Eco House


I’ve posted some Eco friendly houses before (here and here) and I’m happy to share yet another environmental friendly house with you. When green materials first started, we often saw very cold and minimalist Eco houses, but we now see that things have changed for better. Eco houses can be like any house in the neighborhood, all you need to do is make some important but relatively easy changes.

The renovation of this Eco house was done by Harry Braswell Inc. using Virginia Kitchen’s design services (Erin Hoopes). This completely custom renovation was Eco-friendly and is obtaining leed certification.

The designer used Benjamin Moore’s Gray Owl on the walls and Decorators White on trims throughout the house.

I hope you enjoy seeing this beautiful Eco house.


Eco House

Welcoming elegance.



Isn’t it inviting?


I love the runner on the stairs. Very unique.


Dining Room

The dining room is elegant without being overdone.



I love this chandelier and the iridescent wallpaper.



Color: Benjamin Moore “Gray Owl” 2137-60.



Keep it simple. You can find these chairs here.



The kitchen is the masterpiece of this house.



I can picture a beautiful family cooking together in this kitchen.



The floors are oak.



Stunning sink and faucet.



The gorgeous backsplash can be found here.



The pendants are by Niche Modern and this is a discontinued kohler sink.



The countertops are quartzite “white princess”.



The cabinets are BM Decorators white.



The bar stools are by CB2.


Eating Area

How perfect is that?



Wall color: Benjamin Moore Grey Owl.



Useful and beautiful.


Family Room

Neutral doesn’t need to be boring.


Favorite Flowers

Keep it natural.



The sectional is by Lee Industries and is upholstered in “Riva Dune” linen.



I’m a big fan of built-in, you can always hide things and keep everything under control.



This bathroom was really well-designed. I love the choices of materials found here.






Paint Color: BM Decorators white, custom cabinets and trim.



Who wouldn’t love to have this closet, right?



Closet dimensions: 4′ 6″ x 6′, light fixtures are from



Tiles are Walker Zanger, “Arabesque Field” from their Tuileries series of glazed ceramics.


Boy’s Bedroom

This is so fun!



Wall Color: Benjamin Moore Grey Owl, light fixture by horne.



A place to get dressed and play!


Kids’ Bathroom

What a cute idea for a kid’s bathroom! Owls are from House & Hold, the cute sink is from Duravit, the floor is a penny round purchased from Mod Walls grouted with a contrasting grey grout and the wall mosaic can be found here.



Beautifully done.


Guest Bathroom

I love this vanity. Sources: Floors from architectural ceramics, sink and vanity are from Restoration Hardware, similar light fixtures can be found here.



What do you think? Isn’t it a stunning place? I love seeing houses that are doable and real like this one.

I’d love to know what you think of this house and its design.


I also want to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian readers. I hope you’re having a great time with your family. We’ll be having some turkey today! Yummmm 🙂

Have a blessed week, my friends.

A BIG hug to all of you!!!

    Lovely renovation. Everything looks new while in keeping with the traditional lines of the home. This raises all kinds of questions in my mind: how old was the house? What did they do to make it eco-friendly and LEED? Was it torn out to the studs (to insulate the walls) and extensively rebuilt on the interior? How expensive a project was it? If you can direct me to a site with any of these answers, I’d appreciate it.
