At Joyful Family Spaces, our mission is to create home environments that connect people to nature and its rhythms. Just a few minutes in nature each day can reduce stress, increase creativity and deepen focus. Since we spend the majority of our lives indoors, it’s essential that we find ways to design our homes, gardens, communities and workplaces to both connect us to the natural world around us and bring elements of nature inside.

Humans are part of nature, not separate from it so our design ethics consider human needs in relationship with the health of the planet. With each design decision, we evaluate how we can meet our goals without harming or depleting the earth’s resources and we seek materials that are healthy for both people and the environment.  

Our holistic design process integrates biophilic design, ecological design or permaculture, and feng shui to create nature-aligned homes that foster connection to the healing, stress-relieving power of nature.


Nature feeds our souls and brings us joy.
