Like so many mothers who do it all, Ebony needs a space for herself that not only doubles as a workspace for creating content, but also a place of calm and tranquility as she recharges from busy weeks. It has also been a starting point for her sustainability journey, as she is intentionally refreshing the studio with mindful choices. Ebony already has her plants in there, which literally help breathe life into the space, and she’s relying on Sonoma Goods for Life pieces from Kohl’s for the rest of her decor needs.

Curtains are the focal points of any room, and they’re a great blend of style and function, as they can draw the eye in with an exciting print, while blocking out light. Ebony incorporates the Sonoma Goods For Life Woven Leaf Blackout Window Curtain to uplift her living room while keeping it safe, as they are Oeko-Tex Certified, which means they are made with non-toxic materials and without harmful chemicals.

A fantastic rug is next, which helps tie the room together and is washable, which means she can have it in her home for years to come. She swaps in this Sonoma Goods For Life Ultimate Performance Super Soft Washable Rug for her former version as it looks just as chic. And you can’t complete the cozy vibes without a comfy throw, especially as Ebony is in Chicago and winters get brisk there. She plans to keep warm with this ​​Sonoma Goods For Life The Everyday Cotton Blanket that is super soft and can be used in every room.

Yes, you can make your closet more sustainable: Ebony is living proof. Jeans are among the most-worn pieces in any modern-day person’s wardrobe and Ebony is no exception. She slips on her Sonoma Goods For Life Ultra High Rise Mom Jeans which are REPREVE certified and crafted from recycled polyester while working in her studio, and they’re comfortable enough for her to wear them all day. She loves to pair them with a classic graphic tee or a fall-perfect button-down shirt — sometimes layering the two, which is essential for the cooler seasons.

When Ebony is lounging around, it’s all about sweats, and her Sonoma Goods For Life Everyday Crewneck Sweatshirt and matching Everyday Jogger Pants are super soft and comfortable. What Ebony loves most of all is that her closet is now filled with products that are better for her and the environment.
