(Before It's News)

For those us fortunate enough to ponder how to make our homes beautiful, enchanting, crafty and Eco-friendly, we have oodles of choices and morals to ponder. We are in the process of this now, it rocks and I’m loving it. I can guarantee you that we will not be knitting carpet from moss in our backyard but we won’t we clearing Pottery Barn of their inventory either. I’m going to show you step by step how we navigate these choices and weigh out the options.

New carpets, new vinyl and fresh white paint greeted us in turn-key home… for the most part. For starters, I am allergic to white walls. Mission one, COLOR! We selected Benjamin Moore’s variety of Natura paints that are non-VOC, meaning that our beautiful colors won’t cause a cancer concern. Here’s where we are so far (these are shots I nabbed from ye ole internet. I’m totally self-conscious about art till done 🙂

Since the house is small (1034 sq ft to be exact) I carried the same color through the laundry room and both bathrooms. Benjamin Moore’s Wythe Blue.

Our room is in Kasbah (inspiration shot, not actual room)

Sons room in Azores

And the rest of the kitchen, living and dining spaces in Saybrook Sage

That’s all for now, hope you’re as inspired as I am!!
