I’ve always loved creating beautiful spaces, yet it was my career in marketing and branding that inspired my interest in how the space around us influences the way we feel. For over a decade I worked in the global fashion industry, and I became fascinated by bringing to life the brands I managed – the powerful first impression you can feel when you walk into a branded office, store or event.
After relocating to Hong Kong in 2012, my interest in our relationship with the spaces we inhabit intensified. Living in one of the most densely populated cities in the world, I realised the need to bring greater wellness into the places I spent my time.
In a city where people live and work in towers, having little contact with the natural daily rhythms of nature – such as the sequence of daylight to darkness – stress and anxiety levels can be high.
The wellness of a space reflects the wellness of those inhabiting it
Living a hectic urban life myself, I recognised the value of my own personal space. It wasn’t simply about how it looked: it was about how the layout functioned to support my daily life, about the emotional value of the contents, and how it felt to spend time there. I needed space in which I felt grounded and relaxed, where I felt comfortable to be with others, and to be alone.
I believe that restoring balance to a space re-connects people to themselves, and to each other
The spaces in which we spend most of our time – our working and living spaces – are the places in which we need to be able to restore and re-balance our energy, to re-connect with ourselves so that we can feel mentally, physically and emotionally well.
