About The Book

Design your home to optimize your healthy lifestyle with this room-by-room guide from certified kitchen designer and wellness design consultant Jamie Gold.

Residential designer Jamie Gold has spent years exploring how simple changes to things like lighting, fixtures, storage, and outdoor space can impact our health and wellness. In Wellness by Design, Gold offers a room-by-room guide to refreshing your space so that it supports your wellness journey.

Good news, it doesn’t require a yoga room and can be done in small apartments as well as large houses. This book explains how simple changes can make a huge difference in how you feel every day.

You’ll learn:
- How to maximize accessibility and organization in your kitchen for faster, healthier, and more delicious meals.

- How to optimize your home office to eliminate back, neck, and foot pain.
- How to enhance your bathroom tub and shower spaces to support fitness goals and simplify family life.
- And much more!

It’s time for your home to work as hard as you do to support your health. With the right organization and interior design, your home can help you maintain and improve your health in a variety of ways, from improving health and preventing disease to encouraging clean eating, sustainable living, safety, fitness, serenity, and joy.

Whether you’re building your dream home or decorating your new rental, this book will help you keep your fitness goals and stay on track for a long and healthy life.
