{eco} design: Cottage Charm

A very cute cottage.  Country Home restored an old, dilapitated carriage house and created a charmed getaway.  I've included a few of my own sources to help you get this look, eco style!

Find a slip covered sofa that contains formaldehyde free foam and FSC Certified wood at Ikea!
Browse Etsy for vintage prints.

For linens like these, try Transylvanian Images, purveyor of linens made of recycled grain sacks, fair trade by women in Transylvania.

For eco friendly stationary, try my personal favourite, Night Owl Paper Goods.

For FSC Cabinets, seek out Umbrella Cabinets from Toronto. 

AFM Safecoat has safe, non-toxic paints for floors and ceilings.  Try 'Snow White' for a shade similar to this.

Plover Organic has lovely organic linens.

  1. This photographs are awesome. I like your idea of planting upside down is visually interesting, it helps save water and space. The kitchen herb idea is unique and best.
