Interior designing for well-being requires the blended knowledge and expertise of designers, sustainability engineers and healthcare practitioners. At Harleen McLean we bring together an A list team to deliver a design for well-being code applicable to every interior. Creating our signature emotionally intelligent interior designs to support personal well-being in spaces we live and work. 


The art of interior designing for well-being 

Designing for well-being helps improve personal relationships, sleeping patterns, living habits and productivity at work. Known as Biophilic Design when connecting us with nature, it can help reduce stress, improve brain function and creativity, improve our overall well-being, and expedite healing. An experience of nature can swiftly elicit a restorative response and is essential for providing people opportunities to live and work in healthy and stress free spaces. Designing for well-being articulates and strengthens the relationships between nature, science, and the built environment so we may experience the human benefits of Biophilia in our design applications.

 Here are some examples of how Harleen Mclean Interiors can move into your home or workspace. 

Eat Well

Where you cook and eat is the new social space. Designs to accentuate the conviviality of a meal and to develop human relationship when coming together. Well designed dining spaces to promote more mindful eating habits leading to better digestion and healthier living.

Sleep Deep

New age habits disturb essential sleep time. A more mindful design surrounding the space you sleep in, with our signature “thought dimmers”, can promote regular sleep patterns and helps support solutions for disturbed sleep and insomnia.

Rest Easy

If your work life is stressful, then your home or living space must counter this by being a sanctuary for emotional restoration. Designing for a better living space provides for lower instances of tension, anxiety, anger, fatigue, confusion, and total mood fluctuations.

Work Space

Office work often involves carrying out repetitive tasks which can  be energy intensive, and over time can result in mental fatigue.

Our designs respond with staff aural, musculoskeletal, respiratory, circadian systems, and overall physical comfort. Emotionally intelligent designs provide opportunities for mental restoration and routine retreat whilst at work including relaxation of muscles, lowering of diastolic blood pressure and stress hormone (i.e. cortisol) levels in the blood stream. Subconsciously, they are creating the deep affiliations humans have with other life forms and nature attracting and positive feelings that people have toward their natural surroundings and the “love of life”.

This increases staff productivity and staff morale and provides a better place to work.

We remain committed to working with your internal state to transform your interior space towards improving your well-being and the well-being of the people around you. If this resonates with you contact us today.
