Know Your Internal Self
INTROVERTS | EMPATHS | HIGHLY SENSITIVE
I'm QuianaRose, and I'm on a never-ending quest to calm down.
I've spoken to and observed 100s of Internal individuals throughout my life, and we are constantly seeking comfort where it is nowhere to be found.
That's because all of interior design’s principles and implementation focus on social interaction and Universal Design to accommodate the majority versus the individual.
I know that Internal individuals are drawn to a similar set of values that manifest a great sense of self, which in turn allows them to relax and recharge. I create elevated and luxurious interior environments that nurture, inspire, & rejuvenate.
I approach interior design by accommodating your emotional, spiritual, and sensory needs as an Internal person. My principles of P.E.A.C.E. combine years of study & work in psychology, human behavior, ergonomics, ADA needs, and evidence-based interior design.
Let's talk about the elements of P.E.A.C.E.
This is about your personal space. As one of The Internal, being able to relocate when necessary or compartmentalize your attention in a more focused way is essential. This allows The Internal person to be their most productive and efficient. Being alone is not just for recharging. It is a form of recreation. It is a way for you to be honest, responsive, and involved with your own well being.
We believe that an inward-thinking person really equates to a contemplative person. They are attentive listeners. Attainment of knowledge is not sufficient for The Internal. It's about consumption. It's about making information personal and sustainable prior to judgment. Regular access to and ways of analyzing their surroundings and thoughts are major sources of self-care for the Internal.
The Internal experience a great deal of prejudice. You may have been told that your natural traits are anti-social, fictional, inconvenient, or uncaring. Maybe you've gone through early phases of seeking acceptance from others, eventually finding it in yourself, and lastly realizing acceptance does not need to be sought. The Internal will only willingly enjoy an environment that allows them to be their unconventional self.
Sensory overwhelm is a significant concern for the introverted, empathic, and highly sensitive. This is not about physical comfort only but includes a psychological and experiential environment in which to relieve social stress, increase self-awareness, and induce relaxation. Mental stability and low stimulation are the prime goals in creating a comfortable atmosphere for The Internal.
Art as a way of unique expression is an important resource for developing stimulating and healing surroundings. Providing The Internal with means to indulge their personal freedoms and individuality will create a place of safety and retreat. The goal is to eliminate shame and reward unique interests.
