"I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees.”
Henry David Thoreau
Many of us have found refuge from pandemic caused stress and challenges in nature more often than ever. Even after a short walk in the woods or a park, we would come home recharged, relaxed, full of new ideas, with the detoxed lungs and positive thoughts. It's is not an accident, as humans have a biologically encoded tendency to connect with nature, and this connection has proven benefits for physical, emotional and intellectual well-being.
"One touch of nature makes the whole world kin."
As not all of us have the luxury of spending enough time in nature, we need to create a nature mimicking environment in our built spaces through biophilic design. By adapting patterns of the natural world into our interiors, we can partially restore our intuitive connection with nature and, by this, improve our health and well-being.
Biophilic design is more than plant decor, so follow this blog to find out what these patterns are and how you can incorporate them in your home.
