Along with shopping for new items for your home, she will work with your current furniture, blending your favorite things with new accents, giving them a fresh look with new finishes or fabrics. Re-cycling and refurbishing what you have is the heart of green design! “It is always fun to give a wonderful family piece a new life! For one recent project we had a bamboo bed painted with metallic car paint at a body shop…the client loved the sleek new finish on an old favorite…” Joie said.
