Researching Home: Evidence-Based Residential Design

Sally Augustin, Ph.D. and Barbara B. Miller, ASID

Evidence-based design research is a powerful tool available to residential designers, but it is not used as often as it might be. Using research can help you understand how and why your client is likely to respond to your design and improves the likelihood of the ultimate success of your design. Developed by an environmental psychologist, Dr. Sally Augustin, and an experienced interior designer, Barbara Miller, ASID, who uses research in her own residential projects, this paper provides an overview of the existing research relevant to designing residential interiors and information on how to conduct your own research. Supplemented with practical applications and case studies, Researching Home is both an introduction and an essential resource for any designer wishing to take their practice to the next level.
