It's ALL about green

{Christopher Guy showroom in Winnetka, IL}
Tasteful, classy, GREEN accents incorporated into an amazing showroom with THE most unique furnishings.

It's all about green, spring is in the air, and I want to share some of my favorite green and eco-friendly interiors and products~

 An exciting, BOLD, innovative, eco-friendly wall covering company, EDGE Wall coverings (wow, what more can you ask for??) offers these inspiring products and has the capability of custom scaling the designs to fit your wall size requirements.

See the full color spectrum at  www.sherwinwilliams.comSherwin Williams paint "200 zero VOC's" just came out last year and barely has a smell to it. The coverage is good, safer for us to breathe and for the environment! Shown here are some very springy colors ranging form the lightest color and very calming Camomile SW 6399 and graduating to the deepest tone Fervent Brass SW 6405. I love each and every one of these hues. (But then again, I'm partial to anything green)
