Heath’s approach suggests a functional and decorative means to creating eco interiors that takes into consideration energy efficiency, cutting-edge eco and natural materials, reducing toxins and the benefits of incorporating vintage pieces. This balance of both practical and aesthetic issues is of value to all designers looking to create stylish and sustainable interiors.
