Recipe for a Green & Gorgeous Kitchen - Inside & Out
Wednesday, June 19 5:30 - 7:00 pm
Cooking up ideas for a kitchen remodel that is beautiful, eco-friendly, and healthy may be a daunting task. There are so many choices, and it can be difficult to sort through the maze of greenwashing about materials and finishes. As with any good recipe, kitchen design planning starts with understanding the ingredients, and then carefully blending just the right amount of each.
To help you get a better understanding of the ingredients available, EcoLogic LifeStyle Design and EcoLogic Life – green design resource center in Ojai will host a presentation on Wednesday, June 19th,from 5:30 – 7:00 pm, as part of the Conscious Building Design workshop series. The presentation “Recipe for a Green and Gorgeous Kitchen – Inside and Out”, will explore some of the best eco / healthy options for materials and finishes, as well as inspire you with examples of finished projects and the latest trends for 2013.
Designer Cynthia Louise Grier will present information on materials such as cabinetry, countertops, plumbing fixtures, tiles, hardware, finishes, and paints, along with some ideas on dinnerware, furniture, upholstery textiles, and table linens. An in depth comparison of countertop options will reveal factors such as durability, maintenance, degree of “green”, and price. Cynthia Louise will also have samples of materials, design boards, and digital renderings of her eco / healthy kitchen and bath interior designs on display.
Special guest, Diane Squire of DJ Squire Designs in Ojai, will also show some of her outdoor kitchen designs in both 3d and 2d imaging software. Diane will discuss how she can assist with imaging & design ideas for your outdoor spaces.
This presentation will be held at the Ojai Design Center, located at 111 W. Topa Topa Street, Ojai, CA 93023. Space is limited to 11 participants with preference to those who pre-register.

Introduction to Bau-Biologie® (Building Biology)
& Conscious Building Design
Bau-Biologie® (Building Biology), was brought from Germany to North America by the renowned architect Helmut Ziehe, to help create healthy homes, schools, and workplaces, free of toxins in the indoor air and tapwater, and electromagnetic pollutants. The principles of Bau-Biologie® help to create built environments that support and encourage human health and wellness. It is an understanding of the vital, complex relationship between the natural and built environments, and the means for merging these complementary environments into greater harmony.
With nature as the Gold Standard, buildings can be inspired by sacred geometry and natural archetypes, co-creating with nature rather than conquering it - designing from the outside in.
This workshop will include handouts of the 25 Principles of Bau-Biologie®, and a link to the online Healthy Home Quiz to help to identify issues in your home or workplace.
