I love blue. Really. It is officially my favorite among all the wall colors we’ve ever used. In turn, our finished dining room is my new favorite room. That could be because we haven’t really finished any other spaces in this apartment, but I think it’s because it really just turned out great. And I have FLOR to thank for the inspiration.

It seems like a lot of the eco-friendly rooms I receive or come across are nurseries, and that’s no surprise. It stands to reason that if you were going to make any room in your home greener, it would be the one where your precious babies will be living and sleeping.

This room has been about two months in the making, starting with a Green Room in a Box planning the space, but it’s finally done! Before I show you the completed room, here’s Miss Ja’Naya, enjoying her new reading corner:

Facing the doorway and closet
We definitely wanted to personalize a bit

There are a couple of reasons for that — the biggest of which being that we have moved so many times since I started this blog that I have never gotten a chance to really finish a room. Well, I’ve decided that I’m going to stop procrastinating. I won’t just finish all our rooms — I’ll also reveal them to you. So first up, our nearly complete master bedroom.

It makes my day when readers thank me for helping them make their homes greener through this site. I feel like I’m doing my job of making green decorating accessible to any and everyone. It makes me even happier when I get to see photos of their fully-decorated spaces. Kelli Taylor of Purple Tree Photography, is one such reader, and I hope you’re as stoked about her gorgeous nursery as I am. In her words:
I just finished my baby nursery that I wanted to submit. I found the eco-friendly crib and changing table thanks to you!! Other green items in the room include: paint, crib mattress, FLOR rug, changing table pad, redone rocking chair, sheets & changing table sheet. :: READ THE FULL POST
