We kicked off our first Design Salon of the fall season at g Green Design Center’s outpost in Norwell, where the wine (and fresh-made seltzer) flowed, homeowners and trade members mingled, and everyone walked away a little more knowledgeable about “greening” one’s home. Some of us didn’t even know “green” was a verb!
Nicole Goldman of g Green Design Center, Sally Grant of ECO Structures, Micheal Coutu of Sudbury Design Group, and Budd Kelley of South Shore Millwork offered eco-advice relevant to their respective areas of expertise, all of which combined to make a comprehensive introduction to the many simple changes we can make in our homes — from big to small — to get a little greener.
As Kermit says, it’s not easy being green. However, with Design New England’s marketing partners by your side, it will seem like a cinch. For more on the speakers, check our out Sept/Oct issue. And be sure to join us for our next salon — Kitchen Confidence: Ingredients for a cook’s kitchen — Thursday, October 6 at The Viking Center in Westwood.
