I know everybody is feeling down about the recession, but I feel that we are going through a correction in a time of overindulgence. When I see a project like this it gives me hope to know that as humans, as Americans, we can correct a wrong.
There are so many ways we can recycle and you would never think about using recycled material in interior decorating, but I have for years and it can be very cool.
This is a small commercial office I did and I used torn pieces of brown wrapping paper to dress the walls. The torn edges and overlapping of the paper add texture to the design. This type of application I could see on a boy’s bedroom wall.
In the same commercial space, I used recycled Chicago brick to create a dramatic entry to this high-end appliance showroom.
If we all give some thought to recycling I think we can be very creative in decorating our homes and offices and feel good about it at the same time.
