Show Me Your Eco Chic Casa!

When I first ran this photo in a Casa Beta post, reader albelia asked what color the walls were. I thought it was only polite to get back to her — it's Marina Isle, from Behr. But be warned — it is definitely more minty than grey green, and guests have commented that the color seems to change shade before their eyes. I love it though. I love it even more because I used a low VOC base, which helped to make my entry eco chic.

Have you made any changes in your home that are a little eco chic? Finished any big or small projects? 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!

lovely colour. I recently set up a timer to automatically turn off my electronics at 1am ( i am usually up until just past then - reminds me to go to sleep!) and turns on at 9am. i don't think this is what you have in mind, though. :) i also got an antique bench recently...that is eco-chic, no? i already submitted pics of that.

I love the wall color too. I'm so glad someone else asked that.
