What Is Sustainable Design?

Sustainable design is another term for green design or eco-friendly design. Basically it means designing in such a way as to be able to continue doing it the same way indefinitely.

Why I Enjoy Interior Design

It wasn’t until the green movement really started to take hold a few years ago that I felt I was really making a positive difference in people’s lives on a daily basis beyond the aesthetic thrill they would get when I was done. This has made me love my job even more.

Why Am I Going Green?

Today, I choose organic, locally grown foods whenever possible. I bring my own canvas bags to the grocery store, to the hardware store, to the library, and to the mall. I use non-toxic, biodegradable, concentrated cleaners in my home, and I present environmentally friendly design options to my clients whether they are outright eco-conscious or not.

Who Am I?

Generally, I am conservative but this is mixed with a sense of adventure.
