I have planned a lot of bedrooms over the past few years — all decked out in beautiful, eco-friendly furniture, bedding and accessories. But with each of those rooms, I overlooked what should have been the most important building block of any truly functional bedroom — the bed. No matter how beautiful, for a bedroom to provide the respite for which it is designed, the bed has to be comfortable. In our previous master bedroom, we achieved aesthetic beauty, but my husband and I were waking up morning after morning with stiffness and pain because we needed a new bed. :: READ THE FULL POST
I’m finally getting back into the swing of doing Green Rooms in a Box, with a new twist: I will select one item that inspires the look of whole room. It could be a painting, a vase, a blanket, or whatever. This first one is inspired by Viva Terra’s Butaca Chair, an eco-friendly take on the classic Barcelona chair. I love the lines and even the rustic coffee sack upholstery. For this room, I let the upholstery guide me — and this is where I wound up. :: READ THE FULL POST
I’ve been having a blast decking out Ja’Naya’s new room with the help of some wonderful in-kind sponsors. It’s killing me that I can’t reveal the whole room just yet, but I’m waiting for a couple of key components that will really complete the look, so you’ll have to wait just a little bit longer.
In the meantime, though, I decided to give you a sneak peek of the room. The image shown above is just a sneak peek of the sneak peek Want to see the full image?

Today’s Green Room in a Box is part of a special project that is really near and dear to me. My family has been through a lot in the last several months since my daughter’s diagnosis, but none of us have been through more than Ja’Naya herself. She is doing really well with her treatment and handling it like a trooper, but my husband and I wanted to do something special for her to help ease the transition. Next week, my family is moving to be closer to her doctors, and we decided to completely redecorate her room (in eco-friendly fashion, of course) so she’ll have a special place to play and relax, especially after long days at the clinic. :: READ THE FULL POST
Mid-Mod Bedroom: It’s been a long while since I’ve done a Green Room in a Box, but there’s no time like the present to get started again, right? Today’s room is sponsored by one of my all-time favorite companies for eco-friendly home decor, Amenity. The design is a heavy mix of old and new that meets somewhere in the middle for an eclectic, but sophisticated look. :: READ THE FULL POST
