So people no longer have to live in a Bleak Space without a sense of Well-being.

We are Product Designers, Artists, and Decorators specializing in environmental design for cognitive impairment and corporate branding. As such, we create biophilic spaces and salutogenic designs using the Age-old Importance of Art in Architecture for a sense of Well-being.

The benefits of working with us are:

Help to get the Aged Care 5 Star Rating: The Government is backing the Australian Royal Commission into Aged Care and the NCC22 (National Construction Code) recommendations on improvements to energy efficiency and livability. With funding, and our expertise and unique artful products updating your environmental design, you will save your staff time, improve theirs and your residents’ experience and leap toward your 5 Star Rating.

Experience since 2008: Conversations matter: Arcare Care, Opal Aged Care, Southern Cross Care, Coolibah Aged Care, Queensland Health, St Basils, Regis Aged Care, St Vincents Care, CPSM Care, Ramsay Health Care, Goodwin Aged Care, Australian Unity, Kopwa Aged Care and Blue Care.

Dementia Training: Wicking MOOK Certified. Enrolled in Dementia Training Australia. Listening to podcasts: The Dementia Podcast, Shaping Dementia Environments, The Model Health Show, The Genius Life by Max Lugavere and more. Armed with industry education, our aim is to switch from people being victims of poor design to making their own decisions through strengths-based environmental design.

Trained in Interior Decorating and Colour Psychology:  The psychology of spaces ends with its Interior Decor.  Deep knowledge of decorating can make oversized spaces feel intimate, give long hallways clearer landmarks, make dining rooms not so lonely, provide interaction outdoors instead of just racetracks, help people find their room when every door is the same-or transform problems into art galleries like our Cupboard Door Diversions.

Design Industry recognised: In 2022 we were Finalist after being nominated by The interior Designers Association for the HIA Building Women’s Awards for Professional Women in the Aged Care and Dementia space. 

Thought Leadership based on science:   The View Through a Window May Influence Recovery From Surgery AKA Room with a View Study which correlates with Awe Theory, proved that a view of beauty and/or art or nature increases empathy- which is important to communal living, helps patients manage pain and anxiety. While being in nature is best, scientists now know that the powerful emotion of Awe can release positive endorphins and then dopamine in the brain which helps to ease depression.

Changing reactions to environments: Our knowledge and products like dementia door disguises help providers to stop nursing home elopement, keep residents safe, and reduce exit door stress. Similarly, our Outdoor Murals help turn dull outdoor spaces into retreats for Aged Care and NDIS participants. Humans are 90% visual. So, it is sensible to use visual tools to imbue positive psychology into the built environment as final decorative touches expressive the Interior Design and Architectural style.

Thought leadership in future Aged Care Design: In 2023 Sharron Tancred was invited to collaborate with leading Aged Care architects, landscape designers and a top dementia expert in the Australian government’s, “Reimaging Where We Live Design Ideas Competition,” testing the draft of the National Aged Care Design Principles and Guidelines. Resulting in the architects calling our project ”Ärt House”. Aged Care providers looking for fresh, evidence-based architectural ideas and dementia-enabling design can rely on Tailored Artworks for thought leadership.
