According to New York-based interior designer, life coach and meditation teacher Joshua Smith, “When your home is your sanctuary, there’s a big exhale when you walk through that front door. It nourishes your spirit, inspires your mind, and enhances your connection to yourself, your loved ones and the divine, however you might define that.”
The fifteen private residences in this book can all be called “sanctuaries” because they all seek to support and protect the well-being of their owners, families and guests. Everyone needs a happy place, a space to relax, unwind, and let the worries of everyday life melt away. Some may dream of white-sand beaches, while others may prefer cozy mountain chalets or a meditative, decluttered wabi-sabi interior in a cosmopolitan setting.
