Today we are talking about the trending topic of creating biophilic spaces in your office! The word ‘biophilia’ originates from Greece and translates to meaning ‘a love of life or living things’. In essence, the design concept of biophilic spaces exists to celebrate the love and appreciation that one has for the natural world. Bonding closely with fauna and flora, even when indoors, is a great way to keep your connection with the outside world strong and consistent!
This concept is not only gorgeous, but it can also help to bring inner peace and has been said to improve physical health and cognitive function. If you’d like to add earthy elements to your home, why not give these a try?!
