Home Green Home. TOC's Apartment Issue has a decidedly eco slant to it this year, with multiple articles on how to live greener in our city. Renew and Improved is a before and after of a living room the TOC team gave an eco-friendly makeover to...total cost of the redo: $710.
The before is above and the after is below the jump, along with lots of other links to the current issue.
To complete the makeover, they used FLOR tiles, some IKEA products, bamboo shades from Target, pillows covered with recycled content fabric, a cotton/bamboo blanket from Pottery Barn, an organic cotton slipcover from Bed, Bath & Beyond and second hand furniture from the Brown Elephant.
