Eco-designing

If you're looking for a new look for your home, Designer for a Day, an interior design firm owned by Jean Wall and Joan Robinson-Whitaker, redecorates using furniture and accessories you already have. “;It just makes sense in this economy,”; said Robinson-Whitaker. She also noted that recycling furniture eases the load on landfills. The couches in the room above were taken from another room and dressed up with slip covers for an updated look. Check them out at http://www.designerforadayhawaii.com or call 486-9191 or 737-1886.
