1. Biophilic design
“Biophilic design, is all about incorporating nature into our homes through design. Bringing a soothing touch to our homes with interior design has shown that it can make us healthier and more productive.
“Opt for calming elements such as letting more natural light in, prioritising natural materials and greenery into your spaces. Biophilic design blurs the boundary between the indoors and outdoors and connects us to our surroundings.
“And in addition to the core elements of biophilic design, why not get inspired by natural shapes and forms such as curves or circles. Soften the room with curved furniture like round tables or sofas for a cosy and comforting appearance.”

2. The return of ‘The Room’
“With people spending more time at home, whether it’s for work or relaxation, we’re seeing a rise in broken plan living. Loosely based around open plan design, broken plan living is all about creating distinct zones to give our spaces more purpose. While an open plan room brings people closer it can also lacks privacy and warmth if the open areas aren’t styled properly.
“There are many options to divide your space. Open shelving units create a stylish and modern zone perfect for a home office or reading nook.Or consider using a bookshelf as a room divider and fill it with a variety of greenery for a fresh and open look. Even a couple of tall, leafy potted plants can help zone an area and give it some privacy without closing off the space completely.”
