Feeling more eco-conscious as the weather gets cooler and your heating bill gets higher? If you've ever wondered how you can possibly cut down waste while still looking trendy and pulled together, don't even worry for a minute! There's never been a better time to decorate with a nod to the environment. From fall-friendly vases to outdoor entertaining, here are five super chic ways to decorate your home for the season and please Mother Earth at the same time.
It will be tough to find anything more hip than this wood fragment lamp ($80) made from wood gathered on the San Francisco shoreline. Every piece is unique, which means you'll never be outdone in your neighborhood.
The Green Glass company recycles everything from wine bottles to this creme de menthe bottle to create works of art. This artisan mardi gras vase ($30) will showcase your fall foliage beautifully, and you will have saved a liquor bottle from the trash heap.
You know you want to bust out the s'mores this fall, and this handmade fire bowl ($250) from reclaimed industrial products will give your backyard some serious style. Made in Trenton, New Jersey (where they make, and the world takes), you're keeping it made in the U.S.A. to boot.
Perfect for the person who can't figure out if she's a chandelier lady or not, this recycled cardboard chandelier ($20) is a great accent for fall. You can put it away in spring if you realize you lean more mod and feel okay about the materials ... and the expense.
A quick seasonal fix in the bathroom can go eco with these handmade honeycomb soaps ($5.75) made with all natural materials. Fragrance-free and no essential oils, it's as pure as you can get.
