In a world filled with modern technology and bustling cities, humankind's connection to nature has never been more important. It is within this context that biophilic thinking emerges as a guiding principle, offering us a way to reconnect with the natural world.
In comparison to our previous wall mural collection, Biophilic Simplicity elevates the concept to a higher level, exploring the intricate details and textures present in the natural world and transforming them into captivating wall murals. Our intention is to harness the many benefits that nature provides and share them with you. Centered around organic shapes and a green color palette complemented by brown tones, our aim is to take advantage of the biophilic design benefits and infuse the beauty of nature into every corner of our homes.
What is biophilia?
Before we dive into the depths of our latest biophilic collection, let's revisit the very heart of biophilic principles. Essentially, it is an approach that incorporates natural and environmental elements into our built environments, tapping into our inborn tendency to seek a connection with nature. It is based on the understanding that surrounding ourselves with natural elements can have a profoundly positive impact on our wellbeing. By embracing biophilic design, we create spaces that reduce stress, increase productivity and stimulate creativity. Our homes are more than just physical structures, they are our sanctuaries. They should foster our mental health and give us a sense of peace and tranquility. Biophilic design enables us to achieve just that.
A new perspective on biophilia
With this collection we've taken a step back and immersed ourselves in the hidden treasures of nature. We have extended our horizons and focused our attention on the more subtle, often overlooked details and surfaces that nature has to offer. The result is a collection of wall murals that introduce a more abstract and artistic perspective, exploring heavily painted surfaces, the rustic charm of wood and the characteristic details of species. We want to show that biophilic design can be a gateway to creating a modern and artistic interior. Our goal with this collection is to offer an alternative way to embrace biophilic design, allowing you to create a more modern and artistic ambiance in your home.
Styling with biophilic design
When incorporating biophilic design into your interior design, it is important to think beyond the obvious. Biophilia extends far beyond simple trees and plants. Nature is a rich source of inspiration and has a multitude of aspects that can be used to create an immersive experience in biophilic design. It is not only about using natural elements in our built environments, but also about understanding and recreating the complex patterns, structures and emotions that nature offers. By acknowledging all the fine, complex and varied aspects of nature, we can create more rich and rewarding environments that promote well-being and creativity.
Consider these elements for interior design inspiration:
Natural materials: By using natural materials such as wood, stone, bamboo and earthy textiles in your interior design, you can create a strong connection to the raw beauty of nature. These materials give your home an earthy and warm atmosphere while also conveying a sense of sustainability and endurance.
Handmade decor creations: Include handmade objects and artwork that are inspired by nature. This could be ceramics created with inspiration from organic forms or paintings that capture the changing beauty of the landscape. They help you maintain an emotional and creative connection with nature.
Outdoor connection: Creating a direct connection to the outdoor environment in your interior design can be very rewarding. Create yourself a view of your garden or the nature outside your windows. If you have the space, consider creating an outdoor lounge where you can relax and enjoy nature. By having a visual and physical connection to the natural surroundings, you create a harmonious extension of your indoor space.
Textures and patterns: Integrate textures and patterns that recall the diversity of nature, such as the irregular and asymmetrical shapes of leaves and mushrooms. These textures and patterns can be used in textiles, wallpapers or as decorative details, adding a subtle and varied but significant aspect to biophilic design.
Colors inspired by nature: Use color palettes that take inspiration from nature. Earthy colors such as various shades of green, brown, blue and gray can provide a deeply embedded sense of the outdoors and promote peace and tranquility. These shades reflect the landscape, forest, water and sky, providing a visual reminder of nature's abundance and beauty. These colors also help to create a calm and peaceful atmosphere, which is a key factor in biophilic interior design.
Nature at the level of detail
When we truly get in close to the level of detail of a species, it usually reveals nature’s patterns and shapes that are incredibly beautiful and fascinating. These almost forgotten details are like nature's works of art themselves. Turning them into wallpaper gives us the opportunity to bring this into our everyday lives. It allows us to celebrate and preserve the small wonders that are often overlooked. So, when we create wallpaper from these details, we do more than just decorate our rooms. We are also creating a connection with nature on a more intimate level, awakening curiosity and appreciation for the wonderful patterns that nature has created. A unique opportunity to unite art and nature in a way that enriches our lives and our homes.
