Heirloom Design, Thoughtful Purchasing, and Slow Living

Best of Spring 2010: Post Roundup

One of the main tenets we hold to here at Re-Nest is the belief that one should purchase things carefully, thoughtfully, and with an eye for what will make your home a healthier and more beautiful place. Truly sustainable design should discourage us against buying short-lived products that we'll end up throwing away. Here are 15 posts from this past year that celebrate the slow, thoughtfully designed and purchased life:

We're making our way through 2010 and rounding up some of our favorite (and your favorite) posts. Also on deck during this time: the Re-Nest editors get personal in our "Meet the Team" series, a special group of guest bloggers share their green resolutions, and we go big with Green City Guides, from Montreal to Madison.
