What We Do

We are wellness designers with a passion for healthy living. We will work with you to discover the root cause of discomfort and dissatisfaction in your home and lifestyle. Our wellness coaches will guide as you, as you create the beautiful, healthy and balanced home perfect for your family.

Wellness design goes much deeper than the traditional interior design experience. At Wellness Via Design we focus on a creating a truly healthy home and lifestyle. Our coaches guide each client as they learn and explore what it takes to create a healthy home environment. 

Your home should be a personal reflection of you and your family – who each of you are, what inspires you, what calms you. Each space should have elements of your past as well as what you imagine for the future. We believe everyone who occupies the home should experience physical, emotional & spiritual well-being.

We guide each client through the science behind the concerns, so you can reach your dream goal of creating the functional and balanced home suited to your family's lifestyle.

Why We Focus on Wellness:

At Wellness Via Design we are interior designers with a passion for health, well-being, and knowledge. This is because we believe our physical health, emotional well-being, along with our knowledge, whether it is from intuition, education or observation are truly our most precious assets.  

When I founded Wellness Via Design it seemed simple. We all place immense value on our health and well-being, and surely everyone must understand just how toxic our environment has become, right? The problem is that, with our busy lives in this 24/7/365 world, few people have time to stop and truly grasp the health implications of our current environment, even the conditions present in our own homes.  Read More

We Want You To Experience a Healthy, Balanced and Functional Home

Air Quality

While air pollution in our cities is a serious concern, a more pressing issue is the growing body of scientific evidence indicating that indoor air is often more polluted than the outdoor air in the most-industrialized cities. 

Lighting

As lighting technology moves forward, some advancements including fluorescent and LED lights have left us a bit in the dark when it comes to our health. Both fluorescent and LED lighting lack the near-infrared light our eyes need. These bulbs also often operate in the 3500K to 6000K spectrum, a spectrum that is detrimental to our eyes.

Electromagnetic Radiation EMF/EMR

When we look at our bodies in terms of electricity, it is easy to see why outside interference can affect our internal systems. What we do know is that extensive independent research has shown enough evidence to conclude that bioeffects of EMF/EMR can, and do occur at low levels. Levels that are well below the federal guidelines. It is important to understand that there is an alarming contrast between the results of studies conducted and funded by the telecommunications industry, versus those by independent researchers.

Biophilic Design & Forest Bathing

Biophilic Design and Forest Bathing are two areas of research focusing on human exposure to nature and natural elements. Our modern homes, which are often lined  with artificial lighting, drywall, painted wood trim, and synthetic carpets, are often lacking the true natural elements needed to connect us to nature.

Water Quality

Water is a precious life-sustaining molecule which makes up 70% of the human body. Yet, clean and pure water is becoming increasingly difficult to find, even in our own homes. Tap water in the United States includes a hearty dose of industrial and agricultural contaminants linked to a multitude of negative health effects.

Acoustics

Acoustical issues can be difficult to mitigate. This is the reason acoustical engineers exist and spend their professional lives either trying to amplify beautiful music or dampen unwanted noise. At home, acoustical mitigation, as with many areas, often ends up being trial and error
until the correct solution is reached.

Consumer Products, Finishes,& Furniture

We have reached a point where toxic chemicals have consumed and infiltrated every part of our environment, including our bodies. Consumer products can contain any number of the over 80,000 chemicals currently used in the United States, most have not been tested for safety.  

Feng Shui

Concern for the environment has been an element of Feng Shui for millennia. Tao, or “the Way”, means living in harmony with ourselves, each other, and the natural world. This philosophy contains a very holistic view, connecting not only the heavens and the earth, but also health,  medicine, food and lifestyle as part of one interconnected system.  Creating balance in our homes, living with intention, and being mindful of our lives,  environments, and outcomes creates a greater propose.

Your home should be your sanctuary, a place to enliven, stir, motivate, calm, restore, revitalize, and renew.

Always remember, everything you bring into your home will affect the quality of your indoor air.
A little light reading material to stimulate the intellect.
Use the Precautionary Principle
If you are not sure if a chemical or product is toxic avoid it. Be safe, not sorry.
When burned, beeswax actually has the ability to clean indoor air,
rather than pollute it.​ Paraffin candles, or the candles commonly found in retail stores, release highly toxic benzene and toluene when burned. Instead of paraffin, look for candles made with pure beeswax.
At night it is particularly important to avoid blue light.
Blue light can easily interrupt your circadian rhythm and the production of melatonin. Electronics including hand-held devices, TV’s, computers, cell phones and video games are big blue light offenders. These devices should be turned off or put into night mode at least 1 hour before bed. Instead of using your electric device, try picking up a good book. Take time to enjoy the feel of the paper between your fingers and the sound of turning pages. Your eyes and intellect will thank you!
Plants make a great addition to any home.
They provide a natural element and have the ability to clean indoor air. One of my favorites is the snake plant. Not only is this plant attractive, it’s easy to care for and can tolerate low-light areas of the home, like bedrooms. Snake plants will even survive a forgetful plant owner, who neglects to water for weeks at a time. The snake plant is also a champ at removing formaldehyde and benzene, two toxins frequently found in modern homes.
Dedicate a space in your home,
to allow your creativity to play. Then let your hair down and rock on my friends!
Ditch the fly by night trends,
follow your senses and fill your home with beauty, memories and aspirations for the future.
By gaining knowledge,
We take back our power and loose our fear.
Imagine what we could accomplish,
if everyone worked together for the good of humanity.
