WHY THE NATURE VIDEOS ON AN INTERIOR DESIGN SITE?
At Health & Home, we take every opportunity to pull inspiration from nature. The planet that we all call home is effortlessly picturesque. The colors and aesthetics of nature are perfect by design; they are the original classic, and they’ll never go out of style. What’s more is that, by capturing and imitating the Earth’s natural beauty, we can even influence our moods, heal our bodies and minds, and evoke particular feelings and behaviors within ourselves.
Throughout our website, we’ve intentionally chosen different nature-themed visuals on each page to arouse certain psychological responses. As you navigate our pages, take the time to be present within your mind and draw attention to how each page makes you feel. The purpose of this is to demonstrate how making intentional design choices rooted in biology and psychology can have a profound impact. You can click to expand the side tabs on each page to discover the science behind what we’ve chosen.
The color green symbolizes growth, renewal, and new beginnings. It is the most abundant color in nature, and thought to be the most soothing and relaxing color. Cognitively, the color green enhances stability, endurance, problem-solving, and focus. It even improves memory – we’re more likely to remember words written in green! It motivates us to persist and pursue our goals. Viewing greenery in nature, such as trees and forests, has been shown to have lots of benefits, including reducing stress, lowering blood pressure, and improving self-discipline, attention, and work performance. This is why we intentionally chose this theme for our “learn” page, which includes e-courses and educational materials. It’s also why it would make a smart choice for a home office or study.
