HOME DECOR IDEAS THAT ARE PLANET FRIENDLY Going glam and being green don’t need to be mutually exclusive, especially when it comes to decorating your home. Makers of furniture and home decor items have started incorporating environmentally friendly practices and materials into their products, allowing consumers to have greener households without compromising their personal style.

Home accessories are a quick and easy place to start if you’re just looking to add some small revitalizing touches to your rooms. Pillows made from antique linen grain sacks that were once common in Europe add rustic-chic texture without being uncomfortable. To add a pop of color to your couch, drape it with a throw made from a natural material and eco-friendly dyes. To add a touch of social consciousness, choose from a multitude of throws made by indigenous communities in developing countries, like luxurious alpaca blankets from Peru or mohair from Swaziland. Decorative bowls made from reclaimed wood add a touch of natural beauty, as do driftwood or Manzanita branches. Be cautious about adding some natural touches, though - coral, for instance, is often harvested in ways that are unsustainable and threatening to natural environments. Don’t count out wall decor as a way to express your eco savvy, either. More and more paint companies are trotting out low-VOC (volatile organic compound) paints that are safer to breathe. But if you want to add extra dimension to your walls and make a bolder statement, add wall murals printed on earth-friendly canvas. Sites like MuralsYourWay.com bring beautiful nature scenes right into your home. Not only are their canvas murals made of an

ecologically friendly fabric material, there are over 5,000 options to choose from. You can choose everything from a jungle scene to the Mona Lisa or you can print a photo of your own on their fabric wallpaper. Greening your furniture can be done in multiple ways. If you’re ready to buy new pieces, consult an interior designer, who can weed out items that don’t match your standards. But you can re-use and recycle when it comes to furniture, too - just make sure you revitalize first. Consider re-upholstering items like dining chairs with exotic fabrics that are hand-made or antique. Suzanis, brightly-colored Central Asian textiles in graphic patterns make a great statement fabric, as do boldly embroidered Otomi textiles from Mexico. Ask a designer to help seek them out, or check out exotic import shops - sometimes you can find large examples of these textiles that can be repurposed on your furniture. You can also add new life to pieces already in your home by painting them in one, or a coordinated couple, of the year’s color trends. For 2010, turquoise promises to be big, as do coral, cobalt blue and eucalyptus green - all colors inspired by natural materials. Content provided by ARA

Make Your Paint Job Look Better and Last Longer Now that the weather’s turned cooler and you’re spending more time indoors, there’s no better time to paint. It’s one of the easiest and least expensive ways to change the look of your home. It’s also a project that even the most inexperienced doit-yourselfer can do with confidence. With thousands of colors from which to choose, it’s the perfect way to express your unique style and personality at a fraction of the cost of other home improvement projects. Yet even experienced do-it-yourselfers sometimes neglect the first and most important step in achieving the perfect paint job.

Professional painters know that the key to a beautiful paint job isn’t buying the most expensive paint. They know that one coat of primer and one coat of paint will give them a better, longerlasting paint job than two coats of paint. That’s why they prime first, then paint. “Paint is formulated with more pigment than resin to provide rich, beautiful color. Primers are resin-rich to provide the ideal foundation for paint,” says Frank Glowacki, Zinsser Primer brand director at Rust-Oleum. “You can’t expect a paint, or a paint-and-primer-in-one product to do the job of a high quality stain-blocking primer. Having a sealed, stain-free surface is the key to getting the best paint job possible, and this is accomplished by using one coat of primer and one coat of paint.” Here are just some of the benefits of priming before you paint: * Priming saves you time and money. Primers are formulated to seal the surface - and when the surface is sealed, you use less paint. No more multiple coats of paint to get an even, consistent finish. If you tint a quality primer like Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3, one coat of primer and one coat of paint is usually all you need for a great-looking paint job. Just ask the paint desk to

tint your primer toward the color of your paint. Since a gallon of primer is less expensive than a gallon of paint, you’ll save money too. * Priming makes paint colors richer. Primers hide previous colors -eventhedarkestbluesanddeepestreds-andpreventthemfrom showingthroughandchangingthecolorofyourpaint.Yourpaint colors will be more vibrant and beautiful if you prime first. * Primers block stains. Most stains - water stains, crayon and marker, lipstick or nicotine - will bleed right through paint. This is whereprimersearntheirreputation: they seal in stains and prevent them from ruining your paint job. New advanced technology water-base primers like Bulls Eye 1-2-3 PLUS taketheguessworkoutofprimerselectionbecausetheyblockallstainseven water stains - so you start your paint job with a clean canvas. * You can paint anything if you prime first. If you’ve ever tried to paint a slick surface like vinyl or plastic with paint alone, chances are it just didn’t stick. Primers are formulated for tenacious paint adhesion to all surfaces, so you can paint anything - even ceramic tile and Formica cabinets - when you use a primer as your first coat. * Primers make your paint job last longer. Primers prevent common paint problems like cracking, peeling and blistering and your paint will retain its original color longer, so you’ll have to paint less often. Content provided by ARA
