Get Healthy at Home, my workbook that helps you create the home that supports a healthier home life!
How your home looks is an important part of living well with chronic pain, but just like you, there is more to your home than looks alone.
A beautiful room has all the power of the ocean. It can elevate your mood, inspire healthy habits and more. If you take nothing else from COVID, give your home the help it needs so it can be a healthy foundation for you.
This is a great place to get your healthy home on.
A beautiful, functional home. A healthy, balanced lifestyle. All it takes is time and money and even then there are no guarantees that you'll love the changes, right?
What if I told you that there is a way to ensure your home supports and inspires you to live a healthier life, now and in the future years ? I understand your unique challenges because I've been diagnosed with six degenerative conditions myself including osteopenia and osteoarthritis.
When you read my books or blog, take my design course or work with me in one-on-one strategy sessions I show you how to create floor plans for stability; how to choose furniture and fixtures for comfort and beauty (who says one must negate the other!); how to choose soothing colors and textures; and fill you in on the newest appliances, tools and devices that make your life so much easier.
And best of all, you will 100 percent without-a-doubt love it because we work together with your look, your lifestyle, and my trained eye. Boom.
Riley and Me
Work with me in my one on one strategy sessions. We'll make one formidable design team, and your joints will thank you.
Seeing women love their homes means the world to me! In these strategy sessions and in my virtual design course I show you how to get the soothing, restful look you want for your home.
But there's something more I'll show you. And that's how to create a healthier lifestyle. If your home weighs you down or doesn't function well, or if it's still not that attractive after all your efforts, let's talk about ways to transform it.
If your home isn't supporting you the way it is now, let me ask you.
Are you ready for a cool change?
Which one ?
A little help.
Get solid answers to your three biggest design challenges. The Micro Design Strategy Session saves frustration from buying the wrong thing and then having to live with it for the next ten years, or putting a ton of effort into choosing something and then having to replace it. And we work with what you have so there's never that "new stuff makin' old stuff look even older" business.
A lotta help.
There is a ton of design game in this room sized package. I give you the design foundation you need to turn your dream home into a reality by creating a blueprint to get you there plus three full hours of one one one support and my written assessment to guide you through implementation. One room. One design plan. Your look, lifestyle and budget. These are my Full Design Strategy Sessions and they come with in depth support materials, a list of my favorite resources, instructions on measuring and photographing and more.
Let's work together... we'll make one formidable design team.
Take the design course.
How many people have approached me to come to their home and show them how to decorate! I'm flattered and now I can... via Zoom or Skype! In my 6 Week Virtual Design Course you learn the principals of interior design as it pertains to your project. Because do you really want to know about soffits and support beams? Learn how to design the room of your choice while we work together as a team. Oh so satisfying, and a ton of fun.
Christian and me
Shiree was instrumental in my stunning, and so comfortable living room design. She was able to communicate with me effectively helping me to make decisions that felt were all mine, guiding my choices into best possible interior style. Without her guidance I would have erred into buying the wrong sofa in the wrong color and size again. Shiree has an incredible, innate sense of proportion and beauty. Everyone who comes to my home, now heads to my living room and feel comfortable hanging out in there.
Design help, wellness and a little woo woo thrown in for good measure.
3 life changing little downloads. And they're all yours!
When I was a kid we moved a lot. One of the ways I set down roots was to immediately unpack and decorate my room.
Looking back, my childhood influences my philosophies about your home supporting you and making wellness a priority in your home from organic foods, to the cleaning products you use, to the restful design schemes and colors we'll choose for your home.
When I write articles and blogs for women with arthritis or other types of chronic pain I address three main topics: how to create a home that is not only pretty but also one that supports you physically and emotionally. I write about wellness and the multi faceted approach I've adopted in my own life. And I talk about mindset tools, because any change even if it's an improvement requires growth and an opening of the mind to new ways.
Download all three books and put these principals into action so you will get real results for your home, wellness practices and personal growth.
I have a lovely home in the mountains up above snow level and I wanted to update my living room. I had followed Shiree's bi-weekly design columns in the newspaper and called her for help. I wanted to work with several of my existing furniture pieces and accessories and she got my style right away. I love the new sofa, chair, loveseat and window treatments and I was pleased how Shiree incorporated my other items into the overall scheme.
SANS THE TIPSY.
BECAUSE IF IT DOESN'T TASTE PRETTY SPECTACULAR, NO ONE WILL DRINK IT.
Start with a Breville Compact Juice Fountain. The way to make green juice taste delicious is by including lime and an apple. Lemon is good too, but it has a whole different energy. This green juice is so delicious, it's no hardship to drink it every day.
Outer leaves of one head romaine
2 large lacinto kale leaves, stems removed
1/2 large cucumber
1 red apple, with skin
1/3 bundle cilantro
1/2 lime or lemon, with skin
Makes one 2 ounce glass. Double the recipe and freeze half of it for the following day. (This is a juice, not a smoothie).
Drink immediately or freeze. Green juice should be consumed alone, at least half an hour prior to your first meal of the day.
We have worked with Shiree on two occasions with paint color selection, many custom window treatments and new area rugs and each time found the experience to be a great one. She is professional, reliable and creative and even found a way to bring our different design styles into a happy medium. We look forward to working with her again.
