Comments Off on GREEN BUILDING 101: How to Choose the Best Spot for Your Dream Green Home

  We’ve already touched upon ways to keep cool (and warm!) via insulation and home orientation , but what about your home’s location itself? Where would you like to live? Naturally, aspects such as water conservation, sustainable building materials and how to save energy are great, but let’s take a step back and consider steps needed for making an environmentally conscious choice on where to live. We’ll share a few tips below on “Location and Linkages”; a term defined by LEED as a method of sustainable site selection and development.

Comments Off on Phil Gautreau’s Spectacular Salvaged Wood Bowls Win the 2014 BKLYN Designs Reader’s Choice Award!

Brooklyn’s design scene is thoroughly clad with locally sourced and salvaged wood – but no one does it better than Phil Gautreau . That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that Phil is the winner of our 2014 BKLYN Design Reader’s Choice Award ! His beautiful hand-turned bowls and cutting boards are made of chunks of wood salvaged from storm-felled trunks and trees thinned from the Brooklyn Botanic Garden , among other sources. Phil crafts each bowl by carefully carving away at layers of wood, revealing the unique character of each piece as he goes – check out a small sample of his work in the gallery below (and don’t miss his in-progress photos here ). We’d like to wish a big congrats to Phil and all of our BKLYN Designs Award finalists – check them out here ! + Phil Gautreau + BKLYN Designs + Inhabitat BKLYN Designs Award Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: “sustainable furniture” , green design , green interiors , green kitchen , green products , hand turned wood bowls , locally sourced wood , Phil Gautreau , reclaimed wood , reclaimed wood bowls , recycled wood , repurposed wood , reused wood , salvaged wood , salvaged wood bowls , sustainable design , wood castoffs , wooden bowls
