Sustainable Interior Design - Not just a pretty picture
This is a great resource Chloe.  The eleven objectives address various aspects of sustainability in design, from reuse and circular economy to ethical business practices.  One of the strengths of the book is its wealth of context, facts and figures to help understand the importance of sustainable design in today's world.  The projects and materials exemplify sustainable design principles in action.  Chloe's commitment to practicing what she preaches, her commitment to design and certification, brings credibility and authenticity.  This book helps understand that you can create beautiful, functional spaces that are also sustainable and ethical.  By breaking down the complex topics into manageable objectives and providing real-world examples, Chloe has created a book that is both informative and inspiring.
