Our biophilic design focused emphasizes the environment that can reduce stress, improve cognitive function and creativity, improve our well-being and expedite healing; as the world population continues to urbanize, these qualities are ever more important.
The chaos of the city living and the lack of privacy and space, develop a strong need for a more mindful approach to decorating. Designing for well-being is on the rise as homemakers now have a good grasp on the impact that the color, layout, furniture and material choices can make in their day to day lives.
Urban dwellers now see their homes as retreats. Places where they attend to their holistic sense of well-being while catering their deepest creative yearnings.
Dee Schlotter PPG Paints senior color marketing Manager, says: We are now craving colors that instill a sense of reassurance and comfort. We will expect to see more biophilic design—a gravitation toward hues and decor that mimic the sensation of being in nature—in city-dwellers’ spaces in particular. “These colors promote internal peace in an age where mental and physical well-being are critical ”.
