Everyone is “Going Green” today.  You hear the term in the tv commercials, your favorite decorating shows and there’s all sorts of new products that have hopped on the train.  It isn’t anything new, just a fresh awareness of the importance of being green.   

I know what you’re thinking… “what does this have to do with decorating?”  Everything!  Beyond the new home building materials, the cleaning products, the renew, reuse and recycle things you can do to help your enivornment; you can use these same concepts in decorating. 

Adding real green plants to every room is a great way to start.  Every room deserves a little “life” by simply adding plants using the same ideas from “Decorating with a Collection.”  Use baskets or similar containers to hold the plants and place them in groups of uneven numbers or an unusual or large plant can stand alone.  There must be a balance of using green plants in a room as with any other decorating element.  Also, using natural items such as shells, rocks, drift wood in recycled containers to hold them brings a bit of nature indoors.
