We would love to have you as part of the team.
As you know, the world has already “paved paradise and put up a parking lot,” but thanks to houseplants and reclaimed wood, we can recreate our own microenvironment in the middle of NYC or Tokyo.
For many of us living in the concrete jungle, sitings of cherry blossoms, birds and hydrangea have largely been replaced by skyscrapers, rats and trash. For those who do not have the luxury of visiting Central Park on the reg, we are offering you some solutions to add a beam of light and an extra dose of oxygen to your spaces.
Start with reclaimed wood; it’s readily available, it can be extremely affordable and it adds a natural wood element that helps soften dark spaces. Accompany your reclaimed wood headboard with white or cream bedding for an extra natural look. The next step is lighting. Windows are ideally the solution for here, however, we know most apartments don’t come equipped with floor to ceiling windows. In order to accomplish ample lighting, paint your walls white and add a variety of white lighting fixtures and lamps throughout your space. Don’t forget to recycle your yellow bulbs. Last but not least, buy a house plant. You don’t need a green thumb to keep it alive, just a monthly reminder on your iPhone.
Remember that the interiors of our homes can foster an extremely vivid and refreshing environment reminiscent of your favorite destinations. Add black and white prints in wood frames of a beach bungalow in Costa Rica or a cabin in Alaska to your walls. Take a deep breath of your newly freshened air, turn on your sound machine, and bask in your newly designed ‘green’ apartment.
