Beauty is in the eye of the beholder; and studies have shown that gazing at art alone can cause a surge of dopamine in the orbital frontal cortex of the brain. The same affect associated with romantic love. Do the art, textiles, wallpaper, molding, tile, color palette and furniture combination in your home create visual zen for your brain? Walk through your home and rate each room [...]
