The buzz words in the world of interior design right now, are sustainability and eco lifestyle. More and more designers are embracing the ethos of reduce, reuse and recycle in their schemes.

Colour trend predictions for 2023 continue to see us moving away from the cooler greys in our homes, to warmer pallets of browns, creams, and the warm colours of a sunset, still interjected with the blues we’ve come to love over the last few years.

Nature and our environment will still play an important part, with predictions of more natural materials such as marble, stone, cork and sisal.

However, with the rising fuel bills, inflation, and general cost of living, how can we achieve these styles without spending a large budget? One of the trends coming out of the desire for a more sustainable lifestyle is upcycling furniture, either by buying second-hand, or upcycling the furniture we already have in our homes.

“Why buy new when you can refurbish”?

So, dust off that old chest of drawers that have been languishing at the back of your garage for the last 20 years and bring them back into your house! Or why not refresh your beautiful sideboard and instantly update your room. Give them a paint with a pop of colour and change the handles and you will have transformed it into a statement piece for your home.

Using old pieces of furniture adds your own personality to your interior, why have the same as everyone else? Afterall,your home is YOUR castle… not everyone else’s and it should reflect your style and taste.
