Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas

 

When you think of building a home, do you consider what materials you’re using or you leave it to the contractor? The more I learn about Eco houses and its building materials, the more I think we should educate ourselves before building a house or even when renovating our existent one.

For homeowners Chris and Anne Ladner, living in an Eco house was a must and that’s why they decided to renovate a 1968 house in their favorite neighborhood. Only Eco-friendly materials were used in this renovation.

When asked if designing an Eco house was too difficult, this is what Chris Ladner said:: ” You don’t have to go off the deep end to make significant changes. Sometimes it’s just changing the ductwork or purchasing a new thermostat. Select items that have high-recycled content. Choose native, drought-tolerant plants. Use hard surfaces that are easy to clean and don’t hold dust. Find things in your area. Try to limit your waste. There are a lot of things that define green. You can go through the LEED guidelines and determine what resonates with you.”

What I’m learning about Eco houses is not only the fact you can save money down the road and it’s good for the environment, but also, it can be a healthier place for our family to live, and that is what really should matter.

This proves that an Eco house doesn’t need to be boring; Eco houses can be very stylish. Take a look!

Family Room

The family room feels uncomplicated and I like that!

Throughout the house, Sherwin-Williams’ low-VOC paint in Alabaster covers the walls while Toque covers the trim.

Kitchen

I know we see white kitchens all the time, but I feel this one is even more special. Sources: Countertops: Vermont marble from Bedrock International, Ceramic tiles: ProSource, Light fixtures:Restoration Hardware with CFL bulbs.

Sink

Schumacher wallpaper surrounds the sink and was used as a template for the stencil by Angelfish Studios in the dining area.

Dining Area

The unique banquette is by Howard’s Upholstery Shop. John Magee of M2 Gallery made the banquette base and the iron table base; the tabletop is reclaimed barnwood that Chris stained. The light fixture is from IKEA, chairs are from Roost, pillows are from Cynthia East Fabrics and recycled glass vases are from VivaTerra, a retailer of green home décor.

Reading Nook

I’m in love with reading nooks lately. Sources: Window: Marvin, Carpet tiles: Flor, Wallpaper: Shumacher, Fabrics: Cynthia East, Pillows: West Elm.

Master Bedroom

This master feels elegant, but not overly designed. Sources: Headboard and ottoman fabrics: Cynthia East Fabrics, Construction: Howard’s Upholstery Shop; Draperies and wool rug: Pottery Barn, Vintage side tables: eBay.

Chairs

Neutral chairs/sofas are like canvas. Just add some fun colors with pillows and throws. Armchairs are by Lee Industries.

Bathroom

Classic with a twist. Sources: Countertop: quartz, Round mirror: TEC Electric.

Patio

The covered patio features an outdoor stove from Congo Fireplace & Patio, which allows the family to enjoy the space even in colder months. To shield the stovepipe, Formed Solutions added a 3form screen. A custom-made coffee table features a reclaimed window with iron inlay that the Ladners purchased on a trip to Taos, where they also found the architectural fragments displayed on the stove.

 

Many thanks to the designer for sharing the details above.

    that banquette is effin unbelievably lovely.

    we had to yield to a lot of our builder’s restrictions when building this house, so we are looking forward to a day when we build again and choose eco-honoring materials at every step. we want to be surrounded by natural materials and earth friendly lovely.

    this place is incredible, L.

    off to another lovely adventure/shenanigans this afternoon with out of town guests.
