A Green Apartment Remodel: Accidental Environmentalists

A New York City apartment gets a spectacular ecological makeover—and converting to earth-friendly materials happens organically.



The apartment's original kitchen was gutted, and two walls were removed to bring in natural light and marry it with the living space. The wheatboard cabinets were handcrafted by Amish cabinetmakers from Pennsylvania. The Stave Stools by Witt Design are available from http://www.Vivavi.com.

Artist Lan Nguyen helped Amy and Oscar dress up the bedroom with an eggplant-colored radiator cover. Amy chose the silk curtains and brilliant-orange Benjamin Moore Eco-Spec paint because the bright colors 'just make me happy.'

The Schachters' Fire & Light recycled-glass dishes are a perfect complement for the recycled-glass tile backsplash.
