Series 5 · Episode 7
Sanctuary means different things to different people – from a Zen, minimalist space to a cosy, cluttered haven. With less time for rest and relaxation, we are looking for our own personal way to chill out and recharge. In this episode, Brendan Moar, Shannon Fricke and Peter Evans explore and compare people’s sense of sanctuary and look at how it is manifested in our homes, gardens and food.
My Personal Sanctuary – Shannon Fricke meets two women who have a completely different notion of what a sanctuary is. One woman’s home is clutterless, minimalist and in absolute order, while the other is relaxed and made up of enchanting clutter.
Get the Look – Shannon shows how you can create each of these looks in your home.
My Garden Sanctuary – Gardens offer sanctuary from our busy lives, they’re our personal haven where we relax, recharge and rethink. But when you design green spaces for a living and gorgeous gardens are the equivalent of your office – can they also be your sanctuary? Landscape designer Hugh Main tells us where he finds peace and relaxation.
Artescape – Brendan introduces us to a place where you can ignite your creative mind through artistic expression, when all the usual means of relaxation just don’t seem to work.
Chicken Soup for the Soul – There’s nothing like a hearty, rejuvenating meal to help you get through the dark and cloudy day blues. Peter Evans meets with Judith Lewis from Lewis’ Continental Kitchen who shares her delicious recipe for the perfect traditional Chicken Soup. Pete also shows us his own quick alternative with his recipe for Stracciatella Soup.
Take a Breather Oxygen Bars – It’s time to take a breather – literally! Brendan and Shannon visit an Oxygen Bar in Tokyo where they sample the oxygen bar phenomenon.
