If you want to have a beautiful green home, then I have a book you need to read! Author Lori Dennis has created a masterpiece in this must-have book for all those interested in keeping their home beautiful while being more eco-friendly. In fact, this book can show you how to make your home even more beautiful by "going green"! Green Interior Design is loaded with color pictures that really draw your attention.

I love all the hints, tips and how-to's contained in this book!
"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

- 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."
