I am Ann Powell, ‘The Wellness Decorator’, founder, visionary and guiding spirit behind Home Healing Hues. A home decorating company helping through Hues. I have been an Interior Decorator, Hunter Douglas Design Consultant with Decorview Canada in the Durham Region, Kawartha Lakes and the Greater Toronto Area of Ontario for many years. I had a life and career-changing experience when my best friend was diagnosed with breast cancer. Before her journey of operations, chemo, radiation etc. began, my friend asked me to bring my colour samples over and help her select a new colour for her family room. She chose to envelope herself in a healing colour. People’s homes are their physical space and I want to help improve their health and well-being, help heal them emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually by doing daily practices, create healing spaces with colour and environmentally friendly design ideas that promote a healthier life.
