Zem Joaquin's Green Remodel

Pin it button big

Ouch! Zem Joaquin's house is so pretty it's almost hurts us to look at it. Almost.

Joaquin, eco-editor at House & Garden magazine and creator of the web site ecofabulous, gave her home a full green makeover a few years ago.

Her children had been suffering from serious asthma attacks and, as Zem shares on her site, the improvement in their health as a result of the remodel was dramatic.

And, of course, the house is beautiful. Zem is, essentially, the anti-granola.

She was deliberate in her choices and refused to sacrifice style or quality -- she decided that she would have green and she would have classic and sleek all at the same time. This is not "green" the way most people imagine it.

Her home is featured in the October issue of House & Garden (with a whole slew of amazing photos).

We won't even venture a guess at the price tag. But, the home is breathtaking. And we especially like her kids' rooms!
