Stephanie Parisi Studio has recently launched thier new Wellness Design Division, which is headed by Jennifer York, RN, a doctoral nursing student at Point Loma Nazarene University with more than 20 years of experience as a practitioner in natural and integrative medicine and 15 years of experience in sustainable design. Her educational experience is backed by a MS degree in Regenerative Studies from Cal Poly Pomona, a MS in Nursing Education from United States University, and a BS in Herbal Sciences from Bastyr University.
In her position York will assess, develop, and establish technologies with measurable effects on wellness and well being to be incorporated into the Paris’s wellness-based product lines. According to York, “Our homes are more than places to eat and sleep. They are extensions of our lifestyles helping to reduce stress and improve our overall well-being.” York’s extensive research helps to create input into the studio’s design aesthetics, resulting in a handbook of sorts with evidence-based guidelines as to how we can create healthful living elements in our homes, added interior designer Stephanie Parisi. Creating homes that support well-being is an important, emerging trend for 2023. Our studio sets itself apart from others with its dedication to creating beautifully designed spaces which have the added benefit of supporting our wellbeing.
