domino & TreeHugger's Green List: Wallcoverings


domino magazine teamed up with TreeHugger to create "The Green List," a celebration of green design, and we're taking a closer look at each section of the list. Today, we'll ponder the three ways we picked to spruce up your walls: paint, wallpaper and plaster (check out page 40 of the print mag for the final list). Paints have the most options, with low and no-VOC options for any color palette and taste; among those chosen were YOLO Colorhouse, for their groovy earth tones, Harmony, from Sherwin Williams, Aura, by Benjamin Moore (who swear it only takes one coat to do the job!) and Olympic (available at Lowe's) for their vibrant colors. When it comes to wallpapers and coverings, Phillip Jeffries made the list with their breathable arrowroot-grass cloth, while Woodson & Rummerfield's pop patterns print on recycled paper with vegetable-dye inks made a big splash as well. For a more traditional look, we also liked Lim & Handtryck's patterns, produced with wooden & brass roller techniques. For a texture and look all its own, American Clay Plaster offers a blend of pure clay and non-toxic pigment that transforms any surface, with any color and three different finishes. Whether its color, texture or both that you seek for your walls, the Green List is a great place to start sourcing some great TreeHugger-friendly options. There's more to see at dominomag.com and in the print version on page 40. ::domino's Green List: Wallcoverings -- see it all at ::The Green List
