Show Me Your Eco-Chic Casa

Recently, I stayed at my friends' completely eco-chic casa. You may remember reading about it in this post. What makes living in a big, old schoolhouse so eco chic, you may ask? Well, there's the ratio of people-to-square-footage that's involved (the more people that live in one home, the more energy efficient a home is). Then there's the house's emphasis on reducing, reusing, and recycling. Oh — and also gardening and composting. And last but not least, the crafty chicas who own this schoolhouse are some of the coolest designers I've ever met. This room, the designated guest room, was dubbed "The Room of Restful Sleep" by my guy. I don't know if it was the warm color scheme or the lovely antique bed, but we did have some of the best sleep in recent history in this eco-chic guest bedroom.

Have you recently visited a home that's eco chic? Maybe you're working to make your own home both green and fabulous? Show off all of your home views, both interior and exterior, in my group on TeamSugar called Su Casa, where readers can share snapshots and stories related to home decorating, crafts, organizing, and gardening.

A Su Casa post could be anything from a photo of a loved one's home to a tiny nook you're tickled by. Think of it as a Look Book for home style. If I see something I like in Su Casa, I might feature it on CasaSugar, so don't be surprised if you get an email from me!

To learn how to join and post in the group,


To join the Su Casa group, just follow this link and click "subscribe" beneath the photo on the left-hand side of the page. Once you're subscribed, click Share in the upper left-hand menu of any TeamSugar page and choose what type of post you want to create. If you have just one photo and some text, create a blog; if you have a gallery you want to share, select "photos."

TeamSugar has a great primer on how to create a blog post, so check that out if you've never posted one before. Here's a rundown of the basic process:

  1. Add a Title and the Body (content for your post). Don't forget to click Check Spelling link and Upload an Image to make your post stand out!
  2. Post this to a group? Click on the dropdown menu and select the Su Casa group. You will only be able to see groups you're subscribed to, so if you haven't joined Su Casa yet, you will need to.
  3. Click on the dropdown menu and choose the Home and Garden Channel and add some keywords (use a comma, if needed!) in the Tags text box. Then click "I'm done" to view your post!

Cheap definitely works — and secondhand (pre-loved) furniture is one of the most eco ways to decorate your crib.

i'm beginning to become more eco-friendly, but does cheap work too? I have all used furniture, some my dad built in college minus the book shelves i built in a class.

Huh, we're giant eco-freaks but I don't know that much of the decor is eco-chic...
