Design Psychology Ideas for Joyful Living
Jeanette Joy Fisher
Because psychologists relate
true happiness to joyous occurrences happening
frequently, decorate your home to promote everyday
When people rate their happiness, it is the ratio of
pleasant to unpleasant emotions and experiences that
count. These happy experiences may be simple
pleasurable, everyday happenings, not always grand
Interior Design Psychology, a new method for
residential interior and exterior design starts with
planning spaces to support emotional well-being. Homes
decorated to support desired emotions create happy
spaces for joyful living.
Interior Design Psychology Ideas for Pleasure
- A tea table in the Main
Bedroom provides an intimate space for conversation or
- A reading nook provides
a quiet space for escape.
- A game table provides a place
for playing together.
- A meandering pathway in
the garden provides an enticement to stroll.
- A garden bed provides the
perfect place for relaxing and leisurely afternoon
I mean a real bed, not a flower
bed, although you need flowers too!
Let your imagination flow freely, enjoy the process, and
focus on your goal of providing pleasurable daily
moments at your home.
Joy to you!
