Heyyyyo! We're doing something a little different on Root + Revel today: an interior design post.

Some of you may remember that we moved into a modern farmhouse last October and ever since we've been hard at work decorating, gardening, moving furniture around, repainting, you name it.

Having a baby on the way definitely gave me a big push to get everything done before he arrives–plus, I've been nesting like nobody's business.

So how exactly does an interior design post fit in with Root + Revel, a wellness blog? Well, for starters: the very definition of holistic health is the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the physical symptoms of a disease.

I truly believe that health isn’t just about how many calories we consume or how many minutes we spend on the treadmill; rather true and lasting wellness is understanding ALL of the parts or our health as intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole.

And the psychology of design and creating a safe, comfy, happy place to call home has been proven to boost mood, reduce stress, provide peace of mind and increase our overall sense of wellbeing.

Plus, we always tie in eco-friendly materials and natural elements in our design, which provide their own health benefits. Take living plants, flowers and greenery, for example, which purify the air, improve concentration and productivity, and boost happiness as the result of bringing nature indoors.

Or smart technology, which cuts utility costs and reduces energy usage.

And if that weren't enough–we've been upping the amount of home-related posts we're sharing lately. Because R+R is a site connecting people to the resources they need to create a safe, beautiful home, full of memories and traditions, sans toxic chemicals and harmful products. It’s a site bursting with advice for people ready to celebrate life, nourishing our bodies and our souls along the way.

Alright, enough with the justification. At the end of the day, I just love to share my personal experiences with you guys, what's happening in my life and what I'm passionate about, busy with, working on, etc. And at this moment in time, it's my house.

Specifically my new office design. Because honestly, look how pretty?!

First, let's check out this before photo:

How could I not share this with you guys?

My home office is where the “magic happens”. It's where I write 99% of my posts for Root + Revel (when I'm not writing from our front porch), it's where I respond to hundreds of emails from my readers, partners and team every day, it's where I research the crap out of everything food and wellness related.

And now, with this new makeover, it's truly my happy place. It really is amazing how much we are impacted by our physical space.

So come on in, take a look around, curl up on my new cozy chaise (just push the two sleeping cats out of the way, they won't mind!) and let's do this thing.

Welcome to my Home Office!

Chic Modern Industrial Office Reveal

My home office design scheme is a bit more modern and feminine than the rest of the house–hey, it's the only space that's just mine, right?!–though it definitely melts into the rest of our home's style, which I'd describe as midcentury modern farmhouse meets California cool meets rustic industrial country living..haha, how's that for a mouthful?

When we first moved into the house, the entire space (I'm talking every last wall) was painted a soft gray. Not offensive by any stretch, but totally bland and way too matchy-matchy.

I thought about adding some textured elements to the walls of my office–how cool would exposed brick look?–but ultimately decided to do something a bit moodier. We painted the space a deep navy (Benjamin Moore Washington Blue) with white trim and accents (like our sliding barn door) in Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace.

I'll be honest–I was scared it would feel like a dark dungeon in here, but it's the exact opposite. I love the moody feel, and we still get plenty of natural light, so it never feels too dark.

I love the way muted, dusty pinks and oranges look with navy, so when I found this tribal rug at Rejuvenation, I knew it would be perfect.

To offset all the bold colors, we went with white and natural wood furniture with brass accents. I was so stoked to find this modern Rattan-style storage cabinet at Crate + Barrel. I knew I wanted closed storage since the baker's rack provided plenty of open shelving–and even better, the plantation-grown teak is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), a nonprofit organization that encourages responsible management of the world's forests.

Clearly, you can see I've loaded up the space with plenty of plants–I can't tell you how inspiring and refreshing it feels to work in a space teeming with life.

Perhaps my favorite area in my home office is the chaise–it's the perfect place to curl up with a book, watch B-School videos on my iPad, or just respond to emails when I'm tired of sitting at my desk. So stinking cozy, especially with the softest blanket ever draped over you.

Clearly the cats love it too!

Home Office Design: Cost

I do want to take a second to talk about cost. I'm a firm believer in splurging on certain pieces (usually those that are large furniture items and/or something you want to last a lifetime) and saving on accessories (you'll see most of my pillows, planters, lamps, etc. come from Target and Home Goods).

I'm also super fortunate in that my mother is an interior designer and so I usually get at least 20% off retail stores, like West Elm and Crate and Barrel, and am able to purchase furniture from trade-only showrooms, like my favorite Four Hands, at wholesale cost. This adds up BIG TIME!

Another way I'm able to save–I buy discounted gift cards and always use coupon codes. Whenever I have a purchase over $100, I go to sites like Cardpool.com and Raise.com and am able to save an additional 5-20% on my purchase, even after applying coupon codes.

