What Houzz contributors are saying:
7. Antidote to stresses and worldly distractions. Architects and researchers in school, hospital and office settings have linked viewing nature to a host of positive health and well-being effects, from physiological responses like decreased blood pressure and other stress markers to increased focus and productivity at school and work. These lessons from commercial design and environmental psychology can be leveraged in the design of our own homes to incorporate interior gardens or even stands of trees in rooms where relaxation or productivity happen, such as bathrooms or offices. I can’t help but wonder if this sparsely furnished room might be where the homeowners go to serenely hash out disagreements.
