Plantscapes, Biolific Design, and Green Walls
These are all terms that have become part of the vernacular. They refer to the same idea of bringing more of the outdoors inside our businesses. The term Biophilia literally translated means “love of life”. The concept has fueled an industry focusing on connecting the inside to the outside. Natural elements such as plants, water, daylight, natural shapes and forms, and other natural materials all serve to make that connection. Studies have shown that this connection can result in increased well-being, improved cognitive function and focus, and increased use of the space.
If you’re looking to add some natural elements to your space, we can help!
Real or faux plants provide a wonderful connection to the natural world. If you’re a purist and want to keep it real, low maintenance varieties like Sansevieria (Snake Plant), ZZ Plant, Pothos, or Spider plants, in containers that reflect the rest of the décor are the way to go.
Don’t have a green thumb? Consider faux.
The quality of faux plants has improved dramatically. Offering more versatility, they can be used in creative ways. Another way to increase connection to the outside is through artwork. Pictures of nature and natural elements can also foster a connection to the outdoors.
