A New Magazine to Inspire You

A new magazine celebrates green living, revamping old to new…in a beautiful way!

2009 saw many design magazines come and go – Domino, O at Home, Cottage Living, Southern Accents and many others bit the dust this past year. But yet there are some intrepid publishers that still want to enter these treacherous waters!

One magazine is called Flea Market Style. I love the magazine because it helps us stay “green” by using our own or others’ castoffs in new and beautiful ways. I pick up many “found on the side of the road” items and I repaint, stencil and handpaint them back into loveable objects – but this magazine really does a beautiful job of it.

Another idea is the creative reuse of an old lantern that is no longer functional. It combines using some things that you would otherwise toss out – old wallpaper and lighting.

I always encourage my clients to ferret out things that have been banished to the basement, attic or garage – because there’s “gold” lurking there! So – reuse, save money – and have beautiful “green” homes!
