Ryves Vale, Tickenham
A scheme that's at one with nature for this revolutionary project with Newland Homes.
Upcycled pieces, sustainable materials, and ethically sourced furnishings are plentiful throughout this sustainable showhome at their new Zero Carbon development.
For the project, I was keen to portray a sustainable lifestyle as well as sustainable design and demonstrate the subtle changes we can make in our everyday lives to be more environmentally conscious.
We purchased furniture that was second hand, sustainably produced, and made from eco-friendly materials to move away from the idea that you always need to buy new. Our kitchen styling reflected meat-free, vegan and plant-based cooking.
I also wanted to show the importance of educating our future generations on the need to protect our natural habitats. We achieved this through the theming in the children’s rooms. As a keen diver, I wanted the teenage boy’s room to demonstrate protecting our oceans. The little girl’s room shows protecting wildlife on land.
The colour palette for this design feels warm and earthy, with botanical and landscape artwork to portray the image of the family that might live in this home. They love exploring and protecting our world. The furniture has a nod to a country feel which goes hand in hand with the beautiful surroundings.
