Happy Homes with Biophilic Design

Happy living environments are imperative to our wellbeing and interior design can play a huge part in achieving this. The importance of creating a space that reflects positively on your mental health has been a prominent topic over the past few years. A recent article by New Scientist even states that there has been a growing number of neuroscientists working alongside architects and interior designers*. At a time when remote work is the new normal, it makes perfect sense that homeowners are opting for interiors that radiate happiness and positivity, over minimalistic and muted designs. An increasingly popular choice that is associated with enhancing spaces this way is Biophilic design.  Biophilia is defined as an instinct to connect with nature and all living things. The connection to nature has been found to support mental health and cognitive functions, as well as reduce stress and help boost moods. Biophilic interiors encourage bright spaces and natural light that allow people to practice mindfulness, self-care and find sanctuary within the home. Richard Burbidge’s trend, ‘Zen Living’, is characterised by light colour palettes, rustic tones, greenery and sustainable products. It encapsulates the notion of choosing designs that benefit your happiness and wellbeing, as well as offering an easy way to introduce more sustainable products into your home. When paired with natural timber such as Richard Burbidge’s stairparts or wall panelling, this can easily add a Biophilic influence to a space. This can be achieved using Richard Burbidge’s Trademark range, with a choice of oak, hemlock, pine, or white finishes to add a simple but beautiful design to your stairway. With its light and natural timber options, the Trademark collection has something to suit every budget and allows homeowners to mix and match in order to create their desired look. Richard Burbidge’s trend, ‘Outside in’, also represents a combination of rustic finishes and natural wood furnishings alongside modern touches. The Elements range, with a choice of glass, metal or timber combinations is ideal for a contemporary, yet classic look. Better yet, these materials add a sense of serenity to a room that welcomes a harmonious blend of the rural outdoors and cosy décor. Wall cladding painted in light or rustic tones can also be easily paired with Biophilic décor such as large palms or potted plants and natural ceramics. Whilst a natural timber panelled wall can help to widen a room and achieve a simple, yet sustainable look that incorporates nature in the space.

Planet Mark Business Certification

Archwood Group are proud to announce that we have partnered with Planet Mark as part of our sustainability commitments and the United Nations Race to Zero campaign. As a business, it is critical that we measure our own impact on the environment. Planet Mark will support us with measuring and validating our carbon footprint, creating a clear picture of all our environmental impacts. This will allow us to identify ways to take rigorous and immediate action to halve our carbon footprint by 2030 and achieve Net Zero by no later than 2050. After many months of data collation and external verification we are proud to announce that we’ve achieved the Planet Mark Year 1 Business Certification. This is an incredible achievement involving the entire business. The Planet Mark Business Certification is an internationally recognised sustainability certification for businesses reporting its carbon footprint and demonstrating continuous progress, encouraging action and building an empowered community of like-minded individuals. Through Planet Mark we have protected an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. In addition, through our commitment to Planet Mark we are also helping the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future. We want to continue to do our part in having a positive impact on the planet and society. Each and every one of us plays an important role in our sustainability journey. We look forward to sharing our sustainability achievements over the coming months and encourage you to get in touch if you have any questions, suggestions or would like to get involved.
