Fresh Color Ideas for the Home

By Oreeko

Would you ever color your home exterior or interior walls with really funky colors? Depending on the style and decor of your house, choosing the right shade is important.

Unfortunately, paints can be very toxic for both your health and the environment. Paint can still continue to emit fumes months after application causing breathing irritations, headaches and more.

Thankfully, today many paint brands have a variety of solutions that are less toxic. But if you want a to take it a step further and try healthier alternatives for you and your family, you’ll be very happy to know that this is completely doable!

Some really interesting options to the “ugly” paints are: clay, milk paint (containing basic ingredients including milk protein (casein), limestone, clay and natural pigments) by brands such as Homestead House or The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company. How cool is that?! Then what about Anna Sova Luxury Organics paints made with up to 90% food ingredient? The options are rather interesting.
