Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas

 

Architecture is constantly evolving. History would tell us of mammoth structures of perfect pyramids and marble temples reaching towards the sky and constructed by bare hands and human labor. Eons ago, the Classical approach has given rise to smaller temples, shrines and columns that were erected by Greeks and Romans in honor of mythological gods and goddesses. In the 11th century, the Gothic style ruled architecture with pointed arches, elaborate stained glass and ribbed vaulting. Come 19th century, and Neoclassicism, Art Nouveau and Modernist styles have emerged.

Fast forward to today, you will see a myriad of architectural designs filling the world with beauty and wonder. Minimalism has taught everyone that less is more, thus the interior uses minimal decor to get more space. Houses are now adorned with eclectic accessories and cloaked in varied colors. You can even have your own style and incorporate it in the design of what you want your house to look like.

Today, a new trend in interior design is shaping architecture. With people becoming more inclined to environmentally-friendly solutions, biophilia has been born. What is it,you may ask? Biophilia is a love for nature, and incorporating this love to interior design.

Whether you’re working all day in the concrete jungle or just staying indoors, you always have the desire to commune with nature, to unwind, to destress. A biophilic setting at home gives you this solution daily. With the sights, sounds and smells of nature inside your house, you feel as if you are in the heart of the forest, close to the seashore or trekking the mountains.

Biophilia addresses the problem of people being disconnected from nature. You may be spending minimal time with nature due to responsibilities in the office and at home. At times, this makes you feel stressed out especially since nature brings positive effects to your physical and mental well-being. With biophilia, you can feel nature’s warmth and serenity without stepping outside your safe haven.

Now, how you integrate this natural setting into your home’s architecture and interior design? Here are a few useful tips to help you out.

Natural Light

One of the easiest ways to feel nature is to allow natural light to come inside your home. Truly, this saves you on the cost of electricity, but the price slash is just one the benefits you can reap. Exposure to natural light maintains healthy levels of hormones, melatonin and serotonin, that affect your sleep and mood patterns. As for the design, opt for large windows, or you can redesign roofing to allow natural light to peer through. Also, avoid things that block sunlight like thick and dark curtains. A good alternative is to put mirrors to reflect light around a gloomy space.

Green Roof

This is not news anymore but choosing a green roof provides more gains than you can imagine. Apart from interacting with natural elements, a green roof allows you to reduce runoff to the sewers, cooling your house and mitigating the problem of urban heat-island effect. This also means reducing usage of air conditioning to keep the temperature low inside.

Living Walls

Scrap the wallpaper and go for plants on your walls. A living wall is an essential biophilic element. Thanks to its calming effect, it improves mood, increases productivity, reduces stress and enhances air quality. Offices and rooms with enclosed structures can greatly benefit from living walls, especially those that do not have the benefit of striking outdoor scenery.

Biophilic design provides a convenient solution to our disconnection with nature, especially that the world continues to urbanize. With the natural elements at home or in the office, you, your family and colleagues can enjoy the sensations of a biophilic setting and improve overall well-being. If you are on the East Coast, consult Excel Builders in MD on how to attain a biophilic feel for your home.
