Season 1, Episode 5 - Color Theory with Interior Designer Rhea Mader

Join me for this delightful conversation with interior designer Rhea Mader, as we learn about how colors can affect our mood, our behaviors, and our well being. Also, I talk about a little experiment I did with our 5 year old involving switching placemats to see if I could change habits in this picky eater.

Rhea Mader is a holistic interior designer specialized in eco-friendly and evidence-based design for wellness. She is a LEED Green Associate, Certified Living in Place Professional, and an award-winning senior living and hospitality interior designer. Rhea is also the host of Rhea's Haven, a podcast about green design, aging gracefully, philanthropy, slow living, and accessible design.
