Regularly take a slow walk around your home and outdoor areas. Sit in each room. Breathe deeply and notice everything about it, the cracks, the kid’s finger marks on the wall, the beautiful way the sunlight falls into your sitting room in the late afternoon. Remember all of the things that drew you to your home in the first place. Take time to light a candle on the mantle, have coffee on the deck, read a book (or a home mag!) in the reading nook. Take regular time to appreciate the sounds of the birds in the garden, the hum of the distant traffic, and the children in the next room. Smell the roses in the garden, the fresh sheets on the bed and your partner’s warm body next to you at night

By helene | July 20, 2018 | 0

There are so many things to consider when it comes to being sustainable that it can make your head explode!

It’s not fun. It’s not empowering and it’s certainly not as engaging as hosting a well crafted dinner party for your nearest and dearest. Even on those rare occasions when you think you have had a win…

Upholstery Art with Antiquate

By helene | July 13, 2018 | 0

Kerri Hollingsworth from Sustainable home Hub business Antiquate, is not only a furniture restorer, but an incredible artist. Based in Taggerty, Central Victoria, she upholsters furniture with a difference. The materials she uses vary from job to job, but she tries to steer clear of synthetic materials. For example, some upholstered chairs need foam cushions as that is the way they were designed. Others can be built with coconut fibre and cotton batting instead, to limit the use of non biodegradable products. On her own Upholstery Art pieces, she tries to stick to only natural/biodegradable/recycled products. Her most recent design, ‘Autumn’ was completely…
