2010 Idea Home: Smart Ideas for Eco-Friendly Decorating
Idea Home: A table/bench made out of wood salvaged from teardown buildings stays eco-friendly because it was finished with nontoxic water- and soy-base finishes. It provides an attractive display space for bits of nature: twisted tree roots, rock geodes and sculptural willow branches in a vase.
Your home: Look for natural items to use as accessories. Shells, pinecones, rocks, dried flowers, branches, sand in glass vases, etc. -- all add life to manufactured decor.
