Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Renovation that's eco-friendly...AND economically smart

From Country Living contributing editor Randy Florke ( Your House, Your Home ) comes a gorgeous guide to decorating sustainably and inexpensively. Providing inspiration as well as instruction, Florke shows how everyone can achieve a look that's both harmonious with the environment and beautiful.

Color photographs show examples of rooms, all radiating country charm, created on a budget, and designed with the three "R"s in mind: restore, reuse, and repurpose . Florke clearly explains why going green is so important, how to use what's already there, find a focus for every space, and determine what makes something environmentally friendly.

Anyone hoping to transform a home from ordinary to extraordinary will find eco-friendly, thrifty, and stylish ideas.

With its emphasis on simplicity, thrift, and respect for historical integrity, Randy Florke calls his philosophy the "anti-keeping up with the Joneses." Comfort, style, and economy are the bellwether elements of his approach to decorating.

"A Country living book."

Includes bibliographical references (p. 186-187) and index.
