048: Home (and foot) Decor

Anna and Maria discuss decor this week, and how decorating our spaces can help us encourage creativity and wellness. They consider decorating as a creative act and project; a tool to promote mental health; a method through which we can curate body positivity; and much more! They also cover how decorating may be different for a young adult without much space of their own than for a homeowner, and how those of us with limited space can still maximize our spaces for different purposes. Anna and Maria also bring in some connections to past episodes on space, seasons, and values (proving just how holistic creativity and wellness can be!).

014: Creative & Productive Spaces

This week, Maria and Anna talk about the way we interact with our spaces. Based on their own experience, they focus on how physical space can affect creativity and productivity, as well as some of the space-related challenges common to young adults (like living in a dorm room or other shared or small space). They discuss a variety of topics that can affect how we perceive a space, including color, layout, size, lighting, decor, clutter, and feng shui. They also talk about some of the helpful changes they’ve made to their own spaces, and how they’ve tackled the challenge of living in a room that serves many purposes. Our hosts also wonder how their artistic inclinations may affect their experience of the spaces around them, and how perceptions of space vary according to individual differences.
