New trends in the fabric world
Sherwood Park News
We are always being bombarded with the latest must-haves in design and decorating. It is a challenge, to be sure, to sort through the latest colours, materials and design trends. While it is always a good idea to have at least one finger on the pulse of what is prevailing or taking centre stage in terms of designing our homes, it is equally important that the rest of the fingers are on what we personally deem to be important and beautiful.

Sustainable flooring made out of paper
Portland Tribune
When people replace their home flooring, one of the first steps is parking a dumpster in front of their house. But Texas transplant Lisa Raymer has come up with a creative way to make beautiful floors without tearing out the old one.

"In essence, this trend is about the celebration of tactile qualities in a post-digital era, where products that tell a story and bring a wholesome, unrefined attitude are valued — think reclaimed rough wood, rusted metal, hand-knitted and crocheted fabrics as well as felt, leather and wool," he says.
