Bookstore Decorated with Recycled Books

I found these pictures on Inhabitat blog. I know everybody is feeling down about the recession, but I feel that we are going through a correction in a time of over indulgence. 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.


They used the pages of old books to wall paper the wall.

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 adds texture to the design. This type of application I could see on a boys 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.
