HEATHER SHELDEN // Wellness-Driven Interior Designer

Hello and welcome to Natural Design Company (NDC for short)! I’m here to help you create beautiful and healthy spaces. I focus on designing interiors with a focus on healthy products, fabrics and building materials to reduce your exposure to toxic chemicals and promote wellness.

I’ve been in love with design since I was kid and rearranged my bedroom about once a month growing up because I was constantly wanting to express my creativity. I love creating spaces that make people feel good. I’ve also studied holistic and natural health since my teens and love incorporating that knowledge into my wellness-driven design projects.

After going through stage 4 cancer and surviving, I realized I wanted to help people’s health while creating beautiful spaces. So many products contain toxic chemicals so I went out to find better ones. I used to work in the building materials industry and started asking lots of questions about healthier products. They aren’t as easy to source but they’re out there and I knew I had found my niche.

I’d describe my style as Modern-ish Simple Oasis with a touch of Sophistication. I lean towards simplicity because clutter can affect your health (thank you Marie Kondo!). I love beautiful architecture and getting inspiration from everywhere I go, especially resort spas because they have such a tranquility factor to them that I love to recreate.

I’m always looking for healthier alternatives to things for my family and my clients. I enjoy working with clients who are curious about wellness-driven design, are flexible, optimistic and fun because we’ll be communicating a lot.

  1. Hi Heather. Your tempeh with coconut sounds terrific. Always looking for exciting ways to prepare this fine food. We produced Betsy’s Tempeh in Mich. for 9 1/2 years back in the mid 80’s and developed a new process for making tempeh on stainless steel trays. We sold our tempeh in both patty and grated form that our customers loved!
    We recently filed a patent for a tempeh incubator that could be used in restaurants and small shops making artisan tempeh for the local markets. We connected with a group that can take our invention to the next level called TempehSure. com. There you can read the history and the people involved in the amazing project.
    Meanwhile you can check out our website showing our easy method for making tempeh at home. By the way, we live in Port Hueneme, Ventura county, Calif. So if you ever come up this way, let us know and drop in for a tempeh panini since we make tempeh for ourselves and friends.
    Happy eating
