Check out Petz Scholtus's environmentally responsible renovation of her 18th-century apartment in Barcelona, Spain — The New York Times shows us the results of the product designer's careful consideration of all her choices.

1 The kitchen renovation includes IKEA cabinets and green and white ceramic tiles from a local source.
2 Petz handmade Bidon lamps — made from discarded containers and PVC-free wire.
3 She transformed a found chair with newsprint decoupage.
4 A planter made from a discarded tire.
5 The bathroom tiles are made from recycled plastic, but resemble slate.

You can follow Petz on her blog, r3project.blogspot.com. Read the whole story on The New York Times: Carbon Neutral on a Shoestring and all the photos in the slideshow.
