(NC)—According to home decor experts, 2011 will mark the introduction of a new approach to interior design – the “Healthy Home”. Honest architecture and the mantra of Zen are already playing out in interior spaces that feature natural finishes and clean lines. Making homes a healthier environment to live in is also a prime concern with homeowners, as shown by the demand for low VOC paints, stains and materials, as well as natural wood cabinets, furniture and floorings.
Certain manufacturers are more than answering the call for healthier, eco–friendly home decor options by setting new trends in “green” product innovation.
