Green Decorating: Colorful Eco-Friendly Modern Living Room
I had so much fun putting this eco-friendly living room together this week. When I was thinking about ideas for color scheme I found this beautiful eco-friendly rug with gorgeous colors and decided to build this weeks green decorating room around the rug. The combination of chocolate, sage green, pale yellow and the bold pinkish-orange color look amazing together. I brought in some reclaimed wood, wool and bamboo fabrics and fair trade handmade items.
