7 Designer Approved Ideas For A More Sustainably Decorated Home

Incorporate furniture or decor made from recycled or upcycled materials. This can include pieces made from reclaimed wood, recycled glass, or repurposed items.

Upcycled Materials

Opt for paints with low or no volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These are better for the environment and healthier for your home's indoor air quality.

Eco-Friendly Paints

Plants not only beautify your space but also improve air quality. Choose indoor-friendly plants that require minimal water for an eco-friendly touch.

Indoor Plants

For textiles like rugs, curtains, or cushions, choose natural fibers such as organic cotton, wool, or bamboo. These materials are renewable and biodegradable.

Natural Fibers

If buying new wooden furniture or decor, look for pieces made from sustainably sourced wood, certified by organizations like the Forest Stewardship Council

Purchasing locally-made decor can reduce the carbon footprint associated with transportation. Plus, it supports local economies and craftsmanship.

Support Local Artisans
