For the past few months, I’ve been hard at work behind the scenes on a new project, and finally on Monday, all that hard work will come to fruition. Green & Gorgeous, the sister blog to Green Your Decor, will debut with great eco-friendly content on a much broader range of issues than I am able to cover here.
G&G will cover beauty, health, family, fashion, food, technology and travel & transportation. And it’s motto? Proving that “green” doesn’t have to mean “granola.” :: READ THE FULL POST
Anyone who knows me knows that I like eye candy. I love being surrounded by beautiful things. When it comes to the home, many of those beautiful things are purely decorative.

Can’t decide between dark wood and light wood in your nursery? Thanks to the beautiful new Oops Crib by Structured Green, you no longer have to choose.

As a graphic designer, I revel in customization. When I create designs for myself, with no client to answer to, I love being able to have the final result exactly as I envisioned it. As an interior designer, I often wish I had the means to customize my projects in the same way. Thanks to Spoonflower, I can now print my own fabric designs on organic cotton fabric. :: READ THE FULL POST
