Sometimes the demands of life keep us stuck indoors more often than we’d like. Getting back outside into nature is a common stress relief practice that’s becoming harder to incorporate into our everyday modern lives. Regardless of where you live, if you’re inside your home more often than not, you’re missing many of the benefits the natural world can bring. Incorporating a biophilic design into every living space is essential for humanity. It helps reconnect people with nature by inviting the outside world in and creating a sense of overall happiness within people’s lives.
Below we’ll offer up some ways biophilic designs inspire a happier lifestyle, as well as a few suggestions on how you can further incorporate biophilic designs into your whole living space.
Improves Overall Health
Numerous studies show that living with nature fosters a positive overall sense of wellbeing and increased self-esteem. Start incorporating biophilia into your space by adding a visual connection to nature, like indoor houseplants. Plants naturally purify the air from toxins and impurities, improving indoor air quality and overall health.

Incorporating biophilic designs can help you bring peace and relaxation to any space. Adding natural elements like minerals to your space promotes positive energy and a grounded connection to nature. Find more crystals from our collection here.
Hanging plants are great because they don’t take up much room. They also provide wonderful layers of color and texture to your space, providing visual and physical stimuli to create an increased sense of happiness and calm.
Using natural materials for any biophilic construction or design in your home increases the sustainability of your space while also maintaining the biodiversity of your area. This increases the function of your design to meet your home’s needs, while also potentially increasing the value of your home —and that is always a good thing.
People who spend a lot of time indoors risk losing out on the benefits of nature. Without the stimulation of natural surroundings like natural light, water, and plant life, people miss out on the liveliness and bountiful gift that nature gives us.
By bringing the outdoors in, biophilic designs blur the lines of interior and exterior spaces by creating a seamless integration of modern living and Mother Earth. Incorporating preserved moss walls provides the fusion between art and nature, coexisting beautifully to improve your life and wellbeing. Moss walls bring not only visual natural cues but tactile and olfactory ones as well, which enhances and expands the benefits of biophilic design.
Big companies like Google and Amazon started incorporating biophilic designs into their employee’s work environment and saw a dramatic increase in overall creativity and productivity. Including plants in any workspace helps people feel at ease and recharged. What’s great is that biophilic designs can be scaled to size, so often, these ideas can be customized to fit any space at home.
Add creative biophilic touches like this moss wall art to bring calmness and peace to the stressors in your life. Moss helps to absorb sound, and regulate humidity, but it’s also malleable, which makes it a great canvas to start creating your own biophilic design.
Building a vertical garden is also an eye-catching, sophisticated addition for any space. You can customize the plants to fit your preference while also improving your mood. Find more creative ideas here.
