The Green Scene...Alys Beach...

Domestically grown wood, low VOC paint and energy star appliances highlight the kitchen...

Alys Beach is an eco-community in Florida on the northern Gulf coast and this is a model home designed by Georgia Carlee of Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. Alys Beach is a planned community with attractive buildings and houses just a 5 minute walk from shopping, offices and restaurants. There are lots of sidewalks to encourage residents to walk everywhere. The model home is a truly eco-conscious design project from the kitchen to the exterior of the house. 

100% cotton fabrics by naturalLee by Lee Industries, woven wood blinds and 100% wool rugs...

Shelves and bedside table made with recycled wood, linen bed panels and curtains and 100% wool rug in the bedroom...

Outdoor fabrics by Sunbrella highlight the veranda...Sunbrella is fade-resistant,  certified as low in chemical emissions and safe to use indoors too.


The beautiful architecture inspired by homes in Bermuda and Guatemala...

The whitewashed buildings stay cool and the houses have courtyards to keep Gulf breezes flowing through all the time...
