How to Create a Biophilic Bedroom in your own Home

1. Bring Nature Inside

The key to creating a biophilic bedroom is to bring nature inside.

Incorporating natural elements into your decor is one of the best ways to do this. Adding plants can make all the difference in making your space feel alive and inviting.

Choose low-maintenance plants like succulents or cacti that won’t require too much care and attention.

Or if you prefer something more vibrant, try adding a few flowering houseplants like orchids or African violets. Not only will they look beautiful, but they will also help purify the air in your home as well!

2. Choose Natural Colors & Textures

When creating a biophilic bedroom, it’s important to choose natural colors and textures that evoke feelings of warmth and coziness. Choose muted earth tones like beige, brown, and green for your walls and bedding.

Try incorporating natural textures like wood furniture or jute rugs into the mix as well for an added touch of warmth.

For added comfort, add throw pillows made from natural fibers such as wool or cotton in shades of cream and grey. This will help create an inviting atmosphere that reflects nature’s calming presence within your home.

3. Incorporate Natural Light

Natural light has many benefits when it comes to creating a biophilic bedroom. Incorporate large windows into the design of your room so that you can take advantage of as much natural light as possible throughout the day.

This will not only make your space feel brighter but also provide you with a better quality of sleep at night since exposure to natural light helps regulate our circadian rhythms (our body’s internal clock).

If you don’t have access to large windows, consider adding lamps with warm-toned LED bulbs which mimic sunlight more closely than traditional incandescent bulbs do.


With these tips for creating a biophilic bedroom oasis, you can get closer to nature without ever leaving home!

By bringing in plants, using natural colors & textures, and incorporating natural light into the design of your room, you can create an inviting atmosphere that reflects nature’s calming presence within your home while providing you with lasting benefits such as improved sleep quality and air quality.
