How to get the biophilic interior design bedroom

Biophilic interior design has caught on and has recently become increasingly popular with more people taking up plants and gardening as a hobby and wanting to connect with nature. The year has already seen the growing popularity of exposed concrete, terracotta and colors inspired by nature. However, with biophilic design giving interior designers creative freedom, it can get a little difficult to plan your bedroom interior design as there is so much information available. We’ve compiled a list of design techniques you can adopt when organizing your space.

Delete technology

In reality, we know that is not possible. While the biophilic style will inspire you to do non-tech related activities, nothing beats a good movie night under the guise. So instead of completely removing your technology, try taking the focus away from it. Long gone are the days when TVs were the focal point of the place. One of the easiest ways to draw attention away from your TV is to mount it on the wall. You can have professionals wall mount your TV by Alternatively, you can hide your TV in your bedroom by building it into a gallery wall or building a bookcase around it.

Instead of technology, make your windows your focal point or make your bed the focal point by choosing eye-catching wallpaper behind the headboard or choosing a brightly colored headboard.


This brings us to a very important part of biophilic interior design – Pattern. Nature inspiring patterns are the way to go in these kind of bedrooms. However, it doesn’t have to be extremely overwhelming if you’re not into that kind of aesthetic. You can instead choose a simple wall design that has been inspired by natural elements like nature, animals, astrology or the universe. Think of patterns other than those in green. Try to avoid green patterns if you are painting your walls with anything other than neutral tones, as you will most likely cause the pattern and colors to clash.

Instead of the wall, you can also make patterns on your headboard or furniture. Choose a simple piece of textured fabric and wrap it over your headboard to create an easy DIY nature-inspired piece. Alternatively, you can opt for wooden furniture that looks like dark wood or colored wooden furniture in bright colors. Experimenting with the look is the best way to go if you don’t choose to go neutral.


Of course, plants are extremely important in biophilic home decor. They freshen the air and act as purifiers. If you have a green thumb or are thinking of getting into plants and gardening, biophilic living will help you understand it more deeply. Adding plants around your bedroom will also make it extremely cozy and comfortable. Try to avoid using fake plants around your space as it will not contribute to biophilic living and will instead make your place look a bit cheap and not very luxurious.

If you’re struggling with plants (or keeping them alive), opt for houseplants and easy-care succulents. Alternatively, you can also grow your plants if you want to save on money. Getting patterned flower pots can also add a layer of depth to your room.

Bring in natural elements

There’s nothing that screams “Nature” like having a water feature in your bedroom. A tabletop fountain or a saltwater aquarium – go wild and add water to your place in a way that makes you feel more connected.

Another way to bring in natural elements is to choose natural minerals in your decor and furnishings. It can be very simple and easy – using natural wood tables or coffee tables, or perhaps a jute rug or, if it goes with your aesthetic, a stone side table – using natural minerals can give your home a very biophilic touch. Go for complexity and don’t worry about lack of uniformity – both of these things are found in abundance in nature and if your home incorporates them, then you’re on the right track.

Use organic shapes

While geometric shapes give a clean and easy look, organic shapes with soft curves add depth to the place and give it more dynamism. They’re not perfect and that’s the whole point – imperfections are what make nature so beautiful and by embracing organic shapes and their imperfections you bring an element of nature into your home. Try to have a more open layout as this will allow you to play with organic furniture and architecture.

If you can’t find inspiration, you can turn to mid-century modern interiors that embrace these kinds of organic shapes.
