Connection to Nature
The colour green holds a profound connection to nature, making it an ideal choice for interior design. Green hues symbolise growth, renewal, and harmony, bringing the essence of the outdoors into our environments. This connection to nature has been shown to enhance our well-being and improve cognitive function.
It’s widely recognised that integrating green elements can help create a calming and soothing atmosphere – so great for the home office or bathroom for those relaxing long soaks. In fact, some research suggests the addition of green can physically reduce the symptoms of stress.
Opting for natural materials like wood is also thought to evoke a sense of serenity, especially where the wood grain and personality has been retained. By supporting local in your purchases you’re also ticking the other green box – reduction in air miles and in effect your carbon impact.
