Eco friendly Kitchens

It is important to preserve our natural resources. There are many new environmentally-friendly building products that are being developed.

For some time now, people are definitely becoming more interested in green alternatives to use in their homes. There are so many options available now that weren’t available a few years ago.

Throughout the years I have my introduced my clients to many eco-conscious makeover options. In lieu of traditional granite for countertops, homeowners are choosing PAPERSTONE—said to be the greenest architectural surface on the market today. PaperStone’s Original series is made from 100-percent post-consumer recycled cardboard; its Certified series originates from 100-percent post-consumer standard office paper. Both types come in a variety of colors, including red, green, blue, brown and gray. It’s perfect for use in kitchens because it’s nonporous.

Another alternative is RECYCLED GLASS KITCHEN COUNTERTOPS. These countertops have colorful recycled glass mixed into a cement, concrete, or resin base. Kitchen countertops can be integrally colored or stained for more variation and color coordination with cabinetry or painted surfaces. Note: As with all counter materials, labor and installation can cost extra and vary by region.
What makes it green are the diverts used glass from

the waste stream. The cement in some counters is mixed with fly ash, a waste product of coal-burning that would otherwise end up in landfills; this also reduces greenhouse gas-producing cement manufacturing. These countertops look beautiful! Check out these samples below and get inspired! The colors are endless!

April showers bring May flowers, and new Interior Design Spring trends!

Is finally here! What a better time to design your home after you finish your spring cleaning. Springtime is the best time of the year to revamp your home and renew your spirit. After the long winter months it is finally time to start fresh. This Spring, I have been inspired by the color YELLOW. Take a look at these images for some inspiration.

Combine a little touch of sky blue...
In the example to the right you can see
that by adding another color the yellow stands
out even more!

What about adding other colors to your home?! Experiment! Don't stick to one color. 

Challenge yourself to a D.I.Y project! Below is an inspiration board that you can use to change any room in the house by simply adding some color!

Drive In Movie via.... BOAT!

Archipelago Cinema is a collaboration between Studio Ole Scheeren and the Film on the Rocks Yao Noi Foundation, founded by Nat Sarasas, Chomwan Weeraworawit and Apichatpong Weerasethakul. It is the first project of Studio Ole Scheeren since he established his architecture practice, Buro Ole Scheeren, in Beijing and Hong Kong in 2010.

With Archipelago Cinema, Ole Scheeren further explores his continued interest in non-architectural projects and interventions, and in creating alternative scenarios and realities by combining an ability to comprehend diverse yet specific contexts with the power of imagination and fantasy. Previous projects by Ole Scheeren which transcend the boundaries of architectural production include, among others, the Marfa Drive-In (a drive-in cinema in the desert of Texas), and the exhibition Cities on the Move, which Ole Scheeren co-curated and scenographed in Bangkok in 1999.

The final night of the first Film on the Rocks Yao Noi took place on Archipelago Cinema, designed by German-born and Beijing-based architect Ole Scheeren. Guests were taken by boat through the darkness of the sea to arrive on a glowing raft in the middle of the quiet waters of Nai Pi Lae lagoon on Kudu Island. Surrounded by a dramatic landscape of towering rocks emerging from the ocean, the audience experienced an atmospheric convergence of nature and cinematic narratives – primordial notions of light, sound and stories suspended in the darkness between sea and sky.
