25 Biophilic Home Decor Ideas That Inspire
The word ‘biophilia’ means ‘love to nature’ and it appeared for the first time in 1984. It’s logical that very trendy today biophilic design is incorporating nature with decor. It includes natural light, vegetation, natural materials, natural colors, natural shapes and animals. This idea to fuse design with natural elements is considered to have a lot of benefits to a person’s wellbeing. Want to know how to realize that? Here are some ideas.
The easiest ways for most homes to incorporate biophilic design is via vegetation, windows, skylights and the use of natural materials – wood, stone, marble and so on. The simplest ways to feel a strong connection with nature is to have a nice view of the outdoors. By opening the windows often you’re letting the sunshine in and you’ll also be able to feel gentle breeze which will wake you up and give you energy. Plants are also a great way to make your room seem cozier, and you don’t have to turn it into a jungle either: a couple of nice pots with cacti or fern will do the trick. Also, photos and wallpapers with natural patterns on them represent a symbolic connection to nature. You may go for trendy green walls, too, but they should be living ones.

Using bath mats made of pebbles or real moss, towels made of organic cotton or bamboo, and placing a plant that loves warmth and humidity in the corner will completely transform the space. Go for textiles with natural designs and made of natural materials such as silk, cotton, or bamboo, and also use carpets or throw rugs made of wool. These are a bit more expensive items, but they’re also natural and better for your health. You could also try playing soothing sounds around bedtime to help you relax and fall asleep faster: sounds of running water, ocean waves, or frogs will make you feel like you’re sleeping outside while you’re actually in your comfy bed. Bring a natural feel to your home providing a biophilic design!
