DOES YOUR HOME HELP YOU FEEL NURTURED, INSPIRED, CREATIVE AND SAFE? IF NOT, WOULD YOU LIKE IT TO?
The New Mindful Home offers a refreshing take on the topic of wellness, highlighting the myriad ways we can use our homes to help us explore how we want to feel. Digging deep beyond aesthetics alone, and tapping into wisdom from neuroscience alongside my own experiences of over a decade spent working as an interiors stylist and writer, this comprehensive book pairs my trademark highly practical, actionable advice with stunning inspirational imagery and tons of takeaway tips.
Broken down into chapters and peppered throughout with expert advice and scientific findings, each page - similar to my previous book, My Bedroom is an Office - acts as a standalone spread offering advice on a single issue, from how to shop responsibly when redecorating to ways you can use aspects of minimalism or Feng Shui work in a busy family home. And yes, there’s also a spread on setting up a dedicated space at home to practice mindfulness meditation (and how to adapt this if you’re having to hot-desk this element, too).
With each chapter rounded off with a how-to spread to try for yourself, from creating a toxin-free DIY cleaning kit to craft techniques you can try to boost your meditative ‘flow' state, there’s also a meaty resources section to help you action much of the advice.
