"Nature is not at place to visit. It is home." ~ Gary Snyder
Beautiful scenes in nature are inspiring and restorative. It is important that the home environment has similar benefits. As in nature, the experience of a space affects emotions, health, and overall wellbeing. Research has shown that positive changes (organization, color, design, etc.) in the living and/or work environment correlates to mind-body improvements.
Dr. Myra Miller saw this first-hand with her psychotherapy clients. Her clients' home and workplace affected their progress and overall quality of life. Dr. Myra created Living Sanctuary: Heart and Home to design aesthetic and restorative home environments that support and cultivate a fulfilling, healthy life experience. Heart and Home options include: detox, decluttering, professional home staging, styling, redesign, and renovations.
Dr. Myra has created aesthetic, inspiring, restorative environments that offer optimal function supporting lifestyle and goals throughout the US. Her approach draws from environmental psychology and design research; architecture, interior design, and color theory; green-sustainable/biophilic design; and current design trends for stylish, attractive, and meaningful staging and redesign. Dr. Myra extensive knowledge and expertise is integrated in the unique redesign of each home.
