Home Design meets therapy in this holistic, gorgeously photographed guide that “thoughtfully and beautifully unpacks the tools and ideas to support mental wellness at home through design and styling” (Justina Blakeney, founder of Jungalow).
Our surroundings are more than just a reflection of our personal style. The right lighting, furniture arrangement, and paint colors have a direct effect on our well-being. Whether you’re looking for better work/life balance or design solutions for your family, interior designer and licensed therapist Anita Yokota walks you through Home Therapy: her signature system for setting up your spaces to nurture your mind, body, and spirit.
Featuring beautiful photographs and practical tips, Home Therapy focuses on the four “domains” that must be addressed in each room in order to improve your living experience:
● The Individual Domain helps you get to know yourself, connect to your ultimate purpose, and discover what you need in each space.
● The Organizational Domain walks you through decluttering each room and increasing its function so you can be your most efficient self.
● The Communal Domain inspires you to form more authentic connections with others using good design layout and ideas for gathering.
● The Renewal Domain is about self-care and creating the right energy for rejuvenation and recharging.
Feeling calm and confident when you step out the door starts in your home, with intentionally designed spaces. With Home Therapy, instead of basing decorating decisions on trends and fads, you’ll be able to create thoughtful, personalized interiors that support your authentic self.
