Inhabitat: Who are some of your favorite green designers, organic textile makers or architects right now?

Grace: I love Studio Bon and Mod Green Pod – they’re both textile designers who work with green fabrics. And Jessica Helgerson is an amazing interior designer in Portland, OR that knows how to keep things green without sacrificing style.

Inhabitat: How about your favorite vintage, antique or salvage shops in Brooklyn or the New York City area?

Grace: I love “Build it Green” in Brooklyn for salvaged materials and Moon River Chattel’s Annex for great salvaged furniture and metalworking.

Thanks Grace! And good luck with the book tour for Design*Sponge at Home!

    Salvaged wood makes for endless wall finishes- I’m taking a truck load of 2×6 end cuts to finish our bathroom. Going to stack them like bricks, and hopefully they will help soak up the extra moisture in the room.
