London-based design studio Run For The Hills has created the bedroom of a five-year old eco-warrior, demonstrating that stunning design and caring about the environment by using sustainable and recycled materials can go hand in hand.

The ‘Into the Wild’ room, an urban wonderland bedroom, formed part of a concept house at Decorex, held recently at London’s Olympia, featuriing interconnecting rooms by a number of leading interior design companies.

The bedroom, which has an overarching theme of rebellion and environmentalism, provides aheady mix of childhood fantasy meets rock and roll 1970s nostalgia. 

Many of the products and suppliers used have sustainability at their core.

One of the hero pieces is the Princess and the Pea bed. The mattress is a truly 100 per cent sustainable, eco-friendly organic product while the base is made by hand in Devon by NatureMat. 

A Twig side table by Pinch Design has been made from coppiced hazel, while Fibre Flooring provided the biodegradable flooring.

Layered Way rugs from Ferm Living are made entirely from used plastic bottles, and The Good & Mojo Kalimantan wall light by Houseology is made solely of sustainable and recycled materials.

The paint by Earthborn is free from oils, acrylic and vinyl with no added VOCs and synthetic ingredients are kept to a minimum.

Real tree stems and branches, from Cameron Landscapes, sprout from the corners of the room, supporting a sheer gauze fabric, featuring an atmospheric, dream-like, shadow puppet projection animation.

This was created by Run For The Hills’ graphic design team led by Creative Director Chris Trotman, transporting visitors into a world of fictional stories and real life heroes.

The creative imagery used in the animated projection is also referenced in art prints on the walls and a series of specially designed mini eco-warrior T-shirts, designed by the studio’s in-house artists.

The room also provides a platform for some custom artist and maker collaborations, and unique products.

These include the Princess and the Pea bed in partnership with Corsets & Creations, a custom-made balloon installation from Pop Pop Papier, sequin wall by Tracy Kendall and trapeze-style, pink tube lights from Nulty Bespoke.

Run For The Hills’ Creative Director and co-founder, Anna Burles, says, “They say
it is the young, eco-crisis generation who will save the planet, pointing the finger at us and telling us to wake up and join their rebellion.

“We want to bring that story of hope to life, woven through our room set via the eco-conscious brands we have collaborated with and custom design details like our bespoke T-shirt designs on the clothes rail and a curated selection of kid’s books including The Tantrum That Saved The Earth and Rules For Living on Planet Earth.

Anna adds, “It’s time for all of us to embrace the power and responsibility of our role in design, showcasing sustainable products and ‘hero-ing’ suppliers and makers who care deeply about the way they do things, fashioning interesting and thoughtful
things in the eco-space. Our set is designed to show that worthy doesn’t compromise one bit on wow factor.”
