Designing Green - Jessica Helgerson

I've admired designer Jessica Helgerson from Portland, Oregon, for a long time. She designs using the same principles as I do: that although a space must be beautiful, it must be good for you and the Earth too. The house featured below is so fabulously full of good ideas. The white and black palette is carried through the entire home, and the hits of fresh green are exquisite! Jessica is great proof that eco can be ultra-stylish!

Seagrass rugs are a good natural and sustainable flooring option.

There's just something about the colours white and green mixed with wood that I love!

These gorgeous, hand-blown pendant light fixtures are from Niche Modern.

Oooh-la-la! IceStone has green countertops like these.

The bathroom cabinets are made from Kirei Board, a totally sustainable product made with waste material.

Get similar espresso bamboo floors that are seamlessly carried through the entire house at Natural Cork.

Hope you enjoyed that as much as I did!
*I've seen Jessica featured before in the blog world, but she is so fab she can handle the repeats!
