It is with great pleasure that I announce my online course, Biophilic Colour for Interiors – what nature can teach us about colour.
This online colour course explores our human-nature-colour relationship, from both biophilic and psychological perspectives, and sets you up with the tools to discover which harmonious colours resonate with you and have the power to positively affect your emotional wellbeing in your home.
The course is packed with beautiful visuals and hands-on creative tasks to lead you through an exploratory experience of colour in nature. Bringing together evidence from the fields of colour psychology and Biophilic design in a new and unique way I will show you what nature can teach us about colour. You'll also explores the application of colour in interiors and bring all this learned knowledge together to confidently create your own Biophilic Interiors Scheme.
As a textile designer and colour consultant with seventeen years design and colour experience, I want to share with you how an understanding of colour and light in nature can empower you to confidently design harmonious and emotionally supportive colour schemes for interiors.
Do you feel the benefit of being in nature? Do you want to bring this feeling into your home?
Human’s love of nature and connection with nature (Biophilia) has been shown to bring great benefit to our wellbeing. Nature's array of multi-sensory elements that intrinsically connect us to the natural world can be used to support our wellbeing at home - from greenery and fresh air, to nature's patterns and diverse, layered textures, and COLOUR. Colour is a really powerful and accessible way for all of us to bring reminders of nature into our homes.
Working with colour can mystify some people, but nature presents us with an amazing design resource and shows us how to put colours together to create harmonious colour schemes that can have a very powerful affect on our mood and how we feel in our homes.
