Mental Wellbeing and Living In A Home That Matches Your Design Personality

The places and spaces that we inhabit on a day-to-day basis elicit powerful emotional responses that influence our health and well-being


The influence of your home's physical environment on your perceptions, cognitive capabilities, emotions, and physiological outcomes (mental and physical) well-being) is profound.


There is a growing body of research from many different countries that confirms these statements.


In particular, this research paper ‘Interior Design From An Integrative Health Systems‘ argues the relationship between the occupants of the home and the choice of interior style, colours, layout, placement of furniture, lighting etc are intimately bound together.


If this relationship is ignored, then it severely restricts the potential of interior design to make an enduring positive impact on the emotional health and well-being of the occupants.


In other words, if you are a homemaker, or, (use) an interior designer / decorator), and the deep-rooted design personality within the occupants is constantly referred to before starting:

  • a home improvement project
  • a room refresh (e.g. lounge/living/kitchen/bedroom)
  • moving into a home
  • designing and building a new home
  • starting a long-term tenancy

then the occupants will experience positive powerful emotional responses when they spend time in that madeover space/home.


Positive Powerful Emotional Responses like;

  • Feel a sense of peace, calm, and relaxation when you enter the room.
  • Find yourself more creative and productive in the space.
  • Feel more connected to your loved ones and the world around you.
  • Experience a sense of joy, happiness, and well-being.
  • Feel more energised and motivated.
  • Notice a decrease in stress, anxiety, and depression.
  • Simply enjoy spending time in the space.

Here are some specific words or phrases that you could use to describe the positive emotional responses that you experience in a newly designed home interior that uniquely matches your design personality:

  • Contentment
  • Delight
  • Euphoria
  • Excitement
  • Joy
  • Peace
  • Relaxed
  • Serenity
  • Satisfaction
  • Wonder

These are just a few examples, and the specific emotional responses you experience may vary depending on your individual preferences and needs.


The overall goal of excellent interior design is to create a space that makes you feel good, both physically and emotionally. (Not just “look good” or follow a trend, or a mirror of the personal bias of the designer (DIYer or professional) – regardless of your unique design personality).



Why is living in a home environment that matches you and your design personality so important?
