Going green to improve wellbeing
For many of us, January is a time of new beginnings. Whether starting a new exercise regime or committing to self-care and mindfulness, the post-Christmas period is an opportunity to start as we mean to go on.
The introduction of plants and greenery into your home – known as biophilic design – is an easy way to improve your overall wellbeing in the new year, and we’ve already seen many of you embracing this growing trend.
With spring still a long way off and more time spent indoors, plants, natural light and green colours can help banish the January blues and fill the gap left by the Christmas tree!
Bathing in nature
By surrounding their bath with plants, thecjhome has tuned into the essence of biophilic design: connecting with nature helps to reduce stress and anxiety, and improve overall happiness – making that evening bath even more relaxing. This is a beautiful space perfectly designed for winding down at the end of the day.
Keeping Christmas alive
Here, homesweethome.99 reminds us that fairy lights are not just for Christmas trees! We love the use of twinkly lights to highlight these gorgeous houseplants, whilst adding a touch of much-needed festive sparkle to keep the winter blues at bay.
A wall of wellbeing
Here is biophilic design at its best – a living wall! ournewbuildlife has used a verdant array of plants and greenery to decorate the master bedroom. Not only do these plants add an original decorative touch, but they also deliver a hefty dose of wellbeing last thing at night and first thing in the morning.
