To say I had a challenging life growing up is an understatement. But I was able to cope because my mom was my rock.
When I was 24, she passed away and my world came crashing down. I had absolutely no coping mechanisms. I don't even think I knew what a coping mechanism was, but what I did have was an honours degree in Psychology - which luckily turned out to be a strong foundation leading me to a lifetime seeking wellness.
Since then, I have been doing everything and anything to help navigate life - swimming, running, cycling, yoga, meditation, reading, mindfulness, eating healthy, spirituality, self-care... you get the point.
All have helped, but one path has significantly made a difference because it touches me every single moment of every single day - designing my home to empower self-care.
But it's not just self-care. I needed to trigger the sense of being where I felt most at ease. There is one place that has always allowed me to breathe a bit easier, feel a bit lighter and experience pure joy - that is the coast.
So, in combination with self care, I have used the coast to inspire my home design to promote wellness.
I want to help bring wellness to all who seek it... so my mission is to inspire people around the world to design their home for wellness.
