Eco-Chic

We all love the idea of having a green home, filled with eco-friendly furniture and products.

However, each year more and more people are becoming more eco-conscious for our habitat and our future, and luckily Fall 2011 decorating trends are looking a little more green! Here’s our take on this nature-loving trend, and how you can style your home to the look and the lifestyle.

Having an eco-home starts with environmentally friendly furniture! Check out the Niko and Nara collections for style and sustainability! Both are built out of giant bamboo, a trending natural substitute for the classic wood furniture usually purchased. Each collection will give your home a gorgeous modern edge to an otherwise soothing look. This fits in perfectly with a few of the Fall 2011 home decor trends!

Contrasting textures in complementing colors will make the room look pulled together in a less, clean-cut, dry way. Be on the lookout for wallpaper, drapery, and upholstery with a natural feel to it, and don’t let the color speak for itself — pick textures that have an organic finish!
