Renovation thatâs eco-friendly AND economically smart
From Country Living contributing editor Randy Florke (Your House, Your Home) comes a gorgeous guide to decorating sustainably and inexpensively.Â Providing inspiration as well as instruction, Florke shows how everyone can achieve a look thatâs both harmonious with the environment and beautiful.Â
Â Color photographs show examples of rooms, all radiating country charm, created on a budget, and designed with the three Râs in mind: restore, reuse, and repurpose. Florke clearly explains why going green is so important, how to use whatâs already there, find a focus for every space, and determine what makes something environmentally friendly.
Anyone hoping to transform a home from ordinary to extraordinary will find eco-friendly, thrifty, and stylish ideas. Â Â
With its emphasis on simplicity, thrift, and respect for historical integrity, Randy Florke calls his philosophy the "anti-keeping up with the Joneses.â Â Comfort, style, and economy are the bellwether elements of his approach to decorating.
