Acclaimed artist Susie Frazier has spent the last 20 years designing calm-inducing art and accents for hospitals, hotels, corporations, and homes. Having lived with undiagnosed ADHD and generalized anxiety since childhood, she developed her own methodology, rooted in biophilia, for enhancing spaces in ways that ease the overstimulated brain. Today, current research in wellness architecture has caught up with what Susie has innately known - that decorative decisions made in our built environments have a direct impact on our minds. In Designing For Wellness, she illustrates the ways in which home design and décor can contribute to both mental and physical health while providing a beautiful space to call our own.
As architects and planners sprint to learn about the new WELL Building Standard for developing healthier public places, Susie offers a glimpse into what's coming in the next generation of interior design. In a clear and simple format, Designing For Wellness delivers a collection of mindful tips that anyone can implement at home in order to nurture their own emotional well-being.
