Can intentional design techniques and an enhanced connection to nature be the prescription needed to heal mind, body, and soul?
Our current modern world is filled with discomfort, disease, and disconnection as people have moved indoors away from the healing properties of nature. Finding our way back to health, happiness, and wellness may include a home plan intentionally designed with biophilia in mind.
The word biophilia is the combination of two Greek words: “life” (bio) and “love” (philia). It literally translates to love of life.
This love of life is an inherent personality trait that ALL humans possess as a result of evolutionary biology and psychology.
Black, white, and grey are shades referred to as achromatic, which literally means "without color".
These non-colors have been loved by the home design and real estate industry, but are they really the best choices for creating a happy home?
The Science of a Happy Home: Neuroaesthetics and How Home Affects Your Mental Health
We are mentally and emotionally impacted by our surroundings, whether we consciously realize it or not. The science of neuroaesthetics helps us understand more about how we’re affected by the built environment around us. Utilizing this knowledge can help us combine useful design techniques to create homes that better support mental health and wellbeing.
Home is Where the Heart Is
Home truly is where the heart is…free to be expressed, safe to be seen, and authentically acknowledged.
In the final post of Pippin’s Inspired Life series, I share with you my heart. I introduce you to my true love and forever partner in life and in business, Wes Stearns.

What is You-Inspired Living?
Since birth we have taken inspiration from many different influencers in our lives: teachers, thought leaders, family members, coworkers, gurus and coaches of all kinds. We create our lives to be the culmination of all these different influences, hoping to build a meaningful and joyous existence, but how often do we pause and contemplate the origin of our deepest desires, the ones that come from within? What is it that YOU want most?
I am Jenny Pippin, founder of Pippin Home Designs and creator of my own inspired living. I grew up as an ordinary southern girl, working in the fields of my family’s tobacco farm. It didn’t take me long to realize I had greater gifts and so I chose to step into my power and create my own path in life, inspired by my heart’s true passion. (More on my personal story HERE!)
