Pretty Little Green Things is a weblog started by Petra Boykoff and dedicated to showing the beautiful side of green and the sustainable side of luxury.

I am an interior designer living in New York City and working on luxury hotel projects and residences all over the world.  As an interior designer, I’m part of a group of trained professionals charged with health, safety and welfare in the built environment.  While our buildings may be technically up to code, using unsustainable and toxic products is not only harmful to the environment, it’s also harmful to us.  I believe that my job as an interior designer does not end with a set of governmental regulations, but should go beyond by making our spaces healthy for ourselves, safe for the environment and good for the welfare of all.