To get the best promo codes and cash back savings or frequent flier points, I almost never shop without using Retailmenot.comEbates.comJoinhoney.com, CouponCabin.com, EVReward.com or ChaseUltimateRewards.com. I love using the Chrome extensions these companies offer, so that coupon codes are automatically applied at checkout.

I also use Paribus and Slice to alert me to price drops so that even if something goes on sale after I've made the purchase, I can request a price adjustment to save even more.

Tips for a healthier home

Here are some eco-friendly home care tips for a healthy and green living:
  • Switch your cleaning products to eco-friendly options. You can find many of these in the grocery store and online.
  • Use sustainable materials for furniture, such as wood instead of plastic or metal. This will help create less waste and reduce the amount of natural resources that are used to produce them.
  • Choose lightbulbs with little or no mercury. These not only create less waste but also have an impact on climate change by using less electricity.
  • Plant trees around your property. Trees benefit the environment by providing shade, absorbing carbon dioxide, and purifying the air with their leaves. They also provide fuel for firewood during colder months and a habitat for wildlife. The benefits of planting trees go far beyond what you see right in front of you!

Green cleaning products

One way to make your home more eco-friendly is by switching over to green cleaning products. These products aren’t as harsh on the environment as traditional household cleaners and are less likely to cause allergies or other health issues. Plus, you can find a variety of green cleaning products that work for every type of surface in your home.

Switching to eco-friendly cleaning products

There are many cleaning products that you can use in your home that are environmentally friendly. One of the best ways to start is by switching to eco-friendly cleaning products. Many people don’t know that there are many types of eco-friendly cleaning products on the market today, including laundry detergent and dishwasher soap. A switch to green cleaners can be a simple way to create an environmentally friendly living environment.

Safer and more environmentally friendly ways to clean your home

If you want to make your home safer and more environmentally friendly, then you can switch from using toxic cleaning products to using eco-friendly alternatives. For example, if you want to clean your toilet, then you could use vinegar instead of bleach or other harsh chemicals. Vinegar is a natural disinfectant and deodorizer, so it will do the job without harming the environment. You can also use baking soda as a healthy alternative to many household cleaners. Baking soda is an abrasive cleaner that breaks down dirt and grime; it’s also non-toxic, so it won’t harm people or the environment. It’s also inexpensive, so you can use it liberally without worrying about running out of supply too quickly.

Sustainable living

Most people are more aware of the environment these days and want to do their part to make it a better place. Homeowners and renters alike are doing everything from switching to environmentally friendly cleaning products, to using sustainable materials for furniture. Here are some tips for living an eco-friendly lifestyle in your home:
    • Clean with white vinegar – You can use this as a natural disinfectant that is also eco-friendly. It is also inexpensive and easy on your pipes because you won’t be putting harsh chemicals down the drain.
    • Avoid aerosol cans – Aerosol cans contain harmful chemicals that will release into the air when sprayed. Try switching to an eco-friendly product or find another way to clean.
    • Use reusable napkins – Napkins, paper towels, toilet paper, even facial tissue all come wrapped in paper (or other packaging). Reusable napkins or dish towels will give you one less thing you need to throw away every day!
    • Put up a clothesline – Even if you live in an apartment or condo where putting up a clothesline isn’t possible, there are many ways you can still dry your clothes without using electricity or gas. For example, hang them outside on a sunny day or turn your oven on low heat and hang them from the top rack.

Living with less waste in your home

One of the best ways to reduce your ecological footprint is by reducing the amount of waste that your household produces. Take a look at what you’re throwing away and try to find alternatives.
For example, instead of buying disposable napkins, use cloth napkins that you can throw into the wash. If you need face wipes for removing makeup, consider making them yourself from reusable materials like cotton rounds. And if you want to stop using plastic bags, use canvas bags or have bags made from recycled material. There are many other ideas for eco-friendly alternatives in your home as well.

Sustainable materials for furniture

Did you know that the average American generates over 4 pounds of waste every day? This means that we are throwing away a lot of furniture and other items in our homes. To stop contributing to this problem, it is best to use sustainable materials for furniture. Sustainable materials are made from recycled materials which can be up-cycled into new products. Not only are these items better for the environment, but they also save money because the items will last longer.
Sustainable materials for furniture include:
      • Recycled plastic
      • MDF
      • Plywood
      • Timber reclaimed from old buildings or driftwood
      • Bamboo
      • Faux leather (made from cotton)
The pursuit of a healthy, green and sustainable home is achievable for anyone. It will require more time and effort, but the payoff will be worth it.
Start with the small things. Make a conscious effort to recycle, turn off appliances and lights when you’re not using them, and check your thermostat. It’s easy to get into a routine of living without giving it much thought, but the more you make an effort, the easier it will be to live sustainably.
After you’ve made changes in your everyday life, look for furniture that is made with sustainable materials. You can also buy an eco-friendly houseplant for your home that requires little care.
