Salvage Secrets Design and Decor. by Joanne Palmisano. This is an idea book to get you enthused! This book showcases how using salvaged goods opens up a huge range of interior design possibilities.
This book follows up on the celebrated first Salvage Secrets book, which Fine Homebuilding called An invaluable first step in the salvage-for-design journey Salvage design guru Joanne Palmisano takes readers further in this new text, into smaller-scale interior design and decor concepts.
Innovative ideas such as bottle caps turned into a kitchen splashback, candle holders from old bed springs, and recycling an old shipping container into a guesthouse show how to repurpose a second-hand item. Styles can be retro and modern or classic, the cottage or shabby chic look, or urban chic. Palmisano takes readers on a sumptuous visual journey featuring unique salvage ideas in an eclectic array of styles, for every room in the house; kitchens and dining rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms, living rooms and dens, and entryways and outdoor areas.
The journey continues with a sampling of cutting-edge retail spaces, hotels, cafes, and boutiques across the country that incorporate salvage into their designs, such as Industrie Denim in San Francisco, Stowe Mountain Lodge in Stowe, Vermont, and Rejuvenation in Portland. Profiles of thirteen salvage success stories are also included, showcasing the imaginative designs of creative homeowners. And lastly, fourteen easy, do-it-yourself projects are included at the back of the book (with step-by-step instructions), not to mention a comprehensive - Where to Find Salvage - resource section.
