Green Interior Design
Award-winning designer and author Lori Dennis proves interior design can be both stylish and environmentally sustainable in this easy-to-use, entertaining guide. Dennis discusses every aspect of interior design—furniture and accessories, window treatments, fabrics, surface materials, appliances, plants, and more—from a green perspective in terms of reducing waste and pollution and turning a home into a healthy, comfortable environment. Readers will learn how to: - use sustainable materials like bamboo, cork, and recycled glass to enhance interiors - search thrift shops and antique stores for vintage hidden treasures - find the best vendors for purchasing green products - use plants and locally cut flowers to improve indoor air quality and brighten up rooms - replace lawns with indigenous plants and edible gardens - keep rooms clean with effective and nontoxic products - use energy efficient lighting and maximize natural light - apply for different types of green certification. Packed with over 100 color photographs, lists of the best green vendors, and profiles of leading green designers, this book is a thorough guide for anyone who wants to create beautiful interiors while lessening the waste and pollution generated by the building industry.
