Photos just in from One Eco Home of a low carbon ‘Retrofit and Replicate’ interior which they were asked to design for Hyde homes. Spot Mogwaii pebble lamps and lumbar cushions in the scrumptious linden green.

and the pebble lamps which I never did see complete as they were sent straight from the drum maker to client.

I remember working with that glorious green (see cushions complete). How I would relish another opportunity…hint!

The eco re fit seems to have attracted not only political attention (the new concept in carbon efficient housing will be monitored by the government to assess whether it could be a model for future developments in housing), but also a media flurry for TV or radio to coincide with the governments launch of the low carbon homes strategy on the 16th December.

Well done Hellen and Kate…a job beautifully executed as always!

It just occurred to me: Is execute (kill) and execute (carry out) spelt in the same way? I’m feeling a little nervous now. OK..I’ll word it a different way.

Well done Kate and Hellen…another stunning interior!
