With so many great posts in a year, it's mean to make me pick just 10. (I never knew that Re-Nest had a sadistic side.) That said, I chose these based on style, multifunctionality, and green living habits. Read more for the full details on my 10 favorite posts of 2010.
My Favorite Posts from Re-Nest
- The Many Uses of the Mighty Helmer from IKEA: This rolling drawer unit is the Mighty Mouse of multifunction and space organization. It's small, inexpensive, and organizes everything but the kitchen sink. When placed side by side, it gives you counter space for even more function.
- Lyndsay and Fitzhugh's Summer Cottage in the City: This bright, comfortable, artistically styled space is a dream.
- How To Waste (Almost) Nothing In The Kitchen: One of the best things about modifying habits for greener living is that it's the gift and keeps on giving. Since I've switched to cloth napkins and cleaning rags, I haven't purchased paper napkins or paper towels in years! If napkins get stained, don't despair, simply dye them a deeper color in the washing machine. (See the post Rit dye for details.)
- Nick and Rachel's Creative Warehouse Loft: I love this open space with minimal belongings. Its emptiness has a beauty of its own.
- Angie's 'Something Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue': As one commenter put it, I love the way the old is blended with the new.
- 100 Days Without Oil : This post's strength lies in its ability to get you thinking about how our habits translate into oil consumption. Most of us have habits that we are innocently unaware is unnecessarily wasteful, things like taking more than one paper towel to dry your hands in public restrooms. If we thought about how our habits translate into gallons of petroleum, I think many of us would modify some of our behaviors.
- 18 Ways To Conserve Energy In Your Home: Money, money! These are habits that are as good as money in your pocket.
- Paul and Lisa's Green Dream Home: A geometric atrium in the middle of skyscrapers and blue sky? Aah.
- Survey: What Habits Can You Green?: This was a great list put together from all of your answers. Thanks for sharing your extremely practical, everyday habits for living greener.
- Green Style: Teeny Tiny Luxury Tree House: This tree house made the list because it's a bit fantasy and a bit retreat, all rolled into one.
