As we are 'sheltering in place' and/or working from home, our home environment has become even more important in terms of our health-mental & physical-and a place where we work, educate & entertain ourselves on a 24/7 basis. Creating and designing an environment that supports us through these unprecedented & challenging times, while still maintaining a sense of normalcy is key to getting through the next month(s).
