Nature. It’s something that we all aspire to getting back to as much as we can, but what happens when life gets in the way? 

Work and family commitments take up so much of our time and all of a sudden it’s been weeks (or months!) since we strolled along the beach or took a walk in the forest. So what’s a person to do?

Welcome to the concept of biophilic design.

Based around the capability to bring the outside in; biophilic design is all about using natural elements in and around your home to bring nature to you (when you can’t get to it).

Botanical wallpapers are making a huge comeback this year and are also perfect in helping bring nature into your interior. Adding texture and colour to your space; botanical wallpaper can help to create the calming effect that you feel when you’re outside amongst the trees, all without leaving your home.

If you’re lucky enough to have outdoor space why not utilise the chance to be outside no matter the time of year? Drop awnings are the perfect way to spend time outdoors without being affected by the elements. Experience those cooling summer breezes without being bugged by flies or sit out and enjoy the sound of rainfall without worrying about getting wet. 

Needless to say natural elements such as timber and clay and of course indoor houseplants are perfect additions to any room and our interior design specialists are ready to help you design your space with these features in mind to bring your biophilic space to life.

Whichever way you’d like to add nature to your home, we can help make it happen! Come into our showroom and let us help you turn your dream space into a reality.
