When Jessica Alba was pregnant earlier this year, the Razz went into overdrive gathering details on her green nursery and plans to renovate her home to be more eco-friendly. Now, In Style magazine is one of the first to gain inside access to Jessica’s new abode and the new green additions.

“It’s kid-friendly, animal-friendly,” the actress, 27, told the magazine of the L.A. canyon home she shares with husband Cash Warren and their 5-month-old daughter Honor Marie. “You can jump on the sofas, walk around barefoot,” she says in the November issue. “There’s nothing off-limits here.”

Almost every piece of furniture or accessory bought for the home is used — with most of it coming from flea markets and antique shops. Every wall in the home is covered in non-toxic Mythic paint. Additionally, Alba also has a salt-water pool, organic blankets, and non-toxic cleaning products. For baby, a crib and changing table made with sustainable wood and nontoxic paint was draped in linens from Sage Creek Organics.

“The energy here is so inviting – it is open and playful,” says Alba. “And everywhere you look, inside and out, you get to see a part of nature.”
