Three interior designers from Modenus BlogTour NYC 2014 visited with BLANCO at the Architectural Digest Show in New York to share their tips for celebrating Earth Day.
Jeanne Chung from Cozy Stylish Chic, Typhanie Peterson from Typhanie Peterson Design and Deborah Main from Deborah Main Design shared their view on how to create a eco-friendly home environment in honor of Earth Day which falls on April 22, 2014.
Peterson says that using LED lighting or dimmers would be a great way to save energy and the Californian says that the trend to save home energy is on the rise in her state. “Use motion sensors,” states Peterson. “If you aren’t in the room, the lights go off, that way you are saving electricity which is big in California for us.”
Main says that she would focus more on conserving water. “I’m from Austin, Texas where water conservation is crucial so we are very conscious about saving water,” states Main.
Chung says that bamboo flooring is sustainable and responsibly harvested. She also says that looking for manufacturers who are members of the Sustainable Furnishings Council is a good way to learn more about eco-friendly products. The designer also says that installing high efficiency toilets is also a good way to save water.
