I agree entirely with the eco-comments above. Sadly as well, things like the moss wall is actually moss that is fixed in a plastic based coating - not green in any sense of the word except the colour!

Here, here Jenny. We were going to get a kitchen done for us but due to cost have decided to reuse our existing cupboard doors. covering them with MDF and painting them. even though it takes a lot longer, I feel good about not wasting so much wood! As well as saving $$$$. I agree, let's try to repurpose/update rather than simply removing and buying to fit the latest trend.

Good points here, but as said sustainability should NEVER be a trend but a must!!
