'This book has the power to change everything' Susan Cain, author of Quiet

In this groundbreaking book, designer Ingrid Fetell Lee explores how making small changes to your surroundings can create extraordinary happiness in your life. Drawing on insights from neuroscience and psychology, she reveals how the seemingly mundane spaces and objects we interact with every day have surprising effects on our mood and how we can harness the power of our environment to live fuller, healthier and more joyful lives.

'An inexhaustible and exciting guide to what makes life good' Arianna Huffington

This book has the power to change everything. Writing with depth, wit, and insight, Ingrid Fetell Lee shares all you need to know in order to create external environments that give rise to inner joy. ― Susan Cain, author of QUIET and founder of Quiet Revolution

A completely original treatment of a completely new and original idea: we all have within the power to design joy into our lives. Joyful is an inexhaustible and exciting guide to what makes life good ― - Arianna Huffington, Founder & CEO, Thrive Global; Founder, The Huffington Post

Joy is the most basic building block of happiness, and this mesmerizing book reveals where to find it―and how to create it. Ingrid Fetell Lee’s blockbuster debut will open your eyes to all the places where joy is hiding in plain sight.

A tender and moving book about one of our most important feelings - joy ― Johann Hari, New York Times bestselling author of Lost Connections

Joyful overturns conventional wisdom about happiness: that it comes from within, and that experiences--not things--make us happier. Ingrid Fetell Lee's delightful book evokes the same positive feelings she describes. It is full of whimsy, wonder, energy, and joy. I loved it. ― Sonja Lyubomirsky, Professor of Psychology, University of California, Riverside, and author of The How of Happiness
