Into The Wild…

In 2019 we unveiled our design of a children’s bedroom at Decorex, encap­su­lat­ing a strong sus­tain­abil­i­ty message whilst show­cas­ing how to make caring for the envi­ron­ment super stylish. Our room set, named ‘Into the Wild’, is one of a handful of inter­con­nect­ing rooms designed by a select group of leading interior design practices at Decorex.

The Concept…

‘Into the Wild’ is the urban won­der­land bedroom of a five-year-old eco-warrior. It’s an edgy, cool, fashion-forward mini person’s space. A heady mix of childhood fantasy meets rock and roll 1970s nostalgia. Crucially, the room has an over­ar­ch­ing theme of rebellion and envi­ron­men­tal­ism. 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.

Sexy Sustainability…

Many of the products and suppliers used within the set have sus­tain­abil­i­ty at their core. One of the hero pieces within the set is the “Princess and the Pea” bed. The mattress is a truly 100% sus­tain­able, eco-friendly organic product and the bed base is made by hand in Devon by NatureMat. Beside the bed is a Twig side table from Pinch Design, made from coppiced hazel. Nestled beneath the bed, on biodegrad­able flooring from Fibre Flooring, are layered ‘Way’ rugs from Ferm Living, made entirely from used plastic bottles. 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 is kept to a minimum.

Real tree stems and branches, from Cameron Landscapes, ‘grow’ up from the corners of the room, holding up a sheer gauze fabric, featuring an atmos­pher­ic, dream-like shadow puppet pro­jec­tion animation we designed that 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, again created espe­cial­ly for the room set.

The studio is also excited to reveal some custom artist/maker col­lab­o­ra­tions and unique products — specially designed for the Decorex set. Including the Princess and the Pea bed in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Corsets & Creations, a custom-made balloon instal­la­tion from Pop Pop Papier, sequin wall instal­la­tion from Tracy Kendall and custom trapeze-style, pink tube lights from Nulty Bespoke above the bed.
