Helen & Co. specializes in creating spaces that nurture wellbeing. Helen Austen has combined her background as a counselor and her decade of experience as a professional organizer with her eye for interior design to create beautiful spaces that foster a higher quality of life.
Helen Austen developed 7 design standards that help improve the impact your spaces have on your everyday living.
Helen & Co.’s Wellbeing Design Standards:
Organized– Create spaces that are organized and designed for high function based on your unique needs, tendencies, and preferences.
Nudge Architecture & Design– Nudge architecture is a term adopted from environmental psychology and it acknowledges that you can create spaces that have cues to encourage healthy behavior and habits with ease. We incorporate this element into all our design and organizing projects.
Nature & Lighting– Create opportunities to connect to nature and natural light.
Hobbies & Interests: Identify your personal interests and create spaces that help you to engage in them with ease.
Create Sleep Sanctuaries: Sleep is the foundation of a healthy lifestyle and we account for how factors such as noise, light, temperature, and the quality of your mattress influence sleep.
Non-Toxic– When available, we can offer options that are non-toxic or low VOC, including renewable, waste-reducing, energy-efficient, natural/organic, and locally sourced materials.
Living in Place– When applicable, we design homes that can grow and age with you. These spaces allow you to grow and evolve comfortably in your home throughout your lifetime.
