New Orleans bedroom

Soothing neutrals + cool blues: New Orleans bedroom from Domino magazine
For its final issue (sob), Domino rolled up its sleeves to help out a community still feeling the effects of Katrina. The result is a home that's sustainable in every sense of the word—made of healthy materials, affordable to maintain and cozy to live in.

No chemicals in this sleep haven: organic cotton sheets, pure wool blanket (yes, it does get chilly in NOLA sometimes!) and natural latex mattress. Even the wall covering is biodegradable, printed with water-based inks on a PVC-free backing.
