We have an inherent connection to the natural world, yet we are living increasingly urban and digital lifestyles, further and further removed from natural habitats. Even a short time spent close to nature can result in an improved sense of well-being and designers are increasingly responding to 'nature deficit'. They are tuning interiors into green oases; calm refuges from hard, cold and industrial urban landscapes. Green, the most restful color to view, is used in design to replenish, nourish and energize our minds and bodies. Lush, tone-on-tone green hues are used to provide a healing, therapeutic and refreshing quality to spaces and products, while textual elements that replicate or mimic nature provide a rich, indulgent feel. Dark forest and tropical greens are mixed with dusty roses to add warmth to heavy, luxe fabrics.
