Green Design Ideas for Every Style

No matter what your personal design style is, you can use the principles of green decorating to create a more eco-friendly home.  Here are a few types for green decorating from HGTV designer Linda Woodrum:

  • Shop Locally – Look for products that are manufactured near your home.  You’ll be supporting the local economy and the items you buy will have required less energy for transport.
  • Keep the Air Clean – Pay attention to cleaning products and paint — avoid toxic fumes whenever possible.
  • Look for Eco-Friendly Home Furnishings – Manufacturers have heard the demand for more eco-friendly furniture and carpets.  Look for sustainable woods like bamboo and for carpets made from natural fibers and recycled materials.
