“Trading Spaces” designer Genevieve Gorder is talking about using your home to improve mental health at a time when most of us are spending lots of time inside due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Home is important, she says, because “it’s where we nest and it’s where we repair, we recalibrate and reinvent so we can go out again.” She calls our homes “the cradle.”
In a video for Yahoo’s “Reset Your Mindset” campaign, she advises that “starting with home is a really great medicine.”
“Let the light in, open the windows, bring in some brighter colors to change your mood. It really is more than just psychology. It is absolutely true,” she says.
