Eco living: the new face of sustainable design

Vanessa Balinska is a final-year student who, along with thousands of others, is currently putting the finishing touches to her end-of-course project. Over the coming weeks, arts and design schools across the country will showcase the work of our future talent. These energetic twentysomethings will be the arbiters of British taste for the next few decades, setting the tone for future trends in aesthetics and culture, from the colour of our living rooms to the shape of our lampshades.

As part of her final project, Balinska, who is studying for a Bachelor s Degree in interior design at KLC School of Design in London, is specifying materials and accessories for the bar area of a Mayfair restaurant. Although the look is undeniably sleek, she is using reclaimed and low-energy materials. The wooden slats for the ceiling are from reclaimed oak and the sculpted lights are from old copper piping. The bar worktops are recycled glass and the flooring is eco-concrete made from magnesium oxide cement, which uses half the energy of conventional cement in its manufacture.

Most of my designs and work during this final year have been led by sustainability, says Balinska, who wants to work in domestic interior design after graduating. I ve tried to incorporate materials that are either reclaimed, recycled or that have a low carbon footprint during manufacture and transportation. Using LED lights and energy-efficient appliances are simple ways of considering the environment as well as being more economical for the client.

We may scoff at the super-rich celebrities of New York and Los Angeles splashing out on so-called environmental features such as an apartment block wellness concierge and vitamin C-infused showers, but real change starts from the bottom and works up, not the other way round. Vanessa believes that today s new generation of designers, starting out on a shoestring, have a responsibility to reduce the strain on natural resources of their projects. But clients are increasingly asking for low-impact materials to decorate their homes, too.

Piers Prideaux, a lecturer at KLC (klc.co.uk), says: Students are training at an amazing time of change within the industry where we are moving rapidly away from a culture where disposable is considered acceptable. He says students are taught to look at materials with an imaginative eye to see what can be reused. While until recently, the words eco-friendly interiors conjured up images of shabby chic, advances in finishing techniques mean reclaimed and upcycled pieces don t have to look bashed up at all. You can have an environmentally sensitive interior which doesn t look either shabby chic or all kaftans and incense. You can be very grand and still have natural, renewable materials that haven t come from dubious sources, explains Piers.

This can range from practical items such as lampshades, to more decorative objects including the artworks we put on our walls. Young designer Emilie Osborne, who graduated from Arts University Bournemouth last June, creates beautiful 3D wall coverings made from recycled card. Her philosophy arose out of hardships experienced as a student: I can t bear throwing stuff away, she says. As a student you are always on a budget and I think it filtered through to the way I found the materials I used in my designs.

For Chris Thorpe, who graduated last summer from Falmouth University, inspiration came from the natural resources that surrounded him in Cornwall. Chris makes stunning homewares out of granite offcuts and oak and sycamore refuse from tree surgeons, to create pendant lampshades that are an artwork in themselves.

Chris studied under Drummond Masterton, course leader at Falmouth (falmouth.ac.uk/sustainableproduct

design). Drummond says students arrive with a passion, whether it is to reduce waste, to conserve biodiversity or help the developing world, which then has to be turned into hard-headed practice. One of his students is currently working on a Hundred Year Radio that will last through the next century thanks to a dropout mechanism that will allow the electronics to be replaced whenever technology makes them redundant, while retaining the beautifully engineered exterior and high-quality speakers.

The demand for a greater focus on the provenance of materials and how much energy houses and appliances are going to use has become more important for clients over the past few years, says interior designer Georgina Gibson. She has been in business for nearly a decade (georginagibsoninteriordesign.co.uk). Requesting that a home makeover be eco-friendly used to be quite niche, but now it s more prevalent, she says. I like to source a lot of second-hand furniture for clients and then refresh it with reupholstering or paint. It often works out a lot cheaper, too.

Sustainable Design

Green design is design that goes beyond being just efficient, attractive, on time and on budget. It is a design that cares about how such goals are achieved, about its effect on people and on the environment. An environmentally responsible professional makes a commitment to constantly try to find ways to diminish design’s impact on the world around us. It is also a smart way of doing business: sustainable design is the fastest growing segment of our industry. For more about ASID’s adoption of sustainable design as a platform issue of the Society, please click here. To find a designer with sustainable design expertise, please click here and enter words like “green”, “sustainable” or “LEED” in the Keyword Search field.

Sustainable Suite Design Competition

ASID, in conjunction with USGBC and NEWH, co-sponsored the Sustainable Suite design competition to help drive sustainable design practices in the hospitality industry.

The competition demonstrated that a high performance, energy-efficient suite can also be aesthetically pleasing and enhance guest experience.

The winning design came from the team of destination design firm WATG and IDEO, a design and innovation consulting company. It was built as a model guest room to be presented as an educational display for the design industry, hotel owners, and corporate travel executives. The Sustainable Suite was unveiled at the HDExpo in Las Vegas, NV in May 2010.

