They say one man's trash is another man's treasure, and when it comes to interior decorating that could not be more true. The Keene Sentinel reports that incorporating recycled items that may not otherwise be used is becoming popular.

According to the news source, the trend, which is sometimes affectionately referred to as "junking," can be achieved in a number of different ways. One of the most effective routes to take is to arrange vintage pillows and throws. Choosing these items in shades of darker, autumnal colors may add a fall atmosphere. Industry experts say there are a number of places one can find the right material.

"I love flea market shopping, but there are countless other spots sweet on junk," industry insider Sue Whitney told the news provider. "Salvage yards, used restaurant supply stores and farm sales are just a few of the many alternatives."

Those who may be looking to incorporate a similar feeling into their abode, but would like to add something new, may want to consider hanging roman shades. In addition to providing an effective barrier from the sun, roman shades offer a subtle elegance that can improve the aesthetic of a room.
