where green living, parenthood, and interiors intersect

I'm baaack.

I love my blog but I've sure been neglecting it badly. It doesn't matter if the only one who knows that is me (and maybe my sister Margi, my loyal reader). But like renewed vows at a silver anniversary, sometimes a recommitment is in order. So I hearby do solemnly swear to write every day, to channel my findings from the eco-friendly design world back out into the universe, for better or for worse, in busy times and in down times.

And now a sneak peak at one of the things that's kept me so busy: a playroom I'm designing for a TriBeCa condominium building, filled with reclaimed wood paneling and eco-friendly polyesters from KnollTextiles with cradle-to-cradle gold certification for low environmental impact. Add graffiti-inspired signage, vintage arcade games, and cozy reading alcoves, and I'm hoping it will be an urban escape high on style and fun, low on carbon footprint.
