Interior Design


There is a rise in stress in the modern world and therefore a rise in anxiety and depression. We evolved in nature but as we further evolve so does technology that is taking over our lives. Using nature in interior design can give us a link back to nature and a bridge back to better psychological health. Through combining research and studies that focus on the effects of nature, natural light, vistas, plants, smells, sound as well as color texture and finishes we can have a positive and lasing effect on individuals in the home suffering from anxiety and depression as well as other mental illnesses.
