Ample amounts of eco home design inspiration for you.

Title: Eco House Book

Author: Terence Conran

Publisher: Lorraine Dickey

This is the fifth book from designer/restaurateurs/furniture-maker/retailer and Habitat store founder Terence Conran - though it’s the first to look at homes from a complete eco stance.

The book’s already a winner before you open it. The first thing that stands out is funky eco-esque cover, alluding to the ample home improvement tips inside, illustrated with numerous vibrant images.

The book is packed with useful eco advice and tips on everything including carrying out small repairs, improving your home’s energy efficiency, redecorating, furnishing and re-designing your home. In a nutshell, it shows you how to improve not only the look of your home, but also how to get a better-looking carbon footprint.

Better yet, it will look great on your coffee table. Definitely worth a read for those seeking some sleek 'n' chic eco inspiration.
