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. And this particular nursery is a special one. Marsh & Clark Design transformed this third-floor attic bedroom into a soothing, sustainable nursery for the 2010 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. And to make it extra special, the room is designed for not one, but THREE precious little ones. :: READ THE FULL POST
In the spirit of sharing more of myself with you, my readers, I decided that each Friday, I will write one post that is a departure from the usual content here. I’ll call it Free-for-All Friday. It may be a trivia post, or something about current events, or just something that has caught my attention and tickled me. I love the fact that I have such a narrow niche here, but sometimes I’d like to write about something a little different. So here goes. Here are seven things you probably don’t know about me: :: READ THE FULL POST
I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching about my passions and the future of Green Your Decor. Lately, I’ve been writing a lot more about my own projects and things that I’m working on. It’s not that there’s a shortage of great green products to write about. In fact, I have so many bookmarked that its unlikely I’ll ever get to all of them.
It’s just that I personally love reading design blogs where the writer shares their projects and processes, tidbits about their lives, photos of their trips and day-to-day activities, before-and-afters, etc. It makes them feel more engaged and personal, in my opinion, and I’d love for my readers to have the same warm and fuzzy feelings about me as I do about my favorite bloggers. :: READ THE FULL POST
I love a good before and after, and I love it even more when the “after” is something I could actually bring home with me. Mid-Century Modern Furniture is everyone’s favorite these days (me included), but it can sometimes be hard to imagine formica-covered pieces as anything other than — well — dated. I’ve been trying to train myself to have more of an imagination when I find vintage pieces with potential, but I couldn’t have imagined the final outcome of this piece. But etsy seller homeECOnomics had a vision, and she sure did bring this table to life. :: READ THE FULL POST
Remember way back (actually last August) when I worked with Wilsonart Flooring and my local Dalton CarpetOne to have a new, recycled laminate wood floor installed in my mother’s living room and hallway? Well, it’s about time for an update, don’t you think?
A lot has happened in the last 9 months. My husband, daughter and I moved out of my mom’s house and into our own place — and then we moved again. My mother has been back and forth between the Virgin Islands and Georgia, and the house still gets a lot of traffic. One of my sisters lives there, and my nieces are there almost every day after school. And that’s not to mention my mother’s rambunctious dog, who would frolic all over the house if she were allowed. :: READ THE FULL POST
