As our lives become increasingly stressful, we can all appreciate the role our homes can play in providing a calm, relaxing and re-energising haven. This timely book looks at how everyone can enhance these positive elements by using, among other things, colour, light and aroma, to ensure that our homes become peaceful sanctuaries where our energy is restored.
Each chapter deals with essential elements which include the use of aromatherapy, choosing colours which relax or revitalise, using natural materials and designing lighting for maximum therapeutic benefit. The emphasis throughout is on practical, accessible solutions which will not mean redesigning your entire home.
There are ideas for every budget and alternative approaches are suggested where the ideal solution might not be possible. Step by step instructions and informative tip boxes ensure that all the ideas are easy to apply. This new approach works from the inside out. Rather than imposing the latest trend, it shows you how to create an environment which reflects your own personality and lifestyle, and promotes good health. For a totally different approach to home design which will improve the well being of you and your family.
