"Happiness is an angel with a serious face."

~Amadeo Modigliani



Wellbeing - Being Well - is serious and foundational. Happiness and feeling good go hand-in-hand.


I truly believe that architecture, design, art and color have amazing power at the energetic level to positively impact our moods and enhance our sense of well-being. 


Imagine telling better visual stories that enhance the space and elevate the guest/visitor experience on the mental, emotional and spiritual levels.


My mission is to educate, inspire, and create more happiness and well-being around the globe! I believe that information - in its various forms of enlightenment - creates awareness and empowerment, which leads to positive transformation and evolution.

Celebrate the powerful emotional impact of design and fine art.

Provide positive intellectual symbolic influence.

Offer energetic and colorful vibrations to uplift the human spirit.

I look forward to working with you.

I believe the connection between our human bodies, our spiritual souls, and our built environment is crucial. The information we receive vibrationally, visually, and functionally through the architectural and visual language needs to uplift us and support our sense of Wellbeing.

Providing education, information and understanding to all involved is empowering and elevates the value and importance of design.


Patricia Wilson joined a small Pittsburgh design studio at the age of 19 and fell in love with interior design when she was asked to poché a drawing. Fueled by her passion for meaningful and purposeful design, her three-plus decades of experience focus on the joy of Hospitality. Her entrepreneurial spirit led her to found her small studio in 2000, which led to many happy consulting opportunities. Today, her broader perspective includes not only interior design but also textile and surface pattern design. She firmly believes in the critical importance of vision and strategy behind the design concept as a win-win for all. Patricia creates awareness by writing about the value of great design and the importance color in our daily lives for the local and global reach. She received her BFA in Design and Minor in Architecture from Carnegie Mellon.

you have a moral issue to spread quality in our environment."
