Due to concerns about global temperatures rising, Nottingham residents want to know how to make their homes a sustainable place in 2022.

The new year has arrived, and some people want to re-decorate their homes accordingly with fresh homeware.

However, it can be difficult to find eco-friendly ways in doing so.

Second-year Furniture and Product Design student at Nottingham Trent University, Owen Fenton, said: “Tutors are now encouraging us to make sustainable products made from recycled materials.

“We recently did a group project for a company called TAKT which is a design organisation.

“We chose one room in the house and all made different furniture and designs for that room, I choose a shelf, all of which had to be made out sustainable materials.

“We had to outline in the brief what makes it environmentally friendly.

“It encourages students to continue the way they started, eco-friendly.”

Here are some of the best ways to find sustainable Nottingham artists for your home in 2022.

Kelly Ann Holes is a fantastic sustainable artist from Nottingham, specialising in the use of recycled drinking tin cans.

She uses something that was originally destined for the bin, into something that would make your house a home.

Kelly also runs her own gardening business because she finds that art hasn’t always got the most stable income and there are periods of time when no-one buys her work, but other times where her work is really popular.

Her recycled and sustainable art is full of colourful inspiration and would look great hanging against cream or white walls in your house.

2022 is bringing you more ways of protecting our planet from global temperatures rising and artists, such as Kelly, help you find ways to decorate your home that reduce further worry around global warming.

Lots of her work is bright and vibrant such as flowers made out of recycled materials, lamp shades, framed images for the walls of your house.

Her recycled flowers would look great on a side table and a coffee table in the house and would be more durable for long-term use than real flowers.
