What You'll Discover In The Beyond Spaces Course

Session 1 - Intro to Holistic Interior Design

In week 1 we’ll start with some introductions and icebreakers. It’s an opportunity to get to know each other so we can create a safe, open, comfortable, and relaxed environment to learn and commune.

After a 2-minute guided meditation to help ground and center us, Gala will explain:

This first session helps you begin changing the way you think about interior design and opens your mind to the tremendous impact that the spaces we create have on people, and ourselves.

Our Beyond Spaces methodology consists of 12 tenets that can be applied to a project. The tenets take the entire client (mind + body + soul) into consideration AND guide us towards creating spaces that are in right relationship with Mother Nature.

This design approach inspires designers, opening up a whole new way to approach projects and life.

Session 2 - The Beyond Spaces Methodology: In the Flow

Feng Shui + The Language of Space

In this session we will focus solely on some Feng Shui basics that will give us a broader understanding of how our design choices impact clients.

Feng Shui and the Language of Space  The ancient practice of Feng Shui provides a philosophy for understanding the physical environment, what it’s reflecting back to you and how to create spaces that are supportive instead of draining. 

By understanding some of the basic tenets of this practice you will acquire the tools needed to supercharge spaces for clients so that they’re not only beautiful, but they help your clients to thrive.

Session 3 - The Beyond Spaces Methodology: Connect to Nature

In this session we will cover four different topics relating to natural elements and their effects on people:

EMF's + Geopathic Abnormalities

Biophilia- Bringing Nature into clients’ spaces is paramount for well-being now that the majority of people live in cities with minimal access to Nature.

Light Understand the connection between natural light and our moods as well as best specification practices for client well-being.

Air- Sometimes as designers, how we impact air quality for a client can be limited. In this section, we’ll discuss some things you can do and what to be aware of.

EMF’s + Geopathic Abnormalities- Learn and understand what natural and man-made EMFs are, what their impact is on client health, and how to best advise clients on how to avoid them.

Session 4 - The Beyond Spaces Methodology: Function of Space

In this session, we will cover three more tenets of Holistic Interior Design:

Creating Sanctuary in space
Creating spaces that invite sociability and community
The existing energy in spaces and why it matters

Sociability + Community Presently, one of the global population’s biggest pandemics is loneliness. Understand some of the ways that you can help design spaces to better support socialization + community.

The Importance of Creating Sanctuary- Why bringing ‘Sanctuary’ talk up with clients is paramount to their well-being, and how it helps you create life-changing spaces for them.

Energy- Understand why you may feel a certain way when you walk into a client’s space and what you can do to reset the energy in the space with them so that they have a deeper sense of peace in their space.

Session 5 - The Beyond Spaces Methodology: Specifying Mindfully

In this session, we will cover the final four topics, relating to finishes and decor chosen for a space:

The power of color
Specifying for sustainability
The basics of healthy materials

Color Get a better understanding of the impact that different colors have on clients’ mood and productivity levels and learn to be intentional when choosing paint colors for clients.

Sustainability- Understanding and specifying sustainable materials can be overwhelming for designers. In this section, Gala shares some easy ways you can begin incorporating this into your design practice immediately.

Healthy Materials- Know the most important rooms in which to specify these and why.

Less Is More- Part of being in alignment with Mother Nature is all about using just what is needed. Understand how much of an impact you can make when applying this mindset to your projects.
