Green walls are said to very useful, for they are relaxing to the mind. If you are going to paint your walls in light green, you will probably need to beautify them with a nice piece of art.
Go for wall poster and paintings, but only for those that are made to be recycled or reused.
For instance, you can place the Inhabit Wall Art, for it is 100 percent sustainable recycled polyester.
The hand prints are also modern, but make sure the inks and the paints are eco-friendly.
Try to include greener accessories. Rocks, bamboo and cork are very sustainable materials that will add refreshing notes to your home.
Go for bamboo floorings, for they are totally green.
Instead of having some metallic table accessories, place some rocks and add a sustain candle in the middle. It is a far better accessory than those metallic table pieces.
