Transform your bedroom with handmade bedding and luscious shades of green: To escape into an oasis without leaving your front door, decorate with handcrafted and eco-friendly bedsheets in shades of ivory.

Embrace a green space with a sustainable beige sofa and contrasting dark pillows: For a simple yet sophisticated living room, turn to sustainable furniture to channel your inner green décor guru. Try accessorizing an off-white or light beige sofa with accent pillows in burgundy and dark grey hues. Meanwhile, exposed brick walls and hanging recycled glass lamps can help to capture the eco chic spirit in the air.
