Careful planning and attention is essential to construct a true green home. And to the credit of many builders across the country, they're willfully accepting this responsibility to ensure their homes are built in an environmentally friendly manner. However, despite their best intentions, it's unfortunate that often times their well intended efforts are diminished by poor choices in interior design. With the assistance of EcoDecor Inc., these poor choices will not be replicated in the interior design of Green Builder® VISION House Orlando 2008.
The highly talented team of Bernadette V. Upton and Daniel R. Giordano, principles of EcoDecor, Inc., have joined VISION House Orlando to oversee the home's interior. Through Bernadette and Daniel's leadership, only earth friendly materials will be incorporated into the interior design. By using, for example, environmentally sensitive furnishings, fabrics, and wall coverings with natural dyes that are both beautiful and healthy to breath, EcoDecor is committed to sustaining the integrity of eco in decor for VISION House Orlando.
