"Our interiors not only need to be pleasing to
our eye, comfort our sensibilities."
Our interiors need to organize us and move us efficiently through our daily tasks.
We need open spaces for large gatherings
and cozy nooks to read with our
children and grandchildren.
We need our homes to bring us joy
and to celebrate our lifestyles and passions.
Our surroundings need to
assist us with dignity as we age and
to continually sustain
our health and wellness.
