Fall is upon us, which means the holidays will soon be here, but don’t worry – we have seven beautiful and eco-friendly home decor pieces that are perfect for warming up your home and welcoming guests just in time for the festivities.
Combine getting your home in tip-top shape with the impending holidays, and you’ve got the recipe for a panic attack. Sometimes, getting your hands on good looking eco-friendly home decor can be hard to do, especially when all your time is being spent breathing heavily into a paper bag. (Just sayin’.)
Luckily, though, I’ve gone ahead and rounded up seven gorgeous pieces that just about anyone would want to have in their home. Take a peek at my choices, and either snag one for yourself, pick one up for a lucky recipient–or glean a little holiday inspiration for the season.
Hello, Gorgeous! I have officially found my new favorite home decor accent. I mean, who doesn’t want a little marble in every room of the house, right? And the best part about this all-cotton throw, aside from the awesome marbled look, is that it’s artisan made and handwoven. Toss this over your favorite chair, and use it to stay toasty on cool fall evenings.
Perfect for the chef of the house, and especially for those easily distracted, burn-the-Tofurky kinda cooks, this beautiful stand with warm, reclaimed wood and steel accents is perfect for nailing all of your holiday recipes. The best part, aside from its sustainability and good looks, is that it doesn’t matter if you prefer old fashioned paper, or a tech-based recipe reader, the stand can easily accommodate either.
Treat your guests and yourself with a soft new rug underfoot. Not only is this modern geometric carpet beautiful, but it’s also ethically made by employees who are of legal working age and treated well. This particular rug is from the eco-cotton collection, which uses clean donated textiles to spin new yarn, so you can give thanks for innovative techniques this season, as well.
We believe good things come in small packages, just like this salt and pepper serving set. A great little story to share around the dinner table is that each one of these is crafted from excess materials from the logging industry, so no new trees are cut down for its making. Recommended for artisanal finishing salts and freshly ground pepper, it’s sure to be a hit.
This vintage tallboy is the perfect accent piece for an entry way, dining space, or living room. Fall decor would look fabulous against its high gloss black finish, and the clean lines work well in a variety of settings. Whether eclectic, modern, vintage, or transitional, a piece like this will really add a lot of style and warmth to any room.
Next time you’re indulging in your hot cocoa and sappy holiday movie ritual, make sure you have this extra fuzzy Ikat pillow to
cry into snuggle up with. Made from natural and sustainable materials, the unique design and conscientious craftsmanship is perfect for the boho-chic decor lover in us all. Trust me, your cat, Mr. Fluffy Pants, will thank you for it.
7. Organic Eclectic Leopard Chair
Be still, my heart! This leopard chair is on the tippy top of my wish list, but if you’re lucky enough to splurge now, then I’d definitely recommend working this into your living room, like now. With organic cotton, natural linen, recycled filling, and certified wood materials, this plush chair is sustainable and stylish. I can totally imagine this chair and that vintage tallboy being BFFs in some special person’s living room.
Don’t hate me ‘cause you want them all! But do relish in their gorgeousness and let the furnishings serve as inspiration for the holiday season. Not only can eco-friendly home decor be warm and inviting, it also proves that being stylish is better for the environment. And, even if your budget doesn’t have the room for new pieces right now, I can definitely see the DIY potential in a lot of these.
