Nearly three years ago when I set out to design my son’s nursery, making it eco-friendly was relatively low on my list of priorities. Maybe I was just naive or maybe it was because my options were limited. In just a few short years however, my mentality has changed for the better and so have retailers. Terrific children’s boutiques and designers are now making a difference. We kick off our “Week of Earth Day” at Project Nursery with some serious eco-friendly finds. Here are just a few faves to get us started…
Pam and I started blogging just a year ago, about the same time as our blogging buddies at Tiny Decor. While we are slackers and didn’t come up with anything clever to celebrate our year, the Tiny Decor Blog is sharing their “Blogiversary” with some stylish eco-nursery swag valued at $300. Just share your child’s eco-friendly room to enter. We look forward to checking in to see the results. If you are like me – working to make things a bit more green, visit their shop of all organic materials and original designs.
“Who says eco-friendly has to be boring!?!” says Jennifer Owner/Designer of Turtle Park Tots. I agree with you Jennifer. Eco-friendly fabrics used to mean “off white” or “natural” but no longer and Turtle Park Tots can prove it with their modern, hip and practical designs for baby.
Muralist Christine Bryant of The Spotted Moon Art Company has recently introduced us to old fashioned Milk Paint, the most natural paints on the market. We are impressed with not only Christine’s artistry but her efforts to create a new line of environmentally safe “Milk Murals” and new blog entitled, “Natural Nesting: Non-toxic alternatives to prepare for your new baby”. And for those of you hesitant to commit to a mural in your home for fear of having to move: Some of Christine’s best mural work is portable!
