How can we talk about great design without talking about inviting our favorite people into our homes? When your home is flowing with great design vibes you want to share the love and your awesome space!  You create time for more dates at home, more dinner parties, and true connection with others, something that social media just can’t provide.

Design is imperative to having guests in the first place. You need to consider where people will gather, sit, eat, and my favorite, dance.

We’ve all heard of FOMO, but have you heard of JOSI? It’s the Joy Of Staying In. And that’s what you want to do when you’re just madly in love with your home. And when you’re feeling the love and peace in your home, others are picking up that energy too. This creates an opportunity to have your loved ones over more often, enjoying both your home and each other.
