48 Techniques to Boost Your Creativity at Home, According to Science
Creativity isn't all in your head. Sometimes it's in what's around you--especially when you're at home.

For over twenty years, scientists have been discovering connections between our physical surroundings and the creative mind. Written by a noted architect, My Creative Space is the first book to turn this rich trove of psychological research into practical techniques for shaping a home that will boost your creativity.

Here's a sampling of the techniques you'll learn about:

  • Which colors lead to peak creative performance
  • How furniture affects idea flow
  • Pros and cons of messy versus neat environments
  • Optimal lighting and noise levels for achieving insights
  • How memorabilia can break creative logjams
  • Why ceiling height matters
  • Which scents improve creative problem solving
  • And more

  • Illustrating the book's 48 techniques are over 200 high-quality photos of interiors from around the world, many the work of top-tier architects, designers, and creatives.

    Whether you pursue creativity for pleasure or profit, whether you're a writer, entrepreneur, work in a creative industry, or simply enjoy doing creative things, this book will help you do them better. No prior expertise in design psychology required!
