This sitting room is a perfect example of Biophilic Design in the home. I wrote about the principles of Biophilic Design in the workplace some time ago, but its advantages in all areas of our lives speak for themselves. Incorporating direct or indirect elements of nature into offices has been demonstrated through research to reduce stress, blood pressure levels and heart rates. All the while increasing productivity, creativity and feelings of well-being. Just imagine how beneficial to have these positive feelings at home too. What’s more it looks beautiful. Just browse Instagram for a few minutes and see how utterly desirable this trend is too.

Get The Look
The abundance of natural light is the most striking aspect of this sitting room, but the natural materials sing out too. From the warm wood on the floor and the wood panelling on the wall behind the sofa. To the contrasting forest of greenery hanging from the ceiling and covering every horizontal surface. The teal velvet sofa and plush Moroccan inspired rug add hints of luxury. While the wool throw and plump cushions add even more layers of comfort. This is a room for reading, relaxing, and just being.
