What is Interior Psychology?
Interior Psychology is a system that identifies where psychological patterns may exist in your space. It addresses dynamics within your relationships, patterns that may have held you back to stress triggers living in your space.
Interior Psychology offers recommendations to build a space that has positive affect on many areas of your life, while connecting you to the areas in your life that bring you the most happiness.
This uniquely profound consultation can be a stand alone session to aquaire ideas and awareness or become the back-bone to your interior design, feng shui or home refresh.
Every client’s need, sensibility, and desires are different. We may begin with an opportunity to consider:
- What does your space say about you as an individual, couple, family or corporate team?
- How may your space be affecting your inner world of thoughts and emotions?
- How do you sleep in your space?
- How does your space align with who you are today?
- What do you want your space to do for you?
- What are your life, personal, career and lifestyle goals?
- How do you wish to be seen?
KIM COLWELL| interior psychology bio
Kim’s life long study of the psychology of space began under the tutelage of her mother, Melinda Joy Miller, a sensory-motor integrative therapist who worked with patients in a state hospital to shift their environment to impart a shift in their developmental process. With extensive study in psychology to understand human dynamics, a theater degree from NYU Tisch which delved into the study of body language set design to examine space through the lens of a character. Kim has extended her study include classes with a environmental psychologist Dr Toby Isreal and biophilic design – the study of how nature effects our mental and emotional state. This “Interior Psychology” service was built upon layers of awareness to support her client’s personal needs in more meaningful ways.
CASE STUDY | design for depression
My client had been through a trauma from the loss of her husband and son. She felt stuck in her life and was surrounded by an environment that was cluttered with an excess of belongings that defined painful memories. Her decor had never fully reflected who she was. These aspects had a profound effect on her mental state and quality of life.
My training in interior therapy allowed me to spot emotional clutter throughout her home. It becomes an important distinction to know if the space is set up in a way that it contributes to one’s depression or if the depression has manifested within one’s space. If the home was the contributing factor, then we needed to change the sensibility of the home. However, if the depression was the promoting factor, then we would know the power of our sensibilities on our environment. In other words, if depression can change a room’s dynamics, other factors can reshape it also.
The feel of the space was dark and stagnate. I began by exploring her personal goals and life patterns, while figuring out how light and air could circulate better throughout the space and creating a floorpan that would support more connectivity.
This was my first interior design project many years ago. It was incredibly meaningful to have her since speak about her transformation at one of my talks. I am grateful to be part of her journey.
