GOLD NOTES

NUGGETS FROM THE WORLD OF RESIDENTIAL DESIGN
Why You Might Want Air Fryer Capability

Air fryers are probably the hottest — no pun intended — home-related gift right now. It’s estimated that close to 40 percent of American homes have one. That’s good news! It means that people are looking for healthier ways to enjoy their favorite foods. I’m not a big fried food fan myself, so I haven’t bought myself one. If you’re looking for a way to enjoy fried chicken or French fries with less fat, air frying capability is a definite plus. There are numerous ways to get it, including countertop appliances and larger purchases, which I share in my latest Forbes.com piece, along with related costs. There’s even a freebie that thousands of folks just got word about. Are you one of them? You can read all of the air fryer insights here.

NEW FREEBIE!

It’s the time of year when we all look to enhance our health with new fitness goals. Especially this year, when so many have spent the last 15 months cooped up. Maybe you’re planning to run your first — or fastest — 5K. Maybe you’re going to bag your highest peak this summer. Whatever you’re planning, your home can support or sabotage your fitness goals. I created this new FREE download to help you get there with some room by room wellness by design tips.

Clubhouse Update

There are new sessions scheduled (and planned) for my Wellness Wednesdays club on the Clubhouse app. These will be scheduled for 4 PM Eastern/1 PM Pacific the first and third week of the month! Here’s what’s scheduled or planned into the Fall. Hope you’ll join us for one or more. In case you can’t make it, I’ll be sharing links to the recordings afterward, as you’ll see below.

Save the Date! 

I’m going to be a presenter at the San Diego Union-Tribune‘s 2021 Festival of Books on Saturday, August 21. I love this event and am excited to be invited to share tips on creating a healthy work from home space! I’ll let you know when my time slot has been confirmed. This event will be virtual again, so you don’t even have to leave your home to participate.

TRADE BUZZ

Here are some nuggets for my colleagues in the design and remodeling industries:

  • The next monthly KB Designers Network Clubhouse wellness conversation is scheduled for Thursday, July 8 at 4:30 pm Pacific/7:30 pm Eastern. The topic will be luxury spaces with my dearest friend and trade show “husband” Dean Larkin, AIA as our special guest. Dean is a Los Angeles-based high end architect and one of my go-to guys on luxury trends! Here’s a link to the event. If you’re not yet on Clubhouse, that link will help you sign up faster. You can also add the event to your smart phone’s calendar that way. This is one of his gorgeous Hollywood Hills bathroom projects!
