NATURE INSPIRED INTERIORS

AL & Co. was founded on a love for interior design, well-being, and the belief that nature is a powerful necessity in our everyday lives.  The research available is undeniable and simply put, nature makes people happy.

I truly believe in reconnecting people with nature by delivering contemporary, innovative and engaging interior design and coaching services, with a focus on the proven benefits of biophilic design.

With over 20 years’ experience in luxury interior design, hospitality, corporate and commercial projects, I change lifestyles and environments by placing health, well-being, and our connection to the natural environment at the heart of everything I do.

 

What is biophilic design?

Glad you asked! It’s a way of designing that brings the natural world into your space, so you can truly connect to nature and feel the benefits that connection provides.

I can say from both experience and research, biophilia influences the moment-to-moment physical and sensory elements of life. It impacts our emotions, health, overall feelings and well-being.

My goal with this website is to create an educational platform to shine a light on this better, more natural way of living. Nature is the best designer!

WELLNESS DESIGN

From balanced home & workplace design, to specialized retreat experiences — we design with regenerative wellness in mind. We carefully select building materials and design space layouts to support human and planetary health, going beyond rating systems for green or healthy design.

People today spend 90% of their time indoors. We aim to bring the wellness of the outdoors inside, for you and your health. Our designs are scientifically proven to promote wellbeing!

In fact, neuroscientists and microbiologists can name the changes in cognitive behavior and brain chemistry that many of us feel after communing with nature. As research continues to establish the positive advantages of wellness living, we build our practice upon the benefits of natural materials and textures that nourish a space, positive rituals that guide our daily activities, and elements that delight the senses.
