Kelly LaPlante is a leading Los Angeles-based green interior designer, author, and television host. A profile in Sunset Magazine revealed photos of her personal home, a beautiful example of how "hand-me-downs and thrift-store finds can rise to stylish new purpose." As Kelly says, green design isn't just about choosing fabrics and furniture made from sustainable materials; it's also about finding new use and new love for things you already own. "There's nothing more green than keeping what you have," she says.
