I love natural and environmentally friendly fabrics and fibres, with my favourites being linen, wool and silk. The scheme (pictured above) is my ideal eco room setting, which includes lots of eco-fabrics in subtle natural tones, teamed with bright, bold colours such as reds, pinks and blues. For flowing drapes with a crisp feel I have chosen Meridian's Telopea colour Pumice. Telopea, from the Australian Botanicals collection, is a semi-sheer woven in Belgium with 100% eco-linen.

I also love Modern furniture, so for my scheme I have selected Jardan's Archie Chair and Sofa. The Archie range is made with an environmentally sustainable kiln-dried American Oak and uses high-resilience CFC-free polyurethane foam seat. I have chosen to upholster the chair in Meridian's Mallee, also from the the Australian Botanicals collection. Mallee is an upholstery weight 100% eco-linen fabric with a rustic and natural appearance.

To add a bit of zest I have selected Loop's Sateen in either Chilli or Ruby to cover the Archie sofa. Sateen, from the Everyday Objects collection, is an environmentally friendly fabric containing 90% enviro-wool and 10% enviro-nylon. It's suitable for heavy duty use yet has a soft and luxurious handle.

For funky cushions I would choose Mokum's Arabesque colour Red Coral. Arabesque is from Mokum's Maroc Outdoor collection, but is also great for indoors. Arabesque is woven from 100% solution dyed olefin, which can be recycled up to ten times.

For the finishing touch, I have selected an unusual looking accessory, which I found on the Internet, a lamp from Electric Firefly, which contains recycled plastic and provides the ideal light for a relaxing atmosphere.
