How interior design can improve the way you live?
Good design supports health and well-being for all people, considering physical, mental, and emotional effects on building occupants and the surrounding community. Design is an organic, natural, harmonious need that we all have in Nature. Your homes should enclose a space that is deeply in tune with you and your soul and values. Somewhere you feel completely comfortable, in a happy and healthy environment where you can create pleasant memories.

“love of life.” Biophilic design is an applied solution to appease this desire for
nature by integrating natural elements and processes into the built environment. Design that connects us to nature is proven to inspire us, boost our productivity and even contribute to a stronger sense of well-being. Now more than ever, it’s necessary to bring the outdoors in and create indoor environments – biophilic interiors, that reference nature in both obvious and subtle ways.

Ergonomics is the process of designing or arranging workplaces, products and systems so that they fit the people who use them.

Color psychology is the study of how color affects our perceptions and behaviors. The truth is that color can influence virtually everything we do, think and feel. It impacts our mood, wellbeing, opinions, behavior and emotions. The same color can have different meanings for different people, depending on a range of factors, including upbringing, gender, personal values, and life experiences. Also, it has an increasingly important role in interior design. Applying color psychology in interior design means not only combining the colors but also using the right color tone and shade that resonates and expresses your feelings and personality. It tells us something important about ourselves and – whether we realize it or not – influences so many of our life choices.
Our natural clock is in the part of the brain called the hypothalamus, which is linked to
photoreceptors located throughout the body (such as the retina). These receptors are
responsible for synchronizing our internal clock with the light we absorb during the day. Understanding the circadian cycle is essential because it affects the rhythms of the human body and influences sleep, mood, wakefulness, digestion, temperature control, and even cell renewal. Research shows that an adequate amount of light improves mood and energy levels, while poor lighting contributes to depression and other deficiencies in the body.
