“Earth Friendly” doesn’t have to be “Earthy.” Mindful modern design lives as lightly as any concerned steward of our planet plus a whole lot shinier. Clean design rooted in the form and function ideals of Breuer and Neutra avoids the gravity of excess. A home can be both incredibly cool and quietly step back creating a stage for carefree living. We like to say, “Less House ~ More Life!”C:DropboxProjects-TempShelburne WoodsMarketing3DStreet.pdf
