Ilse Paanakker works as an innovation consultant, and she refers to herself as a wellness guru. She lives in a small 280 square foot home, but the way she decorates it with her green thumb makes it look much more expansive and welcoming. Since the apartment has four large windows, it gives her the perfect opportunity to let natural light in, allowing her plants to thrive. Vines from a plant on her bookcase drape over the wall unit, and she decorates each windowsill with compact pots and budding plants.
- Ilse Paanakker is not just using wellness as a buzzword. In her daily work, she helps women build healthy lifestyles one habit at a time.
- Ilse’s home has the true marks of a wellness lifestyle. It is 280 square feet and has plants in the interior with DIY projects.
- She was initially concerned about fitting a bed in her living room but she went for a Murphy bed and that solved the problem.
“My studio has four big windows in the main living space which bring in incredible natural light. This is definitely my favorite feature. It’s also my reward for walking up six flights of stairs!”
