How to update your home without adding to your carbon footprint

In a world where we are constantly striving to lower our carbon footprint, we don't like throwing things away. But on the other side of the coin, we like to update our style, our tastes and, therefore, our homes. So how do we achieve both?


Well, the easiest (and most budget-friendly) way to revamp your home is to re-think your accessories. Whenever a client wants a quick refresh of their home without breaking the bank, we always suggest updating bits like cushions and rugs, or any ornamental pieces such as photo frames and vases.


But then you don't want to just take a trip to the tip every time you want new ornaments. One easy solution? Candles.


Candles don't have to be cylindrical shapes of wax. They don't even have to look like candles. They can be animals, busts, figurines. They can be whatever colour you want, and whatever shape you like.


And once you want a change, you can just light the candle and then re-do your decor, with nothing having gone into landfill.


Much love, Lucy & Nicky xxx
