Recycled Ideas for Creating a Dream Bedroom

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

At Eat Sleep Live we use reclaimed wood to make our beautiful furniture.  Our wood has already had a life possibly in a school or factory.  We believe it is important to take something to take and turn it into something new, giving it a new start in life. In the the journey from creating something from old to new, you can add your own personal tastes and style. This great wallpaper has been made to resemble recycled timber.

There are many types of eco-flooring such as bamboo, cork, rubber, all beautiful in their design and finish.  Wooden flooring can also be reclaimed, we just couldn't resit this parque flooring.
