On average, we spend a frightening 93% of our lives indoors — at work, at home, in the gym — and increasing amounts of evidence and research highlight how our overall health is impacted by factors such as adequate natural light, good air quality, view to nature, using colours that promote mental wellbeing, acoustics, furnishings, comfort and so much more. The design that surrounds us in our day-to-day lives should not only be responsive to our needs, behaviours and requirements, but tailored in a way that unique to each person or family.
Holistic Interior Design (also known as Wellbeing Design) is chiefly concerned with supporting wellness of the mind, body and spirit of the people who inhabit a particular space. Instead of solely considering the space’s form and function alone, Holistic Design enables us to delve deeper and contemplate how a room “feels” to you., promoting the physical, mental and spiritual health of those who live and work within. Using knowledge that revolves around colour psychology, environmental psychology, human biology and ergonomics, among other areas of study, we will not only design an environment that is aesthetically pleasing, but one that functions well and has an impact on your overall health and wellbeing.
Scientific proof shows that our physical environments affect our health and wellbeing more than we may think, which is why Catherine acknowledges the importance of having a home that supports your health, a workplace where employees flourish and a business that draws people in because they feel stimulated and rejuvenated.
