What’s That Smell? The Unseen World of Air
During this 30-minute presentation science-based evidence outlining the value and importance of improved indoor air quality will be discussed. Numerous statistics and research show how IAQ solutions can impact the health and wellbeing of the occupants of a building including residential homes. As more solutions become available it is important to understand the role various filtration and purification systems play and what are the best options for our clients. Indoor air quality plays a significant role in our health and well-being and it is our goal to bring more clarity to how renovators, designers and building influencers can guide clients to making choices of the best solutions for their space.
Natalia Pierce WELL AP, AKBD, CLIPP is a kitchen and bath design specialist. She began her career taking classes towards an Architectural Technologist diploma and quickly realized her passion fell in between the technical and decorative side of design. It was her attention to detail and understanding of the structural and mechanical elements that made kitchen and bath design the ultimate fit.
She believes that education unlocks unlimited doors and is constantly expanding her knowledge and understanding of the key elements of great design. With her ongoing concentration in wellness and lighting design she offers progressive solutions to each project and recently earned her WELL AP certification.
Throughout her 15 year career she has been an instrumental member of her local NKBA Chapter, NKBA National Board of Directors and Chapter Leadership Committee and is currently an Ambassador for the Living In Place Institute believing in always giving back to her community. Natalia’s focus on teaching and sharing comes out in her books and presentations. She began writing, Inside Renovations, to help prepare clients for what was about to happen to their home and their lives. Renovations are temporary but can leave a lasting impact both positive or negative depending on the preparation. Her books are designed to bring clients closer to a positive experience. Inside Renovations is in process of being published and her current project, Wellness in Design, is a work in progress and will be available sometime later this year and is sure to open up many discussions of scientific support and the impact of design on our homes and environments.
