The Benefits of Natural, Earthy Tones
The design of your workspace plays a heavy role in the quality of the work you produce. We, as humans, are hugely impacted by the colors and design that surrounds us, as it affects us on an emotional, mental and physical level. Today, we will be discussing how to add earth tones to your interior design, the benefits of doing so, and other elements to consider.
Earth tones in interior design, as well as the use of wood in interior design, can be incredibly enticing when done right. There are also various psychological benefits to incorporating natural tones to your space. Often overlooked in comparison to bright pops of color, neutral shades deserve their own spotlight, too! Before we get into the specifics of wood elements in design, here are some overarching benefits to choosing a more neutral and natural toned path for your design:
Incorporating Wood Accents into Your Space
We’re sure you’ve heard the term ‘feng shui’ when it comes to interior design. When you think of feng shui, images of water fountains, lucky bamboo plants, and Chinese coins may pop into your mind. These objects are definitely ways we can create “better” feng shui, but the philosophy of feng shui expands far beyond these stereotypes.
Interior design can be used as a way to encourage your work to flow better and connect with the environment around you. When it comes to feng shui design, there are five elements: earth, metal, water, wood and fire. Today, we will be focusing on wood and how to incorporate some of our products that feature a more earthy aesthetic. The wood element represents vitality, growth and kindness. At Waddell, we incorporate as many sustainably chosen, earthy elements as we can. Here are a few of our products that highlight the beauty of wood:
• Define possesses double-sided functionality, including a bench, shelving, storage, tackable surfaces, power integration, a TV monitor and biophilic components to add greenery! Additionally, Define is a modern solution to space partitioning, and is still fully modular and offers multiple storage and power benefits. Composed of glassboard writing surfaces (that will not ghost, stain or scratch!), tackable surfaces and acoustic boards to reduce sound, Define approaches form and function in a whole new way.
• Pallet Space Division Furniture, Pallet Wall and Pallet Mobile are all part of our collection that is fully configurable and all three pieces offer a massive variety of functionality.
The benefits of connecting an indoor office space to nature inspired colors and elements are numerous. From small decorating choices to major landscaping projects, there are plenty of ways that offices can be brought closer to nature. For example, simply choosing a color scheme for the office that reflects natural elements such as earth tones and greens can help create a subtle connection to nature as well as adding natural elements like wood. These subtle changes can give a whole new depth to your workspace, giving you and others new levels of productivity, increased focus and better ability to collaborate with one another.
