The Year Ahead

Four local designers share their plans for the new year.

My design resolution for 2016 is to see where I can incorporate more earth-friendly choices without sacrificing style. This can be to incorporate more American-made products or lower-carbon footprints; make beter eco choices for fabric finishes; use materials such as cork leather, which is a wonderful vegan option; shop vintage and antique. I am all about creating the perfect atmosphere for my clients, and this direction will lend itself well to that cause.
