Livening up your closet doesn’t mean you have to feel guilty about utilizing the planet’s resources. Here are a few ways to incorporate sustainability into your closet.

Natural Fibers

It used to be that natural fibers were synonymous with itchy and uncomfortable. That is no longer the case. Clothing made with fibers such as silk, organic cotton and bamboo is created to feel smooth and allow for breathability. Tightly woven pieces are soft against the skin and aren’t clingy. Natural fibers are unprocessed and can be created without the use of toxins and chemicals. They are light in weight and can be used for any article of clothing. Natural fibers are also a win due to being biodegradable.

Second Hand

What better way to give a piece of clothing long lasting life than use it again and again? Skip the mall and check out your local thrift stores. You may be surprised at treasures hidden amongst the racks. Find a few pieces to add to your closet that have been gently used and you can rest assured that you are not causing new resources to be used for your wardrobe. Not only are you giving pieces a second life, but the prices you encounter at a second hand store can grant you the option of buying twice as much as your budget may have allowed otherwise.

Upcycled

Find a bunch of cool old ties but don’t know what use they could possibly have? Break out the sewing machine and stitch them together lengthwise to create a fantastically unique A-line skirt. Have a hole in the knee of an old pair of jeans? Pull out the inner seams and make a denim skirt. Hang on to your favorite items long after they’ve outlived their current use by upcycling them into a new article of clothing.

Recycled Materials

You may be surprised to learn that natural fibers aren’t the only material that can be utilized to create sustainable clothing. Materials such as plastic bottles can be recycled into fabric, as well. In fact, one company removes labels and caps from bottles, breaks them down into flakes, melts those flakes into pellets, and then heats it in yet another way to create a fiber. This fiber undergoes a variety of stretching and crimping processes to create fabric used for clothing. Recycled clothing can be extremely stylish too! Check out the recycled pants by Teeki on St. Bernard Sports.

Eco-Responsible Manufacturing

Keep abreast of how your wardrobe comes to be in the first place. Check out manufactures that create brands you are drawn to and verify that they utilize earth-friendly practices. Researching online can often turn up questionable practices that are a little less than stellar for the environment. If you find the company doesn’t make the grade, consider engaging in an e-mail campaign to let them know that eco-responsible manufacturing is important to you as a consumer.

Keeping sustainable measures in mind while you shop may seem difficult at first, but it can quickly become second nature. Follow these tips and you can wear your new (or new to you) duds knowing you had minimal impact on the earth.

City apartments come in many different styles, and some lend themselves to one particular type of interior design rather than another. A studio apartment, for example, may suit the professional bachelor, while a large apartment complete with original features might be the choice of a family that appreciates traditional design.

Traditional

A traditional style of furnishing has undeniable elegance and will make your apartment welcoming and inspiring. To achieve a traditional look, you will need vintage rather than modern furniture, such as a Chesterfield sofa for your seating area, an iron bedstead for your bedroom, and a bureau or leather-topped desk for your workspace. To avoid a cluttered look, keep the walls light with a subtly-patterned wallpaper or cream paint.

Living in a tiny space

Many of us who have to live in a small space still want to be able to say they have a bedroom, a living room, a kitchen, and maybe even a dining room. However, many apartments these days are open-plan, so if you want different areas, you will need to make zones. You can do this by hanging curtains and screens, or even pieces of storage furniture, such as bookcases, to serve as room dividers.

You can also invest in modern furniture that has been specifically designed to capitalize on space. For example, if you only have one room, you can buy a pull-down bed that closes up to the wall when not in use – these come in a variety of sizes, from singles up to king-size. Drop-leaf tables that can be put up when needed are also a good choice for space-challenged apartments.

Airy and spacious

Other people may have airy and spacious apartments, but how do you make such a big space feel warm and welcoming? The first thing to do is dress the windows in an attractive manner to draw the eye to them and to warm the space up. Blinds are always a good choice and can be hung on their own or teamed with side drapes to create more of a feature.

If you have a lot of floor space, you should opt for larger furniture to fill it up. This is easily achieved with seating as there are plenty of sofas available that offer space for four people or more. It can also be a good choice to buy a sofa that has a chaise longue element to it. This not only gives another seating option but also gives a sofa a more interesting shape and can be used to zone a room.

If your large apartment is a converted industrial space, you could decorate it in the same theme, using industrial-style pendant lighting and wooden and metal furniture – the perfect choice for the urban dweller.

Whatever the size of your apartment, you should ultimately furnish it in a way that makes you feel comfortable and that you can live in, rather than focusing on a definite style that looks good but is less than welcoming.
