going "green".

As most of you know I have a degree in Interior Design {with minors in Art and Architecture}.  I have owned my own Interior Design business {White Pine Design, Inc.} for 5 years now {wow, five years I can't believe it}.  I have always enjoyed Interior Design.

I was laying in bed last night thinking about ways I could more easily share what I love.  I am not really interested in staring an Interior Design blog {to many of those out here} - but I would like to somehow share with you {my faithful audience} a few of my favorite ID tips and tricks and what is "hot" and what is "not"!  I hope you can find some easy and inexpensive {or FREE} things you can do in your own home to help it have a designer feel.

My first post... going "green".  Did you know GREEN is one of the new 'it' colors.  Crazy.

okay -
I am not sure any of you are going to run out and paint your living room GREEN {like pictured above}.  I don't blame you!  I am not sure I would either!  But, there is something you can do to incorporate green into any room in your house {maybe start with you front room}.

Here is the perfect example.  Start by adding a GREEN plant to a room.  I have always used plants in my designing.  Recently I have been trying to keep a few live plants alive!

Don't you love these chairs, I do!

Here is a new addition to my bedroom.  I new live green plant.  Wish me luck!

I hope you learned something new from this post - and I hope you try to incorporate green into your home.  I was thinking it would be fun to feature you.  Take a picture of how you have incorporated green into your home and email me at camillesimons(at)gmail(.)com
