Celebrity Homes - Alicia Silverstone's Elegant Eco- home

One of my favorite celebrities is Alicia Silverstone. The "Clueless" actress is not just about fame and beauty( well a quirky kind of prettiness), she is also known for being an animal rights and environmental activist. Her house in LA is an eco- friendly home. In an interview with InStyle Magazine , Silverstone opened up about the steps she took in make her living area more green.‘I love living this way,’ Alicia tells the mag. ‘It’s so satisfying and inspiring.’ The actress, shares her L.A. home with musician hubby Christopher Jarecki, has long campaigned to save the environment, and she’s found inventive ways to be green-conscious at home, whether it’s using energy-saving appliances, putting solar panels on the roof, or even recycling the flooring from an old bowling alley to make her table top.”
 "Everything we've brought into this house is environmentally sound," declares the actress. With the recent installation of a well-engineered heating and cooling system, her home now draws half as much power from the grid as it used to.
 
The home was decorated by L.A. designer Sasha Emerson who is known for her playful and free-spirited work. Her signature style has been incorporated in Alicia's home with a mix of modern and vintage furnishings, colorful textiles and bold use of eccentric art and accessories, give her designs a distinctive sense of whimsy.
Her living room sofa, which is upholstered in organic-cotton velvet also has the bookcase wood is from a tree that fell on its own.
In the kitchen's breakfast nook an ornate sofa is paired with weathered metal chairs and a rustic table. The pillows are covered with re-purposed sheets.
Her patio is furnished with plantation grown teak and folding chairs made of recycled wine barrels.

New in store : Pintuck / pleated throw pillows

 Pin tucks or pleats are a lovely way to add character and dimension to solid throw pillows. They also tend to add style and personality to an other wise flat, solid bedding. When I came across some pleated bedding from West Elm that I loved , I wanted to do something softer and more cost effective for Comfyheaven.com

Our range of pleated throw pillows and cushion covers comes in turquoise, brown, white and beige, The fabrics used are linen and art silk. The soft pleats are made by gathering the fabric at certain places and securing their position with a stitch or tuck. These make wide pleats or pin tucks that are soft and loose. We also custom make these in a range of sizes from 16 inch toss pillows to large 26 inch euro shams.
