Overview

Renovation that’s 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. Providing inspiration as well as instruction, Florke shows how everyone can achieve a look that’s both harmonious with the environment and beautiful.

Color photographs show examples of rooms, all radiating country charm, created on a budget, and designed with the three “R”s in mind: restore, reuse, and repurpose. Florke clearly explains why going green is so important, how to use what’s 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.

With its emphasis on simplicity, thrift, and respect for historical integrity, Randy Florke calls his philosophy the "anti-keeping up with the Joneses.” Comfort, style, and economy are the bellwether elements of his approach to decorating.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

We all want to be eco-friendly, but nobody wants to go to the poor house in the process. Country Living Contributing Editor Randy Florke (Your House, Your Home) has constructed a home decorating guide that never relinquishes its twin commitment to sustainability and economy. Restore, Recycle, Repurpose sets its agenda with a mix of photographs, stylish design ideas, thrift-centered tips, and gentle green persuasion. Simplicity, beauty, and comfort—all with a conscience.

Library Journal
Florke (Your House, Your Home) explores decorating every room of the home with flea market finds, a trend that's been popular for years, with an eye toward sustainability. He intersperses his grandmother's advice on household frugality with trivia about waste in the United States. Recommended where green-living guides are popular.
