Green this Look! Picture Wall Living Room

Aug 2, 2011

The main features in our Green this Look! inspiration today include a beautiful picture wall, vibrant turquoise chairs, and a relaxing daybed. The repeating picture frames add to the architectural look of the room. This room can only be improved by making it eco-friendly! Find out how by reading more...

To Recreate This Look

  • Using two chairs you already own, paint them turquoise with low VOC paint.
  • If you already own a table that's a bit worn for the wear, no problem here. Cover it with an organic tablecloth.
  • Using multiples of the same picture frame, hang a cluster in a grid-like pattern. (Tip: Write on small sections of tape, rather than directly on your wall in order to have the option to reposition your marks and to prevent dirtying your wall.)
  • Hang only black and white maps. The uniformity in color and subject matter gives this room subtle sophistication. (Shown here: 19th-century military maps of France, commissioned by NapolĂ©on III.)
  • Using two small side tables you already own, paint them white with low VOC paint.

The Find It! products listed here reflect a contemporary and eco-friendly take on this traditionally styled room. The color palette is the same.