Studio apartment interior design ideas are usually set in limited place. Even though it is just small, it has living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. Unfortunately for student or worker because most studio apartment style not equipped with area to use as study room or personal office. But you can make it, we will show you the how to do that. Some people may consider that living in studio apartment is not comfortable but it s not entirely true if the apartment has brilliant design, those may change that perception. There is a studio apartment design which lies in 45 square feet and make everyone like living in box. Can it be a comfortable apartment? You need to think what the best answer is. By being creative in finding studio apartment interior design ideas, the problem will be solved.

As stated above that there are two main problems that should be overcome. First problem is about the small area where the studio apartment interior design ideas will be applied. The second problem is the shape of the place. It is like a rectangular box. Okay, let s discuss about design that you need to remodeling the box into heaven apartment.

Create more room with divider

This is a solution for students or workers who want a special room to concentrate in studio apartment. Divide the room is the best choice. A lot of media that can be used as a useful divider, one of them is a standing rack like design on top. Standing rack is used as a divider between the bedroom and work space while keep maintaining the standing rack function as a book storage. Not only for bedroom but also living room and kitchen can also be divided to make other rooms.

More hanging and standing furniture

When you decorate small studio apartment, the wall is your friend you should use as possible. You can install TV, fan, sound unit on the wall in front of the sofa. Or you can make All in One Rack by Ezequil Vales. He provide brilliant idea about a super multifunctional rack for small studio apartment as seen in the picture. You have small office, piano table, filing cabinet, book case in useful single rack.

Sleeping Place Based

For sleeping place, you can make a comfortable bed lied on top of seven stairs that are able to be your drawers. Putting a mattress or a cozy bed on the top of those stairs is what you have to do to save a lot of space. This design made JPDA Architects to the answer needs of a bed in a studio apartment.
Now you need to buy furniture with higher legs, especially the table. The under table can be used to store lightweight items such as magazines, photo gallery or book. Besides the room will look more alive. Use a combination of two different colors for the furniture and walls. Bright colors on the walls such as white will make the room look wider. Then mix with a darker color to give an elegant impression on furniture or accents.

Mirror to spread the light

Most studio apartments interior only have one big window at the front and sometimes behind the bulkhead less get maximum exposure. Therefore, the mirror is ideal for spreading the light to each side of the room. Or you can install small hanging lamps on important places that hard to reach the light from outside.

Create an interesting focal point

Create a focal point in the room is good ideas to make the box more interesting to live. Focal point should not be in the middle. You can build it in most convenient area in the apartment or according taste. Areas around windows are one of the best side to make a focus spot. The balcony also great options to make the spot with small couch and single table. You can sit back on the couch while enjoying the scenery outside the apartment.

How to write an interior design letter of agreement

02 February 2015

Unfortunately, there are many necessary evils in this world, and it seems like there are even more when you are trying to run your own interior design business! One of the biggest necessary evils – covering your butt. And you cover your (cute) butt with a letter of agreeement (LOA) or contract.
A contract should describe your services, payment terms and will serve to resolve any disputes or liability issues. Here are a few tips for writing your own contract:

1) Keep it simple

If you’re a smaller design firm, there is no need to use any “hereto, forthwith’s” in your design contract. Keep it short and simple, with easy to understand language and make it as clear as possible using numbering and headings.

2) Scope of work

Define what services and/or products you will be providing, with estimated due dates. Be clear and detailed to avoid any disputes. Include the rooms/spaces you are being paid to work on. Defining the scope in detail also allows you to provide added value services when the inevidable project scope creep occurrs.

3) Price and Payment terms

Include the amount and when payment is due. Consider adding interest or penalties for late payments. Also consider splitting the payments into sections on large projects so you don’t get stuck for months without a paycheck (eg. 50% due upon completion of )

4) Agree on a way to resolve disputes

If you are clear in the body of your contract, you shouldn’t have any trouble with disputes. But, to cover your butt just a little more, try to think ahead to any possible disputes and solutions for them.

5) Signatures

Don’t forget to review your contract with your client and have them sign because a contract is worthless without a signature! Prepare your contract and then upload it to your eDesign Studio and have your clients digitally sign off. or if you prepare to have a hard copy signature, you can have your client sign the contract and upload a signed PDF copy. Either way by uploading contracts you and your clients can easily reference your terms!

When writing this post I couldn’t find any “pretty” examples of interior design contract documents, so I referenced a few examples and made you one. Keep in mind it’s only a template, please use at your own risk!

This is only one example of a contract and depending on your business you may need addtional sections such as warranty, intellectual property and communication. Rather than beating this thing to death, I suggest you use our contract as a template and continue learning about the exciting process of writing contracts by visiting The Interior Designers of Canada and American Society of Interior Designers because both have excellent resources.

P.S. Did you know Mydoma Studio allows you to send contracts and have clients send feedback, and even approve them to make them legally binding. If you’re not already using Mydoma Studio, sign up for a free trial.
