When TV designer Oliver Heath was called in to design the interiors for an extension to BedZED, the UK’s largest eco village, Earthborn paints were high on his specification list.
Oliver Heath was chosen to create interiors for a new show home, exhibition area and reception because of his reputation for sustainable interiors.
BedZED (Beddington Zero Energy Development) is located in Wallington, South London, and comprises 100 homes, community facilities and workspace.
This multi award winning development demonstrates that eco-construction and green lifestyles can be easy, accessible, affordable and provide a good quality of life.
BedZED’s popularity with visitors meant that it needed additional facilities, in particular, a new show home where people can discover how changes you make to your life can reduce your environmental impact.
Oliver drew his inspiration for the show home interior from a sense of nature.
The walls feature natural muted shades of Earthborn Claypaint, specified by Oliver to complement the light within the property and mixed to the required shade by Earthborn’s bespoke tinting service.
Earthborn was specified not only for its green credentials but also because it is perfect for the building’s tightly controlled environment. It has excellent humidity balancing properties thanks to a technologically advanced formulation which makes it highly breathable.
