MOOD AND MEMORY AFFECTED BY YOUR HOME

Have you heard of the term 'neuroarchitecture' yet? If not, sit up and listen up. Recent research shows that our architectural environment, comprising elements such as lighting, space and layout, influences certain brain processes such as those involved in stress, emotion and memory. For example, studies show that big windows or a balcony lift our spirits and "decorating with a signed painting or one-of-a-kind sculpture... transmits a sense of authenticity and trust". I'm not sure how true these claims are, but I'm certainly not convinced "even an environment that makes our spirits soar - an incredible view, for example - tends, over time, to grow stale." Are you sure? Even with a superb seaview? No way!
