The current virus has many people around the World staying home. This has created a bit of humor from every generation. Some have taken the time to actually look around their home(s) to see what needs renovating and decluttering.
As a digital nomad during these times, I have a unique take on this matter. I've spent more time looking around accommodations for some healthy global design tips.
Here's some simple global design tips...
* Minimalism - When you travel to Asia, you really start to appreciate minimalism. Less is truly more. Rental accommodations around the World have started to embrace this though. We truly just need the basics in life.

* Bamboo - Bamboo is seen throughout East and South Asia. I love how healthy and eco-friendly bamboo is! It's great to use indoors and out due to its fast growing nature. You can use it for kitchenware, flooring, privacy fencing, container gardening, and so much more! Japan provides a great resource for its many uses.

* Smart Tech - The real cultural shocks these days come when you stay in modern accommodations in Asia. Japanese toilets still fascinate many westerners. Our inner child can't help but push all the buttons. You can find them in airports, hotels, hostels, and homes. If you're going to put one thing in your home, make it a Japanese toilet upgrade!
Electrical wall panels that control a room's air conditioning, lighting, etc are also handy for a streamlined environment.
Robots can't be overlooked either! A robot vacuum, esp if you have a pet, is a must!
