When I do small craft and design projects for my own home, I often wind up with small scraps of fabric, paper and other materials that I wind up throwing away or recycling despite my best intentions to find a use for them. Can you imagine how huge that pile of stuff would be if I were a practicing interior designer doing projects regularly?
Deana Bracken of Green With Glamour knows, and she did something about it. She began creating these cute framed silhouettes featuring a variety of salvaged, upcycled and/or non-toxic materials — mostly remnants from her interior design projects and samples and swatches that would otherwise be discarded. She also creates throw pillows from these materials — each with two fronts — so you can change your style just by flipping the pillow over.
As you can imagine, this means each piece Deana creates is one of a kind, so you can be as unique as you want to be. On the art, I love how the boldly patterned background papers and fabrics are paired with solid, striking silhouettes and painted frames. These are just my style — a little modern, a little glam, and a lot of green.
