In the master bedroom, the walls shimmer with a seductive pewter-hued faux finish. Lia wanted a damask effect, so Rider again collaborated with Caroline Lizarraga, who worked her magic by creating a textured metallic surface with water-based glazing.
The bed’s decorative pillows are made with vintage recycled fabrics and new natural and untreated materials. Rider encourages homeowners to use organic hemp, linen, and cotton fabrics that are dyed with soy-based inks. And for a more healthful and peaceful slumber, look for upholstery and mattresses with natural rubber, wool, and cotton fillings, she says.
Locally made glass table lamps on the bedside tables cast a warm glow. Endlessly recyclable, glass is a green choice, Rider says, as is buying from local artisans.
