Natural Home Decorating Tips : Environmentally Safe Products for the Home

The biggest challenge in decorating your homeis finding out what really is good.

There are a number of products on the market thatare extremely toxic and in my mind should not be sold to the public.

Products that theyknow have formaldehyde and all these adhesives and glues are extremely toxic.

They are linkedto all kinds of cancers and personally I wouldn’t have them in my home.

Anything that is boundwith glues and stuff, those are the most toxic.

Paints and paint thinners are something youhave to be really careful about, and there are lots of choices on the market and that’swhat I’m going to do here today is show you the choices, the options you have to decorateyour home with, natural healthy supplies, materials.

We have everything from solid woolcarpet rugs, which are made out of all wool, we have flooring that is made from bamboo,we have flooring that is made from cork, we have throw rugs which I really encourage peopleto not have wall to wall carpeting in their home, to use natural floor rugs, throw rugs,like cecil, hemp, 100% cotton, organic cotton, silk, there’s linen, leather, there’sa number of options to use on your floor.

We have everything from water based paintsyou can use on your walls.

It’s not just brown and more brown, there’s blues, there’sgreens, there’s oranges, there’s reds, there’s yellows.

Every color in the spectrumyou need that is water based and healthy for you to use, you just have to go out and searchfor it.

There’s all glass tiles that are made from recycled glass, so, in helping theenvironment by being recycled, it’s also a beautiful product.

It’s being used twice,it’s not just something that stayed around one time, it’s being used twice and youcan incorporate that in, it’s all healthy, it’s solid glass.

Natural Home Decorating Tips : Recycled Tile for Natural Home Design

Now we’re going to talk a little bit aboutthe recycled products.

The terrazzo type countertop material is usually a ¼ inch, you can evenorder it thicker than the ¼ inch, ½ inch, and it does have to have underlayment so itdoesn’t crack or anything.

But it’s recycled glass, granite, and concrete mixture and it’scompressed together and it does have a mesh in it to hold it together so it’s reallystrong, I mean it’s just as strong as granite.

It’s a wonderful option, it’s beautiful,it looks like natural stone and you can put it anywhere, you can put it in a master bedroom,a master bathroom on the countertops, you can put it in an elegant kitchen on the island.

There’s a number of places this can go.

There’s I think 36 colors in this typicalbrand and there’s lots of other brands out there that make this kind of product.

There’salso the terra classics which are from recycled glass and they have a number of the… here’sthe typical natural colors that are from the earth, and then they’ve gone and expandedand added all the new colors, they’ve got some great colors, the citrine, aquamarine,peridot, sapphire, they even have like a purple sapphire which is a light lavender, and theseare colors, these are like decorator colors and they’re still in you know, you can usesomething like this recycled glass tile.

You can also use something like this one here,it’s a reconstituted concrete, paper, and fly ash in this one.

It’s solid, I’veactually personally not seen this one on counters yet, but with it coated with a sealer it’sbeautiful, it’s got a real smooth solid color to it, and it looks just like a firedclay tile without the ceramic on the top.

You would just have to seal it with a naturalclear sealer.

So that’s one of the other options there.

Home Interiors Home Decor Color Tutorial Hi I'm Jill Weadick, personality design specialistand CEO of Home Stylus.

In this video, I'm going to teach you how to find your perfect,unique, personalized colors for your home decorating.

You know there is so much vibrantcolor in nature and the best places to find this vibrant color are flowers.

What I don'twant for you is for you to be overwhelmed by choosing colors for your home.

There areso many choices out there and it can be really overwhelming.

What I want instead for youis that you have a really clear idea of what favorite colors really fit you and your personality.

One of the best ways to do that is by findingabout five different colors of flowers, just bringing them home, putting them in differentjars, different vases.

You live with them for a while maybe a week or so.

Grab yourphone and take pictures of your favorite flowers.

I want you to notice all the different colorsin each flower.

So, each flower is going to have probably 10 different shades of colorjust in that single flower.

So, you have all kinds of options in the color categories.

What you can do from that point is go back to the paint store and choose some differentcolors in that color family, bring them home, play around with the different color varietiesuntil you find some combos that really fit you and your personality.

I hope that was helpful to you.
