How To Get The Biophilic Interior Design Bedroom

Biophilic interior design has been making its rounds and has recently become increasingly popular with more people getting into plants and gardening as a hobby and wanting to establish a connection with nature. The year has already seen the increasing popularity of exposed concrete, terracotta and nature-inspired colours. However, with biophilic design giving interior designers creative freedom, it can become a little difficult to plan your bedroom’s interior design as there is so much information out there. We have compiled a list of design techniques you can adopt when organizing your space

Remove the technology

Realistically, we know this is not possible. While biophilic style will inspire you to do non-technology related activities, nothing beats a good movie night under the cover. So, instead of completely removing your technology, try to remove the focus from it. Long gone are the days when TVs were the focal point of the place. One of the easiest ways to remove attention from your TV is by wall-mounting it. You can have professionals wall mount your TV by Alternatively, you can disguise your TV in your room by making it a part of a gallery wall or by building a bookcase around it.

Instead of technology, make your windows your focal point or make your bed the focal point by choosing a wallpaper that draws attention behind the headboard or choosing a brightly coloured headboard. 


This brings us to a very important part of biophilic interior design- Pattern. Nature inspires patterns is the way to go in these kinds of bedrooms. However, it does not have to be extremely overwhelming if you are not into that kind of aesthetics. You can instead choose a simple mural pattern that has been inspired by natural elements like nature, animals, astrology or the universe. Think of patterns other than the ones in green. Try to avoid green patterns if you are painting your walls anything other than neutrals as you will most likely cause a clash between the pattern and the colours.

Instead of the wall, you can also make your headboard or your furniture patterned. Choose a simple textured piece of fabric and wrap it over your headboard to create an easy DIY nature-inspired piece. Alternatively, you can opt for wooden furniture that resembles dark wood or colour wooden furniture in bright colours. Experimenting with the look is the best way to go about if you are not opting to go neutral


Of course, plants are extremely important in biophilic interior design. They freshen up 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 in-depth. Adding plants around your bedroom will also make it feel extremely cosy and comfortable. Try to avoid using fake plants around your space as it will not contribute to biophilic living, and would rather make your place look a little cheap and not very luxurious. 

If you struggle with plants (or keeping them alive), go for easy to maintain house plants and succulents. Alternatively, you can also grow your plants if you want to save up on the money. Getting patterned plant pots can also add a layer of depth to your room. 

Bring in natural elements

There is nothing that screams “Nature” than 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 by choosing natural minerals in your décor and furnishings. This can be very simple and easy- using natural wood tables or coffee tables, or maybe 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 the lack of uniformity- these two things are found in abundance in nature and if your home incorporates them, then you are on the right path.

Use organic shapes

While geometrical shapes give a clean and easy look, organic shapes with soft curves add depth to the place and provide it with more dynamic. They are not perfect and that is the whole point- imperfections are what makes nature so beautiful and by embracing organic shapes and their imperfections, you are bringing an element of nature into your home. Try to have a more open layout as it will allow you to play with organic furnishings and architecture. 

If you are unable to find inspiration, you can turn to the mid-century modern interior designs that embrace these kinds of organic shapes.
