By using simple biophilic design tips and weaving natural elements into your home, you can make your indoor living, sleeping and working areas more healthy, happy and relaxing. From wild swimming to forest bathing and wildlife gardening, being outside in nature can lift our spirits, refresh our minds and soothe our souls. And that essential connection to the wild can also be brought into your home.
From maximising natural views, greening up windowsills and balconies and inviting wildlife up close, to the use of wild colours, materials and patterns, interiors expert Victoria Harrison looks at creative ways to link your living spaces to the outdoors. There are quick and fun projects sprinkled throughout, and plenty of practical ideas to inspire, whether you live in a rented urban apartment or a family home.
