Salvage Secrets

Transforming Reclaimed Materials into Design Concepts

Joanne Palmisano (Author), Susan Teare (Photographs by)

Overview | Contents | Formats
 

A striking how-to guide and four-color visual tour presenting design possibilities using a range of salvaged materials.

Sustainability and conservation are buzzwords in the construction and renovation of homes today. It's therefore no surprise that "salvage design"—reusing old building materials and other types of recycled goods—is becoming a popular technique, both for its environmentally friendly functionality and for its unique design aesthetic.

Here, award-winning designer Joanne Palmisano presents an inspiring, practical guide that is also a striking visual tour of the full range of interior design possibilities incorporating salvaged materials. From using recycled wood as vintage flooring or accent beams to reclaiming stone as a kitchen island or fitting salvaged tiles into a bathroom backsplash, the book covers a range of materials and design concepts for different rooms and supplies technical information about what to keep in mind (size, shape, color, structural needs, etc.), how to use the salvaged materials most effectively, and where to go to find them.

For more information, check out the Salvage Secretsblog  to explore the online world of all things salvaged, recycled, upcycled, vintage and reclaimed.
