Outfit to Room... Eco Chic

I absolutely adore Alabama Chanin and if you couldn't guess they are based right here in Alabama. Each piece is handmade locally and use recycled and organic materials. I am so excited to be able to include them in not only my outfit to room series, but also my eco-friendly week.

This outfit as an entry way...

{via Lee Industries}

A lovely place to sit to pull on your rain boots.

{via Pottery Barn}

Reclaimed wood side tables would make a nice spot for keys and mail.

{via Stray Dog}

A mirror to check your lip gloss on the way out.

{via pieces, of course}

An old vine basket made into a light fixture fitted with a florescent light bulb of course.

{via pottery barn}

A natural fiber sisal rug would be cozy under foot.

Yes, I know this pillow is quite literal, but it is much too scrumptious not to share.


For this outfit to room I used more earth friendly options, but the best way to do it would be to buy local. Also, this room is so me. Just add one pop of color or shine then it would be perfect for my home. I just adore texture.

Have a happy weekend!

Great transformation again, Paula. I love that settee and the lamp, sigh, so beautiful. Ikea actually has a similar version. I too heart those stumps stools, I got mine at West Elm and they are so versatile.

Happy Weekend!

Excellent taste, darling! I love the wooden coffee tables. I remember when Martha did those in her magazine but painted the tops sky blue and oatmeal. *sighs* Such a good idea!

I've been drooling over the tree stump tables myself lately. I can think of about 3 different spaces in my home to use them. They are perfect!
