I also selfishly want to have a beautiful home. So, if you're like me and you want to give yourself a beautiful place to live on both a global and household level, do what I do and visit Kellygreen Home in Silver Lake in Los Angeles.
Kellygreen Home is the creation of Kelly Van Patter, a designer who focuses on environmentally friendly designs. Not only has she done private residential and commercial projects, but Kelly's worked as a production designer on multiple TV shows. Using all of her experience and her passion for green living, she put together Kellygreen Home, a shop where her customers could feel confident in their purchases. All products are carefully researched to make sure they meet Kelly's high standards of sustainability, eco-friendliness, locally-created, fair trade... No matter what you purchase, you're guaranteed to have a Mother Nature-approved item in your bag.
But enough about the environment -- now back to me! The stuff on Kellygreen Home's shelves is also really cute! These Acacia bowls are perfect for building a vignette on your kitchen or dining table; and these on-the-go utensils will brighten up any boring takeout lunch. I find myself lusting after just about everything in the store!
So the next time you're in the Silver Lake neighborhood of L.A. -- or if you're doing some online shopping -- treat yourself to a visit to Kellygreen Home. Mother Nature will thank you too.
