Audi Snÿman Interior Design - Sustainability with StyleTake Care

Says Audi Snÿman of Audi Snÿman Interior Design, “I think it is incredibly important to contribute to the preservation of our environment, in every aspect of our lives. We need to be responsible, not only in our purchasing choices, but be mindful and considerate in our shopping habits too. Therefore, if a desired item is not immediately available, I will always suggest to my clients that we wait, and don’t, in the interim, make do with a cheaper item that will eventually need to be discarded.”

Make good choices

Audi Snÿman Interior Design’s Snÿman says, “Opting for quality that lasts is certainly one of the ways we can minimise our impact. As is buying furniture that is made from natural materials (like rattan or bamboo); or investing in antiques (that are really built to last); or even having a local carpenter handcraft a piece of furniture for you from reclaimed wood. “Handmade pieces often have less impact on the environment, not only because of the way they are made, but also because of the way they are prepared or treated – the production footprint is usually smaller.”

Old is new again

Audi Snÿman Interior Design’s Snÿman adds, “Reusing and repurposing old furniture that is structurally sound is a definite ‘green’ habit, made even more special when the items have a wonderful backstory. In my many years as an interior designer I’ve heard some truly amazing family stories and special memories associated with collectors’ items and antiques. And often they need just a little bit of
restorative work, or new upholstery, to shine again.”
