Today’s Room: By reader’s choice, a stimulating eco-friendly home office under $2500!
I like to think of a home office as a space that is bright and cheerful — a place where you love to go and where its easy to get work done. This office is colorful and eclectic, and perfect for any creative home worker.
- Kennedy Bamboo Grommet-top Panels, 48″ x 84″ | $84/ea., $168 for 2 | Made of 100% bamboo
- Large Karma Vase, Mustard | £30 or about $55 | Made of stoneware and hand-finished with non-toxic paints

- Tribeca Shelf by Way Basics, Espresso | $92.50/ea.; $370 for 4 | Made of recycled paper and recyclable | I have only showed 2, but what I’d really like to see (but don’t have room for on the style board) is 2 stacked Tribeca shelves on each side.
- Propeller Pillow by Inhabit, sunshine | $60/ea., $120 for 2 | Handprinted and handmade in the USA from recycled polyester and environmentally-friendly inks. All paper waste from this process is repurposed as shredded packing material, and the pillow is recyclable at the end of its life-cycle.

- Low Wide Rectangle by Way Basics | $39.25/ea., $117.75 for 3 | Made of recycled paper and recyclable | Again, I only showed one, but this is a very low bench, so three of them stacked on top of each other would give you enough height to make a seating area out of it.

Buds Tufted Rug by Thomas Paul | $676 | Made of natural, hand-tufted wool | Since this is a room that likely will not get a lot of foot traffic, you can feel good about splurging on this gorgeous rug that ties together three of 4 colors used in the room
