As the weather slowly but surely warms up, I’ve got spring cleaning on the brain. As I switch out my faux fur for florals, my sweaters for shorts, I’m feeling like the house could use a little spring-ification as well.
We all know a coat of paint does wonders for a room. But one of the newest ways to spruce up a home is with some green, sustainable wallpaper.
Now, before you start picturing bamboo walls or a thatch hut, take a look at these wallpaper beauties. All eco-chic and definitely not what you’d picture when you think “tree hugger.”
A gorgeous, very modern floral print in a go-with-everything neutral. The flock design is on crushed, non-woven paper that is breathable and eco-friendly. Floral in Crème-on-Crème (12302) from Bohemien by Arte, $250 per lineal yard.
If you’re more minimalist-urban, a monochromatic pattern adds a layer of texture without detracting from the overall theme.
Leaf in Oyster and Silver (14102) from Zenobia by Arte, printed with water-based inks on breathable, environmentally-friendly non-woven paper, $195 per single roll (minimum order two single rolls).
Of course, a botanical print says “green,” but you don’t want it to compete with your existing furniture. A sage-colored paper like this one is soothing and adds a bit of a tropical getaway feel to the room. It’s made of grasscloth, a renewable resource, so even without the green thumb, you’re still bringing some nature indoors.
Grasses in Green (T5006) from Grasscloth Resource by Thibaut, hand-printed grasscloth made with water-based inks, $126 per single roll.
