I’m Nadine Samwell and I’m an interior designer, serial renovator and founder of the Eco Edition Design School.
I’ve been an interior designer for over 15 years and a renovator for over 20 years. In my professional career I’ve worked across a huge range of projects, many of which were sustainability accredited projects.
The search for sustainable materials for your home can be an exhausting job. I get it! I know how frustrating and confusing it can be because I’ve been there too.
That’s why I decided to compile all my favourite suppliers and manufacturers, from my years of research and on the job experience throughout my career as an interior designer, into an easy to use library for you. This library contains hundreds of suppliers and manufacturers who produce the best materials for your sustainable home.
As a renovator I’ve learnt through hands on experience all the ins and outs of creating a gorgeous home. I understand what homeowners want – the tools, guides and above all else the SIMPLICITY – to help create the perfect project.
Continuing to learn and grow is important to me so I’ve additional studies to become Healthy Materials Advocate after undertaking studies in Healthier Materials and Sustainable Buildings. I’ve woven this knowledge into the suppliers I’ve selected in the Eco Materials Library.
I’m also the founder and editor of Eco Edition, an online design resource which solely focusses on sustainable homes, as well as how-to guides, sustainable materials, furniture, furnishings and loads more. I’ve researched, interviewed and written about countless projects and materials and I’ve learnt from some of the best in the business.
Also, I live and breath the sustainability lifestyle. In my home, my family and I conserve water and electricity, we grow our own veggies on our inner city block, buy second hand when we can, only have 1 car, compost everything and have managed to reduce our landfill waste down to one very tiny bag every week.
