I love that green homes are becoming not just popular now but simply becoming the main stay. I’ve noticed a slow but huge shift in just about every product out there from paints to even lumber to help cut our foot print on the earth down. The awesome shift to DIY and recycling of old pieces makes total sense to me, of course lol. I love how green a home Grandma’s house is, how much I was able to save and recycle is something I am very proud of.

Interior design projects are a fun way to improve your rooms and create a home which reflects your personality. When you’re redecorating it’s important to keep it green, but how exactly can you do this?

  1. Pick natural materials

Before you start shopping it’s worth reading up on the best earth-friendly materials. From your bed sheets to your table and your carpets, look out for materials such as:

Eco paint is made from ingredients such as clay, milk protein, and natural pigments from the earth. A few options to choose from include Bioshield, Clare Paint or Benjamin Moore Natura.

  1. Try out upcycling

To help you get some great green ideas for upcycling projects, check out the following apps:

  1. Use nature as decor

Decorating with flowers and plants is one of the easiest and greenest ways to improve your home. Perhaps you’d prefer low maintenance plants which are easy to look after? If so, consider the following options:

  1. Remember natural light

With the best use of natural light, you’ll enhance the beauty of your space and even reduce your heating costs. From a design perspective, natural light can improve the look of your entire room from the ambivalence to the color schemes. With the right blinds and curtains, it’s simple to maximize the amount of natural light and help create a green home.
