2020 will forever be known as the year we stayed home to shelter from the storm outside; that’s where wellness interior design comes in! Never has it been more key to feel content in your space, and more people are recognising the role our homes play in wellbeing. As humans, we seek comfort, which can be achieved if you craft an interior just right. Read on to explore this theory in full from the presence of nature to colours that make us feel happy.

Choose colours that bring you joy

While everyone has their preference when it comes to wall colour, it pays to understand the psychology. For instance, red is said to help with physical performance so great for a gym but in a living room? Too aggressive for some. Blue, on the other hand, although a bold colour can help you feel calm and sleep better. Of course, one size does not fit all; it’s what you prefer, so aim to choose colours that bring you personal joy.

Display your favourite artwork

Artwork and photos are a brilliant way to create a happy home and boost wellness. Photos, in particular, remind us of the places we’ve been and the people we love – a shrine to your life so to speak. Traditionally people spend thousands on making improvements, but original artwork can instil a freshness into the aesthetic immediately. We can’t travel much right now, but you can still see the world with our bespoke map artwork by Mia James.

Bring the outside in

Biophilic Design is a concept used within building to increase occupants connectivity with the natural environment. The feeling of being connected with nature is proven to help with well-being, reduce stress and promote healing. To harmonise your home with outdoors opt for organic materials, plenty of plants and lush flower arrangements. As humans, we also need a combination of small spaces with wide-open rooms to feel secure yet still connected.

Treat yourself; indulge in a copper bath

Self-care is essential, especially right now – you can’t give to others what you don’t have yourself. It’s also well-known that bathing is a great way to relax and reset the mind – in fact, people who bathe are said to be much happier in general. Copper bathtubs are great for the environment and they go with all decor plus this metal contains many antioxidant properties. The definition of bliss, especially with fizz – shop our handcrafted Copper Bath range.

Don’t forget the feel-good finishing touches
