Art of Wellness: Game Changers

In our busy and overwhelmingly digital age, it’s more important than ever to design spaces with intent with wellness as a priority. Spaces within our homes have to be functional, purposeful and adaptable. Your kitchen counter may be used for meal prepping, answering emails over coffee, and entertaining your guests at a dinner party – all in the same day. In addition to smart, multi-use spaces, we’re also seeking ways to incorporate life-enhancing habits and rituals into our daily routine, such as meditation over a cup of coffee.

Join us as we bring together local women experts and influencers to explore Wellness Design – the intersection of art, architecture, interior design, and holistic wellness – over rosé at The Four Seasons. We’ll re-think spaces within the home and share our knowledge on how to incorporate healthy habits and rituals into each room.

Welcome to our virtual home! Each speaker is assigned a room and will share how they approach designing that space with intention.

- Alexis Simón from The Art of Wellness will guide you through the front door into The Living Room, where you will conceptualize your macrocosmic floor plan and provide insight into how those entering your home influence its ambience and energy.

- Mindfulness expert, Gloria Chan, will help you create The Office in a manner that promotes efficiency and keeps your mental wellness game strong.

- Award-winning International Interior Designer, Karen Kopicki, will walk you through designing The Bedroom for best sleep experience, including acoustics, air filtration, ambience, lighting and all other aspects of WELL Design using her extensive background and versatile skillset for designing custom interiors.

- Karli Kershaw, a nutritionist and wellness/yoga instructor, will share her approach to The Kitchen, which includes the physical space is designed to support a healthy morning routine to start the day off right.

- Rashanna Moss, former owner of Pure Bare, will share how she continues her commitment to holistic wellness through creating our virtual mind and body Gym. Whether you have space for an actual gym or just a few resistance band exercises in a calm space near a window, Rashanna will suggest ways to feel empowered and strong.

- Finally, Robin Emmerich will share her advice for how to designating space for art and creative exploration by creating an Art Studio, a sanctuary away from the basic wellness needs to promote each of us to level up and build, create, and design.
