Eco Chic Design by Emily Anderson
When it comes to green lifestyles, there's often a pretty serious aesthetic schism: on one hand, there are the crafters who prefer to make almost everything by hand, and on the other, high-end green consumers purchase luxury products with sustainable pedigrees. For those who long to bring the worlds of DIY and eco-chic closer together, designer Emily Anderson is a welcome voice of experience and innovation. In 2007 she published a book called Eco-Chic Weddings, advising couples about how they could create the weddings of their dreams without sacrificing their principles. The book was such a success that she followed the project up with an Eco-Chic Wedding blog, where readers can stay up to date on the latest trends in weddings and Anderson's recent projects. Fans of Eco-Chic Weddings who like to bring the same sustainable style sense to their daily lives may be excited to learn that a new book, Eco-Chic Homes, will be hitting the shelves this spring. Here, readers will find a wide variety of high-style projects for reducing, reusing, and recycling in every area of the home. Can't wait to get your hands on this book? Apparently the accompanying blog will be featuring related home projects and updates in the meantime.
