It’s no secret that singer Adele is a fan of eco-friendly living. From her experiments with vegetarianism to her lavish-yet-green beach house, the star seems to love mixing earth-friendly options with high-end style.
Now it seems that the singer is carrying that philosophy through to the decorating of her home in Sussex, where she lives with boyfriend Simon Konecki and their new son.
Contact Music reports that although Adele is a multi-millionaire, she has opted to go the eco-friendly thrift store route for furniture, by shopping at resale stores near her home. Not only is it a better option for the planet, but Adele reportedly loves shopping locally — and snagging a good deal.
An unnamed source said, “Adele is like any normal girl — she loves a bargain. She’d rather shop local, too, so these are the obvious places to go. She doesn’t get bothered much where she’s decided to live so she’s got plenty of time to delve into whatever’s in the shops.”
Nevertheless, the star’s home won’t be furnished entirely with low-cost pieces. Adele and Konecki also recently splurged on some very expensive art — two butterfly paintings by Andy Warhol. And Contact Music says the couple has plans for more high-end paintings.
“Adele and…Konecki had the pair of prints delivered to their house in the past month. They’re Warhol fans and the butterfly works are a good investment as well. The Warhols have already been hung in pride of place on the walls of the living room at the huge house. The couple are hoping to get more contemporary art for the walls to add to their collection, including paintings by Damien Hirst and Banksy,” revealed a source.
It sounds as though Adele has landed on the perfect mixture of luxe and earth-friendly.
