Designer Tips for Decorating With Sustainability in Mind
In this episode of Houzz TV Live, designer Susan Van Meter of SVM Interiors in London talks with Kiya Kelly of the Houzz communications team. Van Meter shares advice on incorporating sustainable practices into interior design. Sourcing local products reduces C02 emissions. Choosing wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council can promote responsible forest management. And using paint that is nontoxic or low in VOCs (volatile organic compounds) helps create healthy indoor air.
Van Meter also highlights several renovation projects in which she incorporated sustainable practices for her clients and offers suggestions for homeowners who want to do the same.
