INTUITIVE - How interior design helps rekindle your intuition
Do you sometimes feel like your inner compass is out of whack? Like the tsunami of information that floods us every day is drowning out your gut feelings or that voice of reason in your head? More and more, people are turning their backs on technology and looking within themselves to find a solution to their problems; they are reconnecting with their own intuition.
Interior design can help with that through the creation of a safe, calm and inspirational space. It’s a powerful tool for peace in our homes, but also in our offices, schools, nursing homes and hotels, for example. After all, introspection should be possible anywhere, at any time.

How interior design taps into intuition
Designers explore forms and textures that bring people back into contact with their intuition. Biophilic design is a favoured method. This trend draws inspiration from nature, involving the selection of soothing colours that are based on warm clay and earth tones complemented by natural greens.

Natural prints as a neutral canvas
Wood patterns, particularly in flooring solutions, are a foolproof way of integrating natural elements into any interior without going overboard.
A natural wood look forms a neutral base for a warm colour palette and surprising textures such as metallic accents. The end result is a space that keeps you grounded.
Combining different types and shades of wood keeps a space interesting without jeopardising the peaceful ambiance.
Rekindle your inner warmth with earth tones
As terra cotta is becoming increasingly popular among designers, orange has truly become the new black. Even better, it pairs perfectly with the warmth of light oak. These two warm shades complement each other and lift each other – and the space they’re in – to the next level.
