It influences everything from cityscapes to the colors we choose for our bedroom walls.
Yes, biophilia is trending globally.
My own reading of it is as follows: Biophilia can be a delicate procedure like giving your fern a drink of water while brewing your morning coffee, as I do, or a big deal like having a glass dome-style sitting room reminiscent of the National Botanic Gardens.
I check with designer cork and life enthusiasts for details.
“I’m excited about bioscience because it’s an area of design that can increase your health, reduce stress, improve cognitive function, speed recovery, and boost your creativity at home or in the office.”
“Earth colors, natural fibers and materials, daylight, organic shapes, nature and botanical prints, water features, aromatic plants, living ceilings, and moss walls all work together to provide us with that connection.”

- Bring fresh air into your space, open the windows – this will also allow you to hear some nature sounds outside, obviously depending on where you live
- Maximize the light entering your home If you can open up a space in your home to incorporate a bay window/double door, or add a skylight, do so. Other simpler methods include pulling the curtains back to let the light in; Have some sitting/reading areas, or even put your desk near a window
- Eliminate Clutter – Make the most of your space because clutter is not good for the mind
If you don’t have the option of looking at nature, simulate it.
- Use your walls as canvases
- Add photos of you in nature, or paintings with great landscapes
- Add a background to botanical prints
- Create a mural of an area in nature that you love
- Add some stones on the wall, or an area that you can see from your house through a window
- Make sure that there is a light-colored paint on the walls; This highlights plants and natural elements in the décor, or use a color palette derived from nature – earthy tones, forest colors or sunset shades.
- Add greenery to your tablescape
- Add Natural Patterns: What I mean by this is probably adding honeycomb tiles to a backsplash in your kitchen or bathroom
- Add candles and diffusers with the scent of forests, sea and nature
- Bring in greenery, this will surely make you feel more connected to nature. English ivy, peace lily, weeping fig, spider plant, snake plant, and Boston fern are able to filter toxins from the air.
- Add a wall for living in the hall or kitchen area, or add a herb tower in your kitchen to grow herbs
- Soft furnishings: duvets and pillows
- Furniture that follows natural lines and lines, such as coffee tables, office desks, custom window seats, dining tables, and shelves
- Wooden screens: They are now frequently used in homes, commercial spaces and restaurants to divide space without compromising on lighting
Large or small, this will add a sense of calm to the space, and a small water fountain can be installed anywhere in the house – next to the front door, worktop, or on the windowsill.
