Updated: Sep 18, 2019

How cute is this poster? It inspired me to come up with my own interior design list.



Avoid wall-to-wall carpet

Barnwood and other reclaimed wood

Consider reusing, reupholstering and refurbishing existing furniture.

Donate unwanted furniture and appliances

Exchange your light bulbs for LED

FSC certified wood

Greenguard certified products

Honor architecture style and historic elements

Invest in your furniture and interiors

Join a community clean up or just pick up a piece of trash when you see it

Kilim and antique rugs

Latex and natural fiber mattresses

Meaningful art and accessories

Natural cleaning products

Offset your carbon footprint

Plumbing products that are low-flow

Quit trends and focus on quality

Rapidly renewable products like bamboo, cork, wool and cotton

Synthetic fill vs. down (cruelty-free)

Try to buy local to avoid freight

Upcycle existing products

Ventilate- open windows and install ceiling fans

Water based cleaners, not solvents

Xeriscape your landscape- plant local

You don't have to be perfect- every little bit helps!

Zero VOC paints and sealers
