GOLD NOTES

NUGGETS FROM THE WORLD OF RESIDENTIAL DESIGN
Eight Wellness Design-Inspired Pro Tips For Your Work From Home Space

Are you one of the millions of folks whose jobs went remote last year? Has your employer decided to continue having staff work from home? If so, you’re going to want to read this latest piece. (OK, even if you don’t want to, you probably should!) I interviewed two experts — one physical therapist who contributed to my book and the design director for a large architectural firm — on what they’re advising their clients. You’ll see their inputs in this article. You can also ask them your questions this afternoon (4 pm Eastern / 1 pm Pacific) in my next WELLNESS WEDNESDAYS Clubhouse conversation.
