I had never hear of biophillic. But i think the word could be applied to why I feel so great in my Hawaii home; the windows and doors are always open and you feel you are part of nature. When it rains you can't hear yourself talk, you hear the rain and feel like your outside in it! When it's breezy you feel it; when the turkeys are strutting down the street, you hear them. Nature is outside every window and you feel a part of it. It is very pleasant compared to other places I have lived.

I love "the rug"! I have never lived in a room that could hold that rug and probably never will, but I am already thinking of ways to interpret that rug in my garden so I can enjoy it in my outdoor living room.

The textured green rug and a leather one could be a trip hazard. I have a leather shag rug and have almost broken my toe when it got caught in the leather strips and my little dog thinks its her personal jerky smorgasbord : ( But, I love it anyway.
