Over the years, I’ve had many clients, or potential clients, who purchased a new house without planning for the cost of decorating it. This isn’t just about pretty fabrics either; there are many practical considerations such as the need for privacy; heating and cooling and air flow.
To make it through the day, you’ll need all the energy you can get (hence your triple-shot latte addiction). But when it comes to your home, it’s all about cutting back. Like most green-minded folk, you probably know and exercise some of the basics–keeping the thermostat just a little lower, using those swirly energy-saving lightbulbs and unplugging appliances when you go out of town.
