As time goes on, more of us are thinking about recycling and how to be more eco-friendly. Unfortunately, in the past, the aesthetic appeal let it down slightly. But, now as we are all much more aware of our environment we want to protect it. And now there are many designers who have created so many beautiful things for you to bring into your own home. One of these designers is Oliver Heath who helps with lighting, colour and structural changes to make a home more sustainable. He is a trusted expert, and has appeared on TV and as well as being the author of some fantastic design books such as ‘Urban Eco Chic’ and ‘Home Book’.
There is also a brilliant site called EcoCentric that offers many different home decoration, accessories and homewares that are all organic and at an affordable price.
There are so many novel and unique items that are available now:
Some really sweet place matts and coasters from Nestify Online designed by Rani Deshpande. They are made from paper, and once they have been used they can be planted to produce some beautiful wildflowers in your garden!
These are the wonderful Liqui Baglights with different prints on them that lets a warm light glow through. They also use energy saving bulbs. These bags are also on sale at Lluster (yet another link to their fab site!). Grab one while you can!
I’ve also found a brilliant site, E-side that sell all sorts of furniture and homewares that have been recycled and are eco-friendly. They are all made to a high standard and are lovely and would look great in any home. I hope these new interior design wants will become musts for every newly built home, and we will all live a much cleaner life style!
