At Health & Home, our dream is to transform homes into healthy & beautiful spaces, uplift & celebrate the voices and stories of others, and help everyone attain the healthy living space that they deserve.
It’s no secret that home renovations can be expensive, but there’s something else that’s even more expensive – doctor appointments, prescription medications, medical supplies, transportation, counseling, health treatments, and more. The list of costs goes on and on.
A healthy home could be just what that person needs to reach their goals, manage their symptoms, improve their mental and physical health, and live a healthier, happier life. However, between rising healthcare costs and the demands of being a full-time patient, home design and renovation services can be difficult or impossible to access. Nobody should have to choose between getting medical care and living in a healthy space.
That’s where Health & Home’s: Homes & Hope Program comes in. This is how we live out our commitment to accessibility and advocacy, and get help to the people who truly need it the most.
When a person is nominated for a healthy home transformation, we’ll reach out and get to know their story. We’ll get to know them and their unique situation, needs, goals, likes, and dislikes. Then, we’ll redesign their space – entirely centered around the person/family and their health and wellness. With the help of incredible donors, partners, volunteers, and sponsors, we’ll transform the person’s space at no cost to them.
Finally (and only with the person’s enthusiastic consent), we’ll create a series of YouTube videos documenting the process, with the purpose of creating awareness and giving the person a platform to share their story, share the ways we designed the space to help them and hopefully make that information accessible to others dealing with similar issues so they can do it themselves too.
Health & Home is always committed to acting with empowerment and empathy when we uplift and amplify the voices of others, and we will only share what the person is ready and willing to share and always doing so with the heart to help others in similar situations by sharing it in this way.
WHY THE NATURE VIDEOS ON AN INTERIOR DESIGN SITE?
At Health & Home, we take every opportunity to pull inspiration from nature. The planet that we all call home is effortlessly picturesque. The colors and aesthetics of nature are perfect by design; they are the original classic, and they’ll never go out of style. What’s more is that, by capturing and imitating the Earth’s natural beauty, we can even influence our moods, heal our bodies and minds, and evoke particular feelings and behaviors within ourselves.
Throughout our website, we’ve intentionally chosen different nature-themed visuals on each page to arouse certain psychological responses. As you navigate our pages, take the time to be present within your mind and draw attention to how each page makes you feel. The purpose of this is to demonstrate how making intentional design choices rooted in biology and psychology can have a profound impact. You can click to expand the side tabs on each page to discover the science behind what we’ve chosen.

The color blue is exceptionally soothing, which may be attributed to its association with the ocean. Blue brings forth feelings of calmness, peace, serenity, and tranquility. It improves problem-solving and decision-making. It exudes a calm, confident presence, with notes of authority and loyalty. Blue promotes trust and dependability while boosting productivity. Views of the ocean and being by the sea have been shown to have really significant effects on both physical and mental health. Watching the blue waves of the ocean can actually alter brain wave frequency to induce a relaxed, meditative state. The ocean has therapeutic and psychologically restorative properties that reduce stress, promote gratitude, and offer perspective. Being by the sea may also result in getting better sleep, so all of these positive effects would make blue and ocean-inspired design a marvelous choice for the bedroom. We thought the blue waves of the ocean was the best selection to feature on our “work with us” page, because we hope that you will feel a sense of peace and confidence while looking through our services, and that you’ll find us trustworthy, dependable, and loyal.
