Introducing The Green Revolution

Written by

Well hello there! Welcome to The Green Revolution Blog.  I’m Rachel Hulan, IIDA, CID, and I’m really excited at the opportunity to share my knowledge of green interior design with you at HomePortfolio.com.

Green design is about so much more than “doing the right thing”. It’s about creating quality design with lasting value – interior spaces that have style, comfort, and are suitable to the needs of the people using them. If we want beautiful design not just for ourselves, but for generations to come, then we must also create spaces that are sustainable, and not wasteful of resources. Simply put, green design is good design.

I’ve been lucky during my time working in the field of green design to encounter quite a few amazing companies and products. Whether it’s someone creating handcrafted furniture, artisan tile, or organic cotton fabric, I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know many dedicated people who are working hard to create a more sustainable future. I’m looking forward to introducing them to you.

And please, introduce yourself to me! I love getting to know my readers, and having them share their thoughts and ideas. We are all in this green revolution together, so let’s join forces!

Next week I’ll be taking a look at some of the beautiful and amazing things that can be made from recycled glass.
