Biophilic Design is based on research that identifies specific design patterns found in nature that have measurable, positive impacts on human health and well-being. Incorporating aspects of Biophilic Design into your home’s interior design will create a space that not only looks great, but feels right. Natural Analouges is one category of Biophilic Design that is explored in this article.
Based on our love of nature, Biophilic Design provides a new framework for interior designers and architects, in which to create spaces where people are healthier, more satisfied and more productive when designing your home. It addresses how environments affect how well we think and perform, how we feel, and how our physical bodies respond. This is one of the tools we at Indigo Interiors, Inc. and Stacey Lapuk Interiors make use of, to ensure that your house becomes your dream home.
I’ve recently become interested in learning about Biophilic design, how our vital connection to nature can be carried into the design of our homes. Far more impactful than bringing a plant indoors or installing a wall of windows, understanding and implementing Biophilia in our work can vastly improve the lives of our clients. I hope you become as fascinated with this field of science as it collaborates with art and design, as I am!
