How intentional design can transform your home and life with Natalie Walton
DO YOU WANT YOUR HOME TO BE A SPACE YOU ENJOY COMING HOME TO?
A change of pace today. We’re speaking to Natalie Walton – interior stylist, designer and author – who writes and shares about slow, intentional living.
IN THIS PODCAST WE ARE TALKING ABOUT
As a former journalist and deputy editor of Real Living, Natalie is interested in understanding how our environments shape our lives. She creates genuine and atmospheric interiors, underwritten with a theme that infuses all of her work – connecting with what’s important to you.
One of Natalie’s newest books, Still – The Slow Home, came about from the sheer overwhelm Natalie experienced when exploring all the options of how to live and create a sustainable life and home.
In this episode, Natalie explains what makes a slow home, unpacking the guiding principles that she developed in alignment with the slow food movement – sustainable, local, organic and whole.
Natalie takes us through the most important things to consider when you’re designing and decorating a home, including your intention for the space, your values and priortising what’s important to you.
She also reassures us that when you’re looking to do things in a more sustainable way, it’s not about doing things perfectly, but rather trying to make better choices.
We discuss what it is about those spaces that energise us, and the ways you can approach and design your home in order to make it a space that you enjoy coming home to.
This was such a beautiful exploration of what makes up a slow, considered, thoughtful and meaningful home. Whether you’re designing a space for others to enjoy, or your own forever home, you’ll find this an inspiring guide to designing and living with intention.
