There are a variety of different reasons why items are green in this teenage girl’s bedroom. Everything from fabrics being made from organic fibers and non-toxic dyes, to items being recycled into new decorative pieces, artwork being made from things that would have been thrown away, pillows being made in an environment where not only is everything organic and healthy, made from local wool, made on hand powered looms also creating an income for woman in another country. Items are also made locally from local material. The room itself is also designed to not just be comfortable for a teenage girl but for the room to easily be used as a guest room once the girl has moved out of the house with out having to redecorate.
The teenage girl’s bedroom is designed as a healthy oasis for a creative teenage girl to grow and evolve. The room is a tribute to what inspires this young lady to reach for her dreams being in an interactive environment that is inspiring due to each piece that is present in the room having their own story that supports a healthy sustainable environment in someway or another. The colors of this room are inspired from the earth itself strongly using browns, greens, blues with pops of other beautiful colors as accents.
