A cosy snug can improve our physical and mental health

Shockingly, a lacklustre room can induce symptoms like those associated with a stroke or macular degeneration.

So ditch the drab and scrap the sparse – because architectural theorists and environmental psychologists make a compelling case in favour of cosy snugs and the integration of colour, texture and pattern.

These spaces – like Angel O’Donnell’s Chelsea haven – can reduce blood pressure and increase attentiveness while happily stimulating the senses.
