HEALTH & HOME

WHY THE NATURE VIDEOS ON AN INTERIOR DESIGN SITE?

At Health & Home, we’re all about creating a healthy home by minimizing toxins and optimizing the design to maximize your health! And you know what? The easiest way to do that is to look to nature! Research has shown time and time again that using more natural and non-toxic products as well as incorporating elements of nature into our spaces, can both have a really positive impact on your overall health & wellness!

Now, don’t worry – you don’t have to turn your family room into a forest to get those benefits! Actually, you don’t have to change your aesthetic at all if you don’t want to! No matter what your personal style may be, we can work with you to create an environment that supports your health and wellness goals. We do this by looking at nature for things like colors, textures, and sounds to determine how they can positively or negatively impact your well-being based on the latest research, and then we use that information to create a space that’s just right for you & what you want from your space!

So why are there these videos at the top of the pages? Well, we put these here to help set the tone for the page and give you a taste of how exposure to elements of nature can impact your mood, your perception, and even your physical health! Below you will find an in-depth explanation as to why we chose the video we did for the page you are on and the research that we used to decide on that. Our hope is that this can help you see how you can intentionally take this kind of research and apply it to the design of your home so you can naturally get all the amazing benefits AND have a beautiful home at the same time!

HOW DID THIS PAGE MAKE YOU FEEL?

We wanted you to feel calm, curious & open as we know sometimes these ideas are different and while empowering, still can be overwhelming. The video featured on the Blog page portrays a serene blue sky with soft, white fluffy clouds, serving as a visual representation of the diverse ideas and thought-provoking content that awaits readers. The video aims to evoke a sense of open-mindedness, curiosity, and contemplation, inviting you to explore a wide range of topics related to creating a healthy home. By presenting the expansive sky as a backdrop, we hope to set the stage for a blog experience that encourages deep thinking, reflection, and the exploration of innovative ideas.

Research suggests that the color blue has a calming effect on the mind and is associated with feelings of tranquility, focus, and creativity (Kwallek et al., 1988; Mehta & Zhu, 2009). This aligns with the purpose of the Blog page, as we want you to feel encouraged to engage in thoughtful contemplation and consider different perspectives on creating a healthy home. The white fluffy clouds within the video symbolize the vast expanse of ideas and possibilities that can be explored within the blog. They represent the ever-changing nature of knowledge and the constant flow of new insights and inspirations.

When applied to interior design for a healthy home, incorporating blue elements can contribute to a calming and peaceful environment. Consider using blue hues in wall colors, furnishings, or decorative accents to create a serene atmosphere (Kwallek et al., 1988). Additionally, the use of white elements and natural lighting can mimic the appearance of fluffy clouds and enhance the sense of openness and inspiration within the space. By incorporating these elements, you can create an interior environment that fosters introspection, creativity, and the exploration of ideas—ultimately contributing to a holistic and health-focused living space!
