There is a holistic connection between environment and behavior.

I lived so many decades not understanding why I didn’t seem to “fit” in, why my feelings about things and people had such depth and  why I needed so much time in a quiet environment, or experiencing nature. Five years ago, I stumbled upon a movie about Highly Sensitive People, HSP’s as they are called, and realized that I was one. I cried! I had a place in this world, with at least 20% of the population.  It was as if a huge boulder had been lifted from my spirit. I am also an empath, which explains my dogged determination to bring “a peaceful space” into existence. Recently, a friend of mine sent me a video by Dr. Judith Orloff, psychiatrist and empath, and it all became clear!!!  She talked about the need for empaths to have quiet spaces for refuge and renewal. And there it was – the raison dêtre (Reason for being – the sole or ultimate purpose of something or someone).

I have always been interested in the connection between contemplative practice and interior design. I am intrigued by the potential in that connection for personal transformation, inner peace and happiness. I continue to experience the significance of this connection in my own journey toward “bliss-filled” living and have spent years researching the subtle connections between lifestyle, behavior, and serenity rooms as anchors for well-being. I call this approach serenity design.” – Diane Pruitt, Founder
