It is the time of year where we start to think about spending time with family, taking some down time, and for many of us, getting stuck into some projects around the house! Do you have any planned? Perhaps our Community DIY Painted Feet Chair! I have been looking around at what is trending for 2014 and am sharing some of my favourite picks in sustainable interior decorating at the moment.
I am looking forward to some blogging thinking time, planning all the posts and exciting things for next year, including some fab Communty DIY Challenges, some amazing Creatives and cool Homewares features, plus tours of homes in SA which feature a sustainable approach in their decorating. And, excitingly for me, getting stuck into my Interior Design course with the International School of Colour and Design which I have recently begun! I feel very grateful for having met so many wonderful creative people through Recycled Interiors and connecting with so many of you out there!
I will be posting some of my learning as I go and am also looking for people in Adelaide or surrounds, who would be interested in letting me work with them (for free!) on the decorating of a space in your home, so I can build my portfolio. I will be taking (of course) a sustainable approach, so my Interior Styling and Decorating Practice (when I get through the course!) will be all about use of homewares and products such as paints, wallpapers, rugs etc which have been made with sustainability and health of people and environment in mind. I will work with vintage pieces, upcycled and handcrafted pieces available in all the wonderful homewares stores now, both locally and online and will be building my connections with these businesses so I can source pieces for you. I am very excited about being able to get some hands on experience while I am learning so if you would be interested let me know!
