What Houzz contributors are saying:

Avid readers, the Mays turned the landing of their second story into a sunny library and office. An inviting chaise lounge (a gift passed on to them from family), and tall bookshelves from Ikea define the space as the perfect spot to settle in with the latest read. Wall color: Seafoam from Devine Color
Laura Gaskill added this to Easy Green: 5 Ecofriendly Paint Companies
1. Devine Color, an offshoot of Valspar, offers zero-VOC paint in a wide range of colors. The claim is that this paint is so thick, you need only one coat. The website provides lots of color choosing tips and some gorgeous ready-to-go palettes that make decorating a breeze.Cost: $59.95 per gallon
