TaaDaa, A New Series …

August 23, 2008 at 2:30 pm 7 comments

Kids Stuff world is happy to announce a new series in our “World” category (Use the link to the right to see our other World post). We think we’ll call it Kids Stuff World’s Virtual Green Living Home, but hey we’re women and therefore subject to change things at a moments notice. Inspired once again by the ever beautiful, Jennae of Green Your Decor. We’ve decided to decorate our very own virtual Kids Stuff World Green Living home.

What does all this mean. It’s really quite simple. Let us explain.

We’ll select an energy award winning modular home built to green living standards to decorate and fill with environmentally friendly furniture, decor, and accessories over the next several months. We’ll post about products we’d love to add to the house and slowly fill each room until we have an entirely furnished, beautifully decorated virtual eco-friendly home on our hands. (Jennae- I hope you’re listening, cause we’re probably gonna need your help with this one.)

What can you do to help? I’m glad you asked. Anytime you’re in a store or surfing the web and you see something you’d like to see featured in the house, leave us a comment linking to it or email us at kidsstuffworld@gmail.com

Let’s get started, the first order of business is to select the home we’d like to use for this series. Of course we want our readers to be just as involved in the process as we are so we’ve left it up to you to decide.

Here are your choices, comment on which one you’d like to feature as Kids Stuff World’s Green Living Home

Option #1: The Bimini

    Both homes are beautiful, but I definitely prefer the Solaro. I hate the fact that the master is immediately off the foyer in the Bimini. And please let me know if you need my help. I love decorating, so I’ll be more than happy to let you pick my brain. In fact, I’d be honored if you’d let me do a room. Feel free to email me šŸ™‚

    I love the idea, but do the houses have to be so large? It loses its environmental appeal when you start thinking about the energy required to heat and cool it. Otherwise it’s a great idea!

    Treehugger did an article on low VOC paints that had alot of suggestions on it. It can be seen at: http://www.treehugger.com/files/2005/10/affordable_low.php

    Good luck with the project!

    Why are they so big? Living eco friendly and sustainably means having a home that is smaller and energy efficient. These are bordering on being mc mansions.

    I definitely see why some commenters would say the homes are too large, but its quite possible to live in a large home that is eco-friendly and completely energy efficient and even off grid. While a smaller home would make it easier to accomplish these tasks, the definition of green is changing. And if you have a large family, a small home isn’t very practical. A mansion? Clearly over the top and a waste of space and resources. A house with enough living space so you’re not all on top of each other? I say go for it.
