Bring Nature Indoors
A recent study done at Harvard found that #design not only plays a huge role in our professional life, but can also have an impact on our well-being when getting home as well.
The researchers examined 10 high-performing buildings across 5 U.S. cities studying the relationship between the conditions inside the building & both the productivity & well-being of the occupants.
It emerged that when we work in green-certified offices, we get a 26% boost in cognition, and 30% fewer sickness related absences. What's more, respondents also reported a 6% rise in their sleep quality.
So, it’s well worth bringing nature indoors in the form of leafy pot-plants, and incorporating design elements that focus on bright spaces with lots of natural light. For millennials, #biophilic inspired areas hold a big appeal, now we're tapping into the style-conscious personality of this generation!
