I swear, writing for this blog, I fall in love every single day. One day, I’ll think I’ve found the ultimate piece that completely defines my style and would make me happy for the rest of my life (much like the Trees nightstand and dresser by Iannone Design that I posted yesterday). Then, I’ll go on about my business and, by accident, bump into something else that I feel like I can’t live without. Enter the Sort Sol Lamp, by Stray Dog Designs for Anthropologie. As obsessed as I am with bird motifs, it’s been a long time since I’ve found one that uses birds in a new and different way. This lamp just makes me happy. :: READ THE FULL POST
Dark blue has been on my “must have” list lately. Although I’d originally planned to find something to paint, I may have to reconsider. The Organic Indigo Collection from Zen Deluxe is like something from a green dream. Finding gorgeous, eco-friendly linens in indigo isn’t impossible, but it’s definitely a challenge. This collection single-handedly changed that.
Each piece is available separately, so you can go subtle with a pillow cover, rug or lamp shade, or combine several of these elements for a look that is both cohesive and eclectic, as seen in the first photo. Personally, I think having all of them in one space would be overkill, but the ability to mix and match to your desired saturation is awesome. :: READ THE FULL POST
Back when I first started Green Your Decor, there weren’t very many websites dedicated to selling eco-friendly home furnishings. They existed, but tended to be hard to find or feature only a limited number of items. At the time, green retailer Green Culture was the exception to the rule. There’s a reason I included the retailer on my list of the top 10 online resources for eco-friendly decorating. They have a vast collection of eco-friendly furnishings for every room. For decor addicts like me, it’s easy to spend hours browsing the sites under their umbrella. :: READ THE FULL POST
I understand that living in an apartment means that any major changes we make to our living space will probably have to be changed back before we move out. For example, we know that we have a 5-gallon bucket of Kilz primer in our future to cover up all the painting we did. But as tempted as I am, I don’t want to be responsible for switching light fixtures, then having to switch them back. Still, I’m dreaming of a dining room punctuated by a beautiful pendant or chandelier, and this woven option from West Elm just might make me change my mind. :: READ THE FULL POST
