I've decided to start sharing new products I'm trying and the steps I'm taking on a monthly basis toward a healthier lifestyle and sustainable home! Growth and improvement don't happen over night. Small, but intentional steps add up over time. With that being said, welcome to the first installment of Monthly Green Roundup.
I really thrive on interior design and think the perfectionist side of me loves those "before" and "after" home renovations-- seeing people dream, transform and use their skill to bring life to a space. The thing is, many times its not like that. Unless you have saved up, have a generous budget for remodeling or work as a designer, that "before" and "after" looks more like a progression of photos, of a space evolving and growing to become the vision you have.
We've lived in this house a little over a year now. Our first Christmas it all felt so new and I didn't have an inkling what would dress up our little place for the holidays. I think knowing a space is sometimes something that takes time and experimenting. This year I planned ahead and acquired various pines, cedars and fir branches.
