"[Sally] recounts how biophilia, the idea that humans are
viscerally wired to feel a communion with the natural world, has
shifted from a hypothesis espoused by the biologist Edward O.
Wilson and others to the emergence of urban beekeeping,
increasingly diverse city gardens and wild ideas for residences and
workplaces."--New York Times
"Coulthard explores ways to harmonize home and the natural word. She covers proper lighting, temperature, and airflow; decorating with natural materials; beneficial colors and patterns, and more."--Publishers Weekly
"In this beautifully illustrated hardback, Coulthard explores the many benefits of biophilic design, drawing on environmental and neuroscientific research to uncover the links between home, health and happiness. A fascinating and uplifting read that looks at the science behind feel good furnishings."--The Independent
