Home Décor Ideas for a Biophilic Home Interior

Posted on01/08/2022

Our homes need to connect with us in a way unlike any other space to help us rest and relax, and biophilic designs are perfect for that purpose. This design creates a soothing environment to feed our need for enjoyment, relaxation and refreshment, as well as improves our overall well being.

What is Biophilic Design?

According to the biophilia hypothesis, humans have a natural desire to seek connection with nature and other forms of life that benefit human health and productivity. This is what biophilic design is all about. It acknowledges our need and seeks to establish links between humans and nature through the use of natural resources, as well as to create a harmonious environment of modern architecture and nature. But since biophilic design focuses on aspects of the natural world that contribute positively to human flourishing, other environments such as the desert and deep sea are irrelevant in this design because they provide us with little to no benefit.

Benefits of Biophilic Design

Living in a naturalistic environment has both mental and physical benefits. It is calming, uplifting, soothing, and even helps to reduce anxiety because being close to nature instils in us a more positive outlook on life. Biophilic design also improves indoor air quality, which benefits respiratory health.

How to Create a Biophilic Home Interior?

1. Wooden Furniture

Wood is a natural material derived from nature, making it ideal for creating a biophilic interior. Whether it's a wooden dining table, a dining bench, a bed frame, or other types of wooden furniture, they work well together and contribute the most to biophilic design. Add some green potted plants to your wooden furniture and you'll have the ideal environment for relaxation.

2. Declutter

Allow for more natural light, air flow, and a clean and organised space in your home, as these elements contribute to a healthy environment and enhance the beauty of a biophilic interior. They also help to keep us calm and happy, as clutter can cause anxiety, sleep and focus issues, and stress levels to rise.

3. Fibre instead of Leather

Leather sofas provide a clean and polished appearance that is not found in natural settings. Fibre sofas, even those made of polyester, have a more natural and organic appearance that complements the biophilic design. They also go well with your wooden dining table and chairs to create a complete look.

4. Earthy Colour Palette

Finally, an earthy colour palette contributes to a more natural interior design and even brings us closer to nature. Colours like beige, brown, tan, warm grey, and olive green are ideal for a biophilic interior and are also very soothing to the eyes.

It is extremely relaxing and pleasant to return home to a comfortable place with a biophilic design. It relieves all of your stress and allows you to focus on rest in a safe environment away from the outside world.
