Down to Earth

I have featured numerous homes and gardens from At Home Arkansas, and they did not disappoint with their latest issue. I love this bright and relaxed home designed by Melissa Haynes. The young family  wanted a 'green' home that was free of toxins and harsh chemicals, energy efficient and yet tranquil and traditional. How did Melissa achieve this?
-No VOC flooring, wallcoverings or paint
-Organic or soy fabrics, sustainable wood frames on furnishings, water-based finishes
-Sustainable materials where possible
-Water filtration system, HVAC improvements and added insulation
-Caesarstone countertops, an abundant natural mineral from a company that emphasizes sustainability

I would say they did a pretty fantastic job! You would never know that this was an eco-friendly home.
