Green / Sustainable Home Decorating Tips | Interior Design


So green and actually green design as sustainable,
not green the color is actually easy to achieve. There’s a couple of tips that you should probably
stick to. One is reusing. So if you have items around the home or maybe
going to an antique store or maybe going to a garage sale, reuse what somebody else no
longer needs, or what you’re bored of in one room, put it in another room. That’s saves on energy and having to make
new pieces of furniture and it really saves the environment. Two is go local. Why go all the way to China for something
and you’re using precious oils and energies and manpower to get it here when it’s already
around you. And you’d be surprised what’s around you,
if you just walk around your neighborhood. Even using the internet to find things that
are around you. Three, make sure you’re worrying about the
energy that you consume. So light bulbs, you want to make sure that
they’re energy efficient when possible. Make sure to turn off the lights when you
leave a room. You know, different materials that you’re
using. You know, why use synthetics when you can
use things like cottons and linens and wool’s? Not only will they last a really long time,
but they’re beautiful. And so, you don’t have to worry about the
initial cost that you’re putting into them, because they’re going to last a lot longer
than something that’s synthetic, anyway. There are some really big ideas in little
ways and movements. Don’t feel like you have to go out and just
totally do a solar panel on every room in your house to go green. You can use little things and the little decisions
to make up a sustainable design element. So those are my tips for sustainable design,
and use it every day, a little bit goes a long way in green.
