Sustainable deration at the House & Garden Festival

Paul Massey

This year, among its packed programme of talks, exhibitors, and workshops, the House & Garden Festival is focusing on the concept of sustainability, with decorated spaces providing inspiration on how to work with the environment in mind, and a series of talks on eco-friendly design.

As more and more of us are considering how to live a more sustainable life, whether that is by cutting down on plastic, improving the air quality in our houses, or decorating with responsibly-made furniture, fabrics, and paints, it's the perfect time to get advice and ideas from the experts at the Festival. Interior designers from Designs Direct in association with KLC School of Design will be creating two spaces that illustrate some key concepts of sustainable decoration. They will also point visitors in the direction of ethically made and upcycled products being exhibited on site.

In addition, you can see our editor Hatta Byng in conversation with Maria Speake and Adam Hills from Retrouvius, the design studio that has made salvage and reclaimed materials utterly desirable. There will also be a panel session with KLC School of Design discussing how a sustainable house can have major effects on the wellness of its inhabitants.
