Glamorous and Green

By Decorology @decorology_blog
Once I own a home I hope to make it as green as I possible can. Luckily, "greenifying" your home no longer means uglifying it, and technology is coming down in price everyday. I've noticed many progressive cities are getting more and more green restorations in historic homes, like this one in Toronto. Enjoy!

Here are 5 green things the owners did to improve the space:
1. Complete Geothermal Retrofit

4. Used Zero VOC paints
5. Furnished with antique and vintage furniture
Not too shabby huh?
