It is predicted that in the future more and more people will move to the big cities and that will require a bit of effort from all of us, not least because we have to squeeze ourselves into smaller homes, but also because we have to protect and preserve our environment as intact as possible. It is well known that the more people crowded in a small area (as in a big city), the more damaging it is to our environment.
Living in less space, requires interior and design because it must be less, but more spacious. And now there is a clear trend that paves the way: We clean up, throw out and make room, and we make room for more and more eco-friendly recycling of both furniture and artwork in our homes. Big thumbs up for it!
To clean up and throw out is the big trend, like recycling is also huge. And it’s all about staying smaller and with fewer things and do not signal the same kind of materialism as before the crisis. This is a trend that I love and as I practice in my home in Barcelona, and it is a trend that I hope I will keep with me in my future home decor also.
The respected photographer and former supermodel Helena Christensen was thinking green long before sustainability and environmental awareness became part of a common vocabulary. She mixes charming vintage with green solutions in his country house. Have a look inside Helena Christensens green eco friendly home (photos above).
