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.

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.
