Bringing Nature Home
Our connections to nature and the natural elements are instrumental to our wellbeing. Since we spend 90% of our time indoors, we have alienated ourselves from nature and weakened our connection. We need to integrate the natural aspects that contribute to our health and wellness into our homes, so we continue to reap nature’s benefits while indoors.
Plants purify the air from toxins, relax and rejuvenate us, and that’s just the beginning. But integrating nature into our lives goes beyond adding plants. From wood and water to sound, sent and light, we will explore the different elements and their effect on the individuals.
This workshop will teach you everything you need to know about nature and its elements that contribute to health and wellness and how to integrate them tastefully while staying true to your own sense of beauty.
You will also learn design tricks to create the feel of natural environment when the space doesn’t support nature's integration.
