As we reflect on the things we have learned, affirmation on what connects us emerges – nature, heritage, and community. We explore how they can guide us through a time when we are all given the chance to reset and forge a new path.
On a basic level, we feel an innate physical need to reconnect to nature. Our physical and psychological health are improved by exposure to nature and it is imperative for our wellbeing. Switching from screen time to ‘green time’, outdoor breaks will help workers refresh and recharge from their daily grinds.
We are more conscious of our choices to balance humanity and our environment, building thriving environments that are restorative. Just as elements of nature are moving in, we also yearn to bring the interior outside. New materials emerge as bio composites and waste composites cause us to reframe what we consider natural. Earthy textures and colors immerse us into comforting spaces that feed the mind and soul.
Respect for our earth and tones of textural clay, deep verdant green and warmth golden glow create an authentic palette.
