London-based Shalini Misra is an architect, interior designer and founder of her eponymous international design studio. Winner of countless design industry awards, Shalini features in the top 100 designer lists of Architectural Digest India, House & Garden and LuxDeco. She serves as a highly respected authority on design for various boards and committees within the industry, including the South Asian Acquisition Committee at Tate and the Advisory Board of KLC School of Design. Style-wise, each of her projects is notably individual, adorned with incredible art and supreme craftsmanship, and formed by the diverse lifestyles of her international clientele.

It is her passion for wellness in design, however, that I am most curious about and, in this episode, I caught up with the resolutely conscientious designer about just that. Listen in as we discuss why wellness should always be an intrinsic design principle and how interiors can serve as positive forces—both physically and emotionally—for their inhabitants.

Wellness is a state of complete physical, mental, social wellbeing. It's a quality or state of being healthy in body and mind, especially as a result of deliberate effort, which brings a sense of purpose. If you have a lifestyle that embraces the methods that make you feel good and you enjoy your surroundings, this will filter into every aspect of your life.

The well-being relationship between our inner selves and our external environment which surrounds us, is hugely important and fascinating. How does the space that you're in affect you? How does it make you feel? Both of these are very critical to wellness.
