Hi I’m Elizabeth. I have an interest in sustainable interiors after being inspired to do a project that is on the horizon and I started this blog as a space, where I share sourcing and inspiration for those interested in sustainable interior design. I myself am a designer and very much enjoy writing. Having also worked on FF&E for high end interior projects, I have seen the waste and choices that are impacting the environment and our well being in those spaces. There are some great evolving companies and designers making some wonderful sustainable, eco-friendly products and offerings, that over time I hope to write about. So if you would like to be featured or have a recommendation do get in touch, I’d love to share your story,project, products or passion however small.
Our environment is experiencing profound transformation. Oceans are swimming in plastic, forests and woodlands have been plundered and flattened, ecosystems are being annihilated, and animal species are on the brink of extinction.
At this moment in time, when plastic reigns as king, it’s almost impossible to live a perfectly green lifestyle. True, many of us dream of ecologically friendly homes and interiors which promote non-toxic materials and feel-good finishes. But these dreams usually come with a hefty price tag. Despite this, we can all make a difference. By cultivating our vision, educating our communities, and innovating like never before, we become the change we always dreamed about – no matter how big or small.
For consumers, change starts in the home and the spaces we inhabit. Sustainability is not merely a lifestyle choice but a life essential. When we contemplate the manufacturing processes of every item we purchase, a new consciousness comes into play. Ask yourself this: would you rather buy an artisan product, made ethically and with passion, or one that was created using immoral practices and heartbreaking slave labour?
I started the Sustainable Interior Design blog to cut through the highbrow ‘green police elitism’ that often pervades the industry. I wanted to offer crucial information that was easily accessible by you — the change makers. We are only buds at this stage. But like all buds, beautiful blooms follow. Join us as we warm hearts and change minds, transforming our homes for a truly harmonious future. Alone we are one. Together we are powerful – the custodians of the planet and the spaces we inhabit. Let’s cultivate something authentic and amazing. Ready to make it happen?
