My name is Vickie, the owner of DecoratewithBamboo.com. I am an Interior Decorator and in the past I have always. designed homes with lots of heavy woods and materials such as oak, pine, mahogany, and stones like granite and marble. Then a friend of mine wanted me to decorate her home in a tropical theme with bamboo and other Eco-Friendly accessories.
As I was doing my research for the project, I learned of the many uses of natural products such as bamboo, coconuts, natural grasses and fibers and how beautiful, unique, and eco-friendly it all was. These materials, like bamboo, are considered eco-friendly because they don’t cause damage to the environment when items made from these materials are produced or disposed of.
