Biophilic interior design’s key characteristic is establishing a connection between nature and people by using elements from the natural world. The calming effects of nature will fulfill your physical, mental, and emotional needs. If you’re a lover of nature, then this design style is definitely a good choice for you. Here are a few ideas to help you incorporate Biophilic Design into your home.
Colors and Patterns Anointed by Nature
Hues from the natural world such as browns, tans, greens, whites, and blues will create a calming effect and reflect the bounty of Mother Nature. Fabrics patterned in arrays of leaves, flowers, clouds, and branches is another method for creating an indoor bond with the great outdoors.
Water Features for a Calming Effect
Water has a natural ability to calm us. After all, how peaceful do you feel when sitting by the river, floating in a tube on the lake, or listening to the rain? Including a couple of water features like a waterfall, an indoor pond, or an aquarium, will mimic this effect. These types of additions can be a bit costly, so hanging artwork of bodies of water can instill the same mood.
House Plants Galore
The rule of thumb in biophilic design is the more plants the better. Use a variety of plants such as ferns, spider plants, aloe, African violet, begonia, and more to bring the beauty of nature into your home. Indoor trees can also be used as a focal point. The key is to feel surrounded by plants from every direction. Plants also create oxygen, making your home’s air clean and refreshing.
Window Treatments for the Finishing Touch
Another characteristic of biophilic design is the use of natural elements such as wood. Norman Woodlore® Shutters are an excellent option to make your windows fit in with the new décor scheme. These shades are both functional and beautiful and will allow you to manage your light and privacy simultaneously with the INVISIBLETILT™ gear-driven system. The louvers will tilt like magic with the touch of your hand.
You can also incorporate the organic beauty of Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. Crafted with organic reeds, grasses, and bamboo, these stunning shades add textural intrigue to your windows while bringing a touch of nature into your home.
