Some “Green” Design ideas & materials used in the Award Winning Home in the Summit County Parade of Homes 2009 ( 1.8 to 2.5 million dollar category) in which D&M Designs won 2 awards :

* Award of Excellence – Interior Design & Finishes

* Award of Excellence – Kitchen Design

Builders ; Paragon Builders & Developers, Breckenridge, Colorado

When Paragon enlisted our design services for their Parade Home project they stressed their dedication to using “green” design & materials as much as possible . Here are a few ways we accomplished that ;

* Re-using discarded ski lift cable in the hand rails & pickets .

* Using beetle killed pine for the exterior siding, interior wood ceiling tongue & groove and paneling on the kitchen bar wall & the Powder room wainscot paneling .

* Creatively putting to use many of the granite counter top scraps for benches & niches in the showers and an irregular shaped, chiseled edge counter top in the Powder Room.

You can see pictures of this home & these “green” ideas on our website ;

Approaching any interior project with a little attention to ” how can we be more green? ” does take a bit more effort & possibly expense, but we believe it is a worthwhile investment for our families, communities & our planet !

We invite you to “follow us” so we can bring a little “design sunshine” into your day, everyday !
