The Importance of a Sensory Home for Physical and Mental Health
The last two years, the impact of our environment on our physical and mental health has become a very important factor in our lives. Whilst the events of 2020 prompted us to embrace vulnerability, the emerging field of neuroaesthetics is shedding light on the ways in which the design of products or spaces around us can influence our mental state.
Impress designers have created a trend called “Sensory Healing”. Color, sound, light and texture are all put to use in the sensory home, stimulating or calming, rejuvenating or cocooning as needed. ASMR, dark spaces and acoustics are used therapeutically to support better mental wellbeing. This is a pro-technology trend as digital innovations help to support better wellbeing. Softer aesthetics and ‘quiet’ innovations offer a new approach; tech becomes calmer, more approachable and able to integrate seamlessly into our everyday lives.
Sensory Homes are designed to help people detox from noise and distraction. Darker spaces gain appeal in the name of sensory austerity. Low distraction settings have gained popularity in the hospitality industry as restaurants look to bring attention back to the flavours and experience of food, rather than ‘Instagrammable‘ decor. Design is tactile without being distracting and soft unicolor flows from space to space.
“Sensory Healing” trend transmits the message that consumers seek mental and physical resilience. Not just cleanliness and immunity to germs, but immunity to stress and burnout. We are increasingly see people turn their focus inwards towards introspection and intuition, rather than outwards for validation from others.
Annapurna Noce decor is bringing a balanced style with its stone-colored wood. Bland, generous, cut flowers alternate harmoniously with stripy, calm planks. Very light colors come into their own, and with a well-dosed play of colors, can be greatly matched to many interiors. Annapurna Noce creates a seamless flow trend, which focuses on continuity. This decor can solve a problem with small spaces, making them feel bigger from wall-to-wall color and materials.
Labano Ash decor is a balanced and calming decor with a mix of striped sections and cut flowers make. The few branches are well integrated and very restrained. This gives the design simplicity and preserves the necessary authenticity. Labano Ash supports better mental wellbeing, by avoiding any stress or burnouts.
Calmness is the descriptive attribute of the Tibus decor. Design is tactile without being distracting and soft unicolor flows from space to space. As a reproduction of cloudy travertine, the decor is characterized by its uniformity and delicate color nuances. In addition, small organic structures and fossil figures underline the origin and link our subconscious to nature. Tibus is commonly used as a cake countertop, a tabletop, reception counter, or even as wall elements in the bathroom and shopfitting.
