Designing a Space for Your Identity and Happiness
Becky LaFranchi, Communication and Interior Design Manager of IKEA, is responsible for making a better everyday life for people through space and design. At PSFK 2015, LaFranchi explains how and why our homes make us happier, and offers tips for designing a space that best represents your identity.
The ability to create happiness in your own space comes from a synergy of order, sense and identity. An orderly home creates room to partake in the rituals that we love; the five senses can connect us to our home on a visceral level; our individual fingerprint shows off and acknowledges our spirit. Since our home is a sacred space for ourselves, our activities and our guests, these internal design elements combined will give us a greater sense of self.
