Neurointeriorism, investigates from science and the experience of the inhabitants, how interior design impacts on emotions.

The interior design of a house influences the thoughts, emotions and actions of the person using it. For Le Corbusier "The house must be the case of life, the machine of happiness". This pandemic has made us see that a fundamental part of our happiness lies in the spaces that we have had to live in for a long period of time. 

During confinement, we have become aware of the shortcomings of the home and what we really need to feel at home.

Science has shown that we make more oxytocin and serotonin, related to relaxation and enjoyment, if our environments are pleasant. If we apply this information to interior design, whatever the function of the space to be transformed, we will manage to have homes that give us greater emotional satisfaction.

The task of interior designers and decorators is to design homes where well-being reigns. In these days of confinement, many of the mistakes that have been made in residential architecture for not taking into account the needs of those who live in these spaces have come to light.

The world of retail, shops, hotels and restaurants have been aware of the influence that space has on emotions and have taken much more care in hiring interior design studios to improve the customer experience in the establishment. The right mix of style and good sensations is a safe bet.

There is still a lot to do in home interior design. Light, colour, temperature, sounds, air, ventilation, materials, plants... there are many factors to consider. It is a question of going one step beyond decoration and investigating what specific effect spaces have on stress, hormones and the type of thoughts we generate.

If our goal is to sleep better, we will manipulate space to help you fall asleep. If our goal is to be creative, we will manipulate space to increase our creativity.

Neurointeriorism is a discipline that will be increasingly present in the design of the home as it has been with Neuromarketing in the analysis of the behavior of the brain in the purchasing process. 

The house has a great influence on our day-to-day life and on our lives. Applying Neuroscience to architecture and interior design, we manage to create spaces, both inside and outside the home, that can conceive pleasant and welcoming environments for the person who lives there, without being aware of it.
