Having a professional interior designer as part of our team here at Okiriko, we felt the need to blog a bit about the tricks and trade of interior design. We point out many Dos and Don’ts and we enlighten on some common errors. We are avid supporters of the “Go Green” movement and hope our tips on sustainable approaches to home and living can add to this growing consciousness.
