Sustainable design provides immediate personal benefits as it often lowers short and long term costs and increases indoor air quality.
Longer-term and profound benefits to the planet as a whole are achieved as people increasingly embrace this trend. I use basic and proven principals that may be incorporated into traditional, transitional and contemporary interiors:
Reduce the use of harmful chemicals in finishes, textiles and furniture in your home or office for immediate health benefits to you and your family.
Reuse the sun's energy for heating and cooling through intelligent application of finishes to capture passive energy. Save on utility bills and enjoy a more comfortable home or office.
Recycle what you already have. Fresh eyes may see options using existing furnishings and pieces that may have been overlooked. You might not need to purchase as much as you think to achieve the look and feel you desire.
Sustainable design has come a long way in the last few years. Ethical, low chemical, recycled source materials do not come at the premium they once commanded. Although there are many exciting new technologies that are earth friendly, many of the more sustainable practices have quite a long history and can be easily adopted by anyone at little or no additional cost.
