thoughtful home design
The concept of The Thoughtful Home dates back to 2009 when President and CEO of BSB Design, Dan Swift, realized he wanted to design homes that could truly transform consumers. By incorporating intentional design elements, Swift has prioritized time-saving features, convenience, and anti-aging concepts. The concept revolves around six key principles: Convenience, flexibility, transition, security, relaxation, and rejuvenation.
