All About Biophilic Interior Design
The benefits of biophilic design extend to our homes, which can become more calming and restorative. Read more about this growing trend in this recent article and contact me your Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network Forever Agent to see what properties offer this exceptional style.
Architects and interior designers strive to create living spaces to make their clients happier. One approach is biophilic design which connects “occupants more closely to nature,” according to Archdaily.com.
Biophilia is the affinity and love humans have for the natural world and its life forms. We’re happier when we bring the outdoors inside, which explains the booming houseplant industry, reports Fastcompany.com. It’s why we have house pets, wood floors, skylights and screened windows in our homes. We pay premiums for homes with views of oceans, lakes, mountains, and park-like lawns. Humans spend 90% of their time indoors, so we’re happier, more focused, and healthier in a biophilic environment.
How can you add biophilic design to your environment? LifestyleAsia.com suggests that objects, materials, textures, colors, shapes, and sequences that mimic nature will stimulate visual, auditory, haptic, and olfactory connections to the natural world. Start with plenty of natural light. Add a water feature, such as a small entry fountain. Use walls to hang landscape paintings or botanical wallpaper. Add fragrant plants, flowers and candles with pine, lavender, and other soothing scents.
You’ll soon see that furniture, art, décor and architecture can work together to create a peaceful haven for your home.
