Special thanks to Lori Dennis, blogger and interior designer for letting us know about the release of her book, GREEN INTERIOR DESIGN.

The book features over 100 color photos of projects and furnishings and aims to be a great resource for creating sophisticated eco-friendly interiors.    The user friendly manual geared toward homeowners, interior designers, architects, and contractors, includes design tips as well as extensive resources and vendors.  GREEN INTERIOR DESIGN .

GREEN INTERIOR DESIGN includes every aspect of residential interior design—furniture and accessories, window treatments, fabrics, surface materials, appliances, plumbing fixtures, plants, gardens, maintenance and more—discussed from a green perspective in terms of reducing waste, avoiding pollution, and protecting the occupant’s health.

Already digging the sneak preview on Amazon.  The section Antique, Vintage, and Used Sources caught my eye.  Reusing and repurposing vintage furniture and even salvage architectural materials is a great way to recycle and reduce waste...not to mention save money.  I am sucker for a mid-century modern or industrial finds but often people don't consider that new is not always better.  Check out sites like Ebay, 1stDibs, and Craigslist to find vintage pieces.
