who we are

Home is the sanctuary for you and your loved ones,  to celebrate holidays, to gather with friends and family, and to tell your individual story. A place where all who grace your place can feel restored, comfortable, and content. Your family home or business is truly an investment. We design for clients by listening to them closely and then elevating the design to reflect their lifestyle and what their real vision truly is for the space. 

We are thrilled everyday to have the opportunity to work with great clients in a field we love.  Being inspired by Nature and Organic Materials helps support our local crafts persons, lowers our carbon footprint, less shipping, less waste, less pollution, and higher quality goods! We see this as a win win!!

Humans are predisposed to form connections with nature, and this provides many health benefits to us all.

 

What is Biophilic interior design?

Biophilia (meaning love of nature) focuses on human's innate attraction to nature and natural processes. Biophilic Design uses these ideas as principles to create a human-centered approach that when applied improves many of the spaces that we live and work in today, with numerous benefits to our health, well-being, and productivity.

Biophilic or Natural Inspired Design is proven to provide many benefits to humans.

To name just a few:

proven to lower stress

better short term memory and concentration

lower inflammation and cortisol

stronger immune system

 

We're proud to source over 95% of our products from North American sources and 'a few select overseas partners' that are like minded in our mission.

what to expect

We like to keep the process simple and as pain free for you as possible. We begin by chatting and getting to know each other. When you are ready we then meet with you (social distance and masks), for a measure and creative session to talk about your project space. Initially this can be a virtual style meeting or a chat on the phone. Whatever you are most comfortable with! We expect to give you great value, and a beautiful design that makes you confident that your return on investment  will last for years to come. Let's chat and get creative together!

going green: we are committed to recycling and re-purposing as many items as we can during your renovation with our select partners in the area. 

giving back: along with our service to you, we automatically make a donation to either Children's Hospital, the local food bank, or to benefit local Veterans.
