Charisse was destined to design. To create. To write.
“What change can I begin today – – within my home and myself – – to make a difference for a happier, healthier tomorrow?”
This is a question I ask myself every day, and I invite you to explore it with me!
All of us want to experience health and happiness, and all of us want to feel at ease in a home that is beautiful and stress free. But did you know that the two are actually connected?
I’m Charisse Marei, and I am passionate about helping people create an eco-conscious lifestyle and home that honors the connection between our well-being and the spaces we live, work, and play.
For me, this passion was sparked early on in life. Even as a little girl, I loved feeling the energy of the earth under my feet and the energy that radiates from others. I was drawn to nature, to loving it, protecting it, and basking in its beauty and goodness.
And I still am! I’m a free spirit who loves traveling, taking long walks and deep breaths of pure, clean air, and living a healthy, creative lifestyle in harmony with nature.
My creativity and passion also shaped my professional life. I earned my B.S. in Interior Design from Philadelphia University, and went on to study Feng Shui at the NY School of Feng Shui and Graceful Lifestyles.
The more I became conscious of the connection between the homes we live in, the air we breathe, the lifestyle we live, and our overall joyfulness and well-being, the more I wanted to learn how to weave these threads together. For me, interior design is about so much more than picking the right pieces of furniture—although I enjoy that, too! But at the heart of it, eco-conscious design is about cultivating the energy of the space to support the connection between a beautiful healthy home and our well-being.
I became a certified Professional Building Biology Environmental Consultant (BBEC) through the Building Biology Institute where I studied the science of healthy buildings, green design, eco-consultancy, and sustainable design. I added the gentle power of essential oils to my repertoire while attending the Young Living Natural Remedies and Beauty Schools.
Along the way I experienced some health challenges that started when I was injured in a bicycle accident. After an unrelated surgery, I began to experience other symptoms of dis-ease and a heightened sensitivity to environmental toxins. This only strengthened my resolve to rely on my foundation: love of nature, the belief in energetic balance and harmony, and a commitment to a clean, safe, non-toxic home and lifestyle.
Over time and with much tenacity, faith, and research, I was able to reclaim my good health, and now am even more passionate about sharing this message with others.
I do that today through my own boutique design consultancy, Charisse Marei, through my books and unique line of eco-friendly products, through online course offerings, through appearances on podcasts, radio, and TV, and through workshops and public speaking engagements. Wherever I am, the message I delight in sharing is one that promotes the health of the whole person, from the inside out, in harmony with nature and supported by living and working spaces that are as environmentally safe as they are beautiful.
