"Our favorite stylist is back--we can't stop drooling over Selina Lake's new book..." Mollie Makes

In Inspirations, Selina starts by revealing the concepts that inspire her: natural decor, living simply, mindful consumption, recycling, upcycling, and reducing plastic waste. She looks at materials suited to the natural living look, including wood, bamboo, cork, recycled glass, and upcycled materials. In Textures, she focuses on organic fabrics, fibers such as coir and rattan, and eco-friendly paint. Finally, she shows how to style the home using lighting, decorative objects, vintage pieces, garden flowers, and house plants. In the second section, Natural Living Spaces, Selina shows how sustainability and style can go hand in hand in living rooms, kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms, home offices, and even utility rooms. In The Natural Garden, she steps outside to discuss green gardening, growing your own produce, and venturing further afield to camp, travel, and explore. Throughout, eco-friendly tips and hints will inspire those who want to lighten their footprint on the planet. Last but not least, the Natural Resources section will help readers get the look and create a sustainable, eco-friendly home of their own.
