With a long list of summer projects, like tearing down wallpaper and painting, I started thinking how to green the process. Are there sustainable designers to turn to for advice?
Then I came across this article on Houzz, “5 Things LEED Interior Designers Want You To Know.”
In the article, Houzz contributor Laura Gaskill points out that LEED interior designers are professionals on a mission. Gaskill explains, “The goal is to create spaces that are both more sustainable for the planet and healthier for the people living in them.”
This is what I like to hear. Sustainability doesn’t have to be confusing. Making green choices can be simple.
Here are four of the driving forces behind LEED interior designers according to Gaskill:
1. Green design doesn’t sacrifice style
2. Don’t be fooled by green labels
3. A healthy home makes for a happy home
4. Embrace the hand-me-downs
