At Sacred Spaces, living in harmony stems from blending design with functionality. Our philosophy emphasizes that our surroundings influence our mood, mental state, and well-being, allowing us to create spaces that foster creativity, tranquillity, and joy using elements, colour theory, and space planning.

Inspired by nature, we apply Feng Shui principles to design spaces that meet clients’ needs. Our modern minimalist approach ensures aesthetic bliss and functionality, integrating bespoke pieces with cherished possessions.

Our practice is defined by four pillars:

  • Intentional - Focus on living aligned with nature/Feng Shui, which we use a specific personality quiz
  • Empowering - Personalized curation process that clients are fully engaged in
  • Luxurious - Premium quality finishes
  • Soulful - Harmonious sanctuaries that reflect our clients’ true essence

These four pillars support a foundation for a pleasurable design process and yield results that create genuine harmony and balance in our clients' lives, enhancing their overall wellbeing. By adhering to these principles, we ensure that our designs go beyond mere aesthetics to positively impact the daily experiences of those who inhabit the spaces we create.

What challenges did the platform help overcome in a most recent project? Could you tell us about it?

Programa helps us keep everything organized in one place. Previously we were using several programs to do what Programa is doing for us. This helps us simplify our systems and keeps all our projects organized so we have all the details in one place.

Using many different programs can get messy, and some things can fall through the cracks, but with Programa, our team can keep all the information in one place.

Sharing live links to our designs with clients eliminates the need to send bulky PDFs via email. This not only saves time but also ensures that everyone is viewing the most up-to-date version of the design.
