Inspirational Ideas For a Beautiful & Sustainable Home
Anyone who has read any of Selina’s other nine books will know they are in for a visual treat with this one. Originally a Stylist, it was well into her career that Selina became an author and Columnist. She writes a regular column for Modern Gardens magazine and styles for many other homes magazines.
This book couldn’t have come at a more prescient moment, with any right thinking person looking for ways to live a more sustainable life.
Starting with Inspirations, Selina explains her own desire to live a greener life. She looks at the ingredients that go to make a Natural Living Style Look, including recyclables such as glass and metal, eco-friendly materials such as cork and rattan and natural fibres, including cotton and linen. She discusses repurposing and up-cycling and looks at environmentally friendly decorative details, such as flowers and plants.
The second chapter, Natural Living Spaces, shows how sustainability and style can go hand in hand in different areas of the house, including living rooms, kitchens, bathrooms bedrooms home offices and utility rooms.
In Natural Gardens, Selina discusses green gardening and growing your own fruit, veg and flowers.
At the end of the book, a sources section helps readers to create a natural home of their own. Throughout, eco-friendly tips and hints will inspire anyone who wants to lighten their footprint on the planet.
