RECLAIMED HOMES

This is when my heart rate goes up with excitement. What an inspiration! Below is a house built from recycled bottles. The way the world is going we will have to start embracing these kind of materials and ideas.. and why not? To be honest if you google modern interiors very cold uninspiring images pop up. It’s far more beautiful and exciting to work with recycled materials in a modern way.
