We visited a hidden textile studio days ago and really impressed with the place. During our conversation with the artist/ owner regarding where her idea came from, she explain that when she is doing renovation for her shop she find that the painting of walls is really harmful both to the earth and herself, thus she decided to use clay/mud on her wall, it is non-toxic and good for her and the earth. Using mud/clay on the wall transforms the place into an entirely different place with the accompany of some wood. It feels really down-to-earth and peaceful during our place there.
As mentioned, a new wall finish can transform your home. Finishes protect walls from the elements and from daily wear, and they play an important role in regulating indoor temperature and humidity. Natural finishes, which undergo minimal processing and are generally nontoxic, can be made from clay, lime, chalk, casein, rock dust, earth pigments, and natural plant extracts such as oils and waxes. These naturally beautiful materials bathe walls in color and texture while balancing relative humidity, creating a more comfortable indoor environment.
Will you use it at your home?
