Botanical Interiors have been gaining strength in the interior world for some while now, but 2019 has seen a real explosion of interest in all things leafy and green. The relationship between humans and nature and our instinctive need to want to connect with our natural environment is more prominent now than ever before.
Perhaps it’s our increasingly hectic lives getting in the way of enjoying the outdoor lifestyle we crave or is it the want to live a more sustainable, green life? Whatever the reason, echoing what is happening outside our homes - inside is becoming more important to us.
Why Embracing the Botanical Trend is Good for our Health and Wellbeing.
The science behind why we should be using plants, foliage imagery and lush green hues to decorate our homes is simply to reap the same benefits we gain from being outdoors. It is a known fact that being outside lifts our spirits and makes us happier. Plants are known to reduce stress levels and improve air quality by absorbing pollutants, so why wouldn’t we want to include them in our homes? Similarly, if we look at the psychological effects of decorating with green; It is a colour that promotes relaxation, balance and harmony. It is also a colour that automatically makes us feel connected to nature and represents growth and prosperity. So 'going green' in our homes seems a natural choice.
So How Can We Recreate The Botanical Look In Our Homes?The botanical trend is a very easy trend to adopt and extremely versatile. No matter your style preference, incorporating this trend into your décor can be as subtle as adding extra house plants to an interior space or as full-on as creating an indoor tropical paradise.
