Eco-friendly decorating

I recently came across an article that talks about eco-friendly decorating- a subject that I am becoming more and more passionate about. Bernadette Upton, from EcoDecor in North Palm Beach offered these tips especially for parents to take care in Baby's Room:

She states that typically, parents bring baby home to the sickest room in the house. Her suggestions include:

Use only eco-friendly paints, such as Benjamin Moore's Eco-Spec, Sherwin Williams HealthSpec or ICI Dulux Paints Lifemaster 2000

Furnish the room with recycled solid wood furniture and repaint it. Avoid the stuff made from particleboard.

Wood floors are best. If you use area rugs, make sure they are 100% cotton with no synthetic dyes.

She suggests you should avoid using vinyl wallpapers as they can trap moisture and help grow mold. This is true of older style wallpapers - however the new non-woven wallpaper selections will have you changing the way you think about decorating with wallpaper and borders. This new generation of wallcovering installs as easily as painting the wall and are environmentally friendly. Also, remember, the grasscloths, bamboos and other natural wallcoverings which are stylish and always environmentally friendly

The psychology of color

Color definitely affects your emotions, so it is important to get the right balance.

Each color has its own characteristics:

Red - is an intense color; use it to create a cosy, intimate feel

Yellow - is cheerful and optimistic and brightens any space

Pink - is soft and feminine. It adds romance and a touch of tranquility

Orange - provides a feeling of warmth and adds sensuality to a room

Wallcoverings add a depth and richness to a room that paint alone never can. Don't forget to check out our gallery of pictures to show how textured wallcoverings enliven a room

"green" wallcoverings

I am always interested in ways to decorate that use "green" or sustainable materials that have less of a negative impact on the environment. Bamboo and grasscloths are certainly one way to go. I recently came across another new innovative material that is also eco-friendly "Ammolite." This is a wall covering that is created from woven glass yarns and colored in a unique, eco-friendly process.

This material is a woven product that is see through; you paint the walls and install the wall-covering on top allowing you to create unlimited color combos.

It can bring style and flare to old or newly painted walls; is Class A Fire rated; sustainable - simply repaint to redecorate and durable, washable and scrubbable.
