The New Mindful Home: garden office wellbeing


As we emerge into spring and out of lockdown, this could be a good time for you to assess how you decorate your (new?) garden office. The New Mindful Home by stylist and writer Joanna Thornhill is, as the title suggests, aimed at improving your emotional wellbeing by creating a home that calms and supports you. However, it's also a useful (and not too massive) guide to creating all kinds of supportive room layouts, with plenty of excellent colour illustrations and a useful resources section to track down the things you like the look of.

So there are useful chapters on 'Creating a sanctuary' which looks at how to use colour and adapt your room depending on your personality type, 'Mindful objects', and generally organising your space. Throughout, there's a welcome emphasis on responsible consumerism and planet-friendly materials - indeed there's an entire chapter on 'Becoming biophilic' which will be of particular interest to garden-based shedworkers. If you're wondering how to make your garden office both a nicer spot and more conducive to work in, this is a great starting point.
