Spring into Earth Day with the Best of Eco-Finds

Spring is officially here!  With Earth Day around the corner I thought it would be fun to explore some Earth Friendly products that I can't live without.  The interior designer in me is always looking for new and innovative products that can inspire my projects & get my clients excited.  
Fashion continues to evolve my design eye day after day.  I'm always left thoroughly inspired by the amazing Stella McCartneyI'm in love with her spring collection and how she has incorporated bold patterns and colors....And the cherry on top is her whimsical play on Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland
Every great outfit deserves a show-stopping accessory to make a statement. I am always on the hunt for stylish accessories to finish off a fabulous look.  This year's color: Turquoise!  My must have accent piece for my overflowing jewelry collection is this Jose & Maria's Multi-Strand Turquoise piece from Neiman Marcus.  Look great and forget the guilt...Turquoise stones are natural and precious & dying to be worn!

What a great season to spruce up your style and add a little Green into your home.  Just like in fashion you always want to start with a foundation and add to that.....We all know that Paint is the most accessible and inexpensive way of changing the backdrop of your space, but have you tried the Aura Collection from Benjamin Moore? It is a great example of an Eco-Friendly product that gives you unimaginable color selection plus the bonus of low VOCs. 

 Fabrics are another great way of expressing personal style & exude those fashion forward trends that add an instant burst of drama into a space.  I am a huge supporter of products & individuals that convey style while remaining environmentally friendly all at the same time...If you haven't seen Clodagh's GLOBAL PASSAGE for Duralee, check it out! 
1st Dibs, as we all know & love, is such an amazing resource when trying to locate those unforgettable vintage pieces.  What a way to re-claim and re-discover those lost treasures.   

Getting ready to go to  High Point Market in North Carolina to work with Duralee & Arteriors....Many exciting projects on the horizon.  Can't wait to share all my finds....
