Research have already proved that landscape had a detrimental impact on human psychology but the extent is still unknown. Human beings have always a tendency to respond to their environment based upon their perception, cognition and spatial behavior. Perception refers to the awareness of a space by information received through sensation of sight, hearing, smell, touch, taste. Cognition is the mental processing of these sensory information whereas spatial behavior refers to the responses and reaction to the environment. The task of an interior designer is to create an environmental stimuli to respond these psychological stages as well as the secondary processes of effect, motivation and development. Most of the architectural features that are related to landscape design that directly or indirectly affects the user perception, need to consider its type, color, texture and finishes of these materials which are responsible to create the internal environment of such spaces. Plants always bestow intangible benefits to mankind in one or the other ways. Physically contributing cleaner and healthier air, they improve our comfort and well-being by making surrounding pleasant and calm. Interior landscaping have always a positive impact of reducing stress, increase pain tolerance and improve productivity of people. The paper aims at understanding the impact of green spaces and its effects on human psychology. It further explains about various types of interior landscaping and its integration within a built environment to enhance the experience of these spaces. The paper concludes with formulation of guidelines that are to be considered in designing interior spaces where interior landscaping is an integral part of the spatial design.
