Beyond Green: Colorful Earth-Friendly Wares

Although I love the earth tones associated with many eco-friendly products for the home, lately I have been drawn to brighter colors. Green doesn't have to be, well, green! Here are some gorgeous hues to brighten up this winter day…

Camilla Hounsell Halvorsen's Drops Pouf, wrapped in multicolored ribbons of recycled upholstery textiles.

Rajboori's Holi Duvet, made of Peace Silk, "the only silk in which the silkworm is allowed to live a full life after emerging from the cocoon that is used to extract the silk."

At left, a custom lamp shade from LiT, which turns old, dilapidated lamps into works of beauty. LiT also uses natural fibers and papers and non-toxic adhesives. At right, bold, bright Organic Exchange Towels from Amy Butler for Welspun.

Coiled Bamboo & Coconut Bowls from Bambu. These colorful modern bowls are made from bamboo strips and coconut shells.

Kyra Doormat by India Rose. Made from 100% coconut fibers, which makes it compostable!
