House Beautiful’s Whole Home Project celebrates living with wellness and technology—from a kitchen designed to make you healthier, to an entryway and garage organized to eliminate clutter and promote calmness, to every space around and in between.

This first-ever custom-built house will showcase ideas and innovations that feed happiness and drive well-being in every facet of our lives.                                                                                         

The Whole Home Concept House will be the culmination of HOUSE BEAUTIFUL’s year-long wellness initiative. Together we are working to build out a real home that embodies all the wellness attributes and examples of the project’s themes.

The Whole Home Concept House will be revealed in a special multi-page editorial feature in the November 2018 issue that will highlight our sponsors’ products, providing maximum visibility to an audience of over 6 million readers.
