Reduce, Reuse and Recycle: the three R´s. 

In homify we think that these three actions are the pilars of sustainability and responsible consumption and at the same time, they are the key for intelligent decoration. 

We need to realize that the decoration of our homes is what makes us feel comfortable. But if the decoration we want to do depends exclusively on whether we have money or not, it will surely make us unhappy. Feeling comfortable in the place where we live is paramount, with or without money and with ingenuity and desire it is possible to decorate the house without spending even a single dollar.  

In this ideabook we give you several ideas to achieve it. Let´s start!

1. Indoor gardens

Natural plants and flowers are a fundamental part of a house with good energy. They brighten the environment and decorate the place with a natural beauty and charm.

You will be surprised to realize that you have a plethora of things that can be reused and will give a new style to your house without spending money.

3. Decorating with books and magazines

There is no need to buy objects or new elements of decoration, when you can take some of those good looking books from the library and sport them at the coffee table, so that they are not only more available to browse, but to decorate a corner or that empty space that you did not know what to fill with.

The living room and bedrooms are good places to place books and have them well at hand. A good idea is to create harmony between the covers of the books and other decorative elements of the space, such as flowers or the furniture.
