Designing For Wellness is a visually inspiring, easy-to-read book based on the design philosophies of acclaimed eco-artist, Susie Frazier. Having lived with undiagnosed anxiety and ADHD since childhood, Susie developed her own methodology, rooted in biophilia, for enhancing spaces in ways that ease the overstimulated brain. She spent the last 20 years designing calm-inducing art and accents for hospitals, hotels, corporations, and homes. Now she's offering a glimpse into what’s coming in the next generation of interior design.
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. As architects and planners are sprinting to learn about the new WELL Building Standard for developing healthier public places, Designing For Wellness delivers a collection of mindful tips that anyone can implement at home in order to nurture their own emotional well-being.
"Susie Frazier's work highlights the beneficial effect of well-building on well-being and illustrates how using elements of nature in our hospitals, homes, workplaces and daily environments can help to heal our mind, body and spirit. Her novel take on wellness represents a 21st century approach to holistic health and is supported by solid scientific data."
