Daltile explores the trend "Restorative Nature", which explores the idea that our homes need to provide us with restoration of mind, body and spirit.

“Restorative Nature means first of all being healthy, not only from a physical standpoint, but also from a psychological standpoint," said Laura Grilli, director of product development for Daltile. 

The trend of Restorative Nature incorporates many of the principles of biophilic design which establishes close contact with nature, bringing nature inside our homes to allow us to benefit from the reinvigorating power of nature.

"This trend is all about achieving a more grounded and slower pace of life, focusing on essentials and a deeper connection to the natural world," Grilli said. 

Finding an escape in nature  also means celebrating imperfections, a hallmark of Wabi-Sabi, concluded Grilli.  “This Japanese tradition is a prominent feature of Restorative Nature.  In addition, Restorative Nature is a response to humankind’s separation from nature due to excessive progress. Acknowledging and respecting nature have never been so important.”
