It’s Easy Being Green–and Modern

Think of all the energy it would take to knock down this Hollin Hills home and to build a new one.

With the 40th anniversary of Earth Day this year, D.C. Modern Luxury Editor in Chief Karen Sommer Shallet recently put out a “green” issue (in which Modern Capital was featured) focusing on local sustainable and modern design trends. In an appearance on NewsChannel 8’s “Let’s Talk Live,” Karen discussed the local green scene, including how efforts to save and preserve mid-century modern homes fits into this mix. Think about all the energy wasted when a perfectly good house is torn down to build a new, much larger one. Thanks to Karen for helping spread the word on mid-century modernism here in the D.C. area.
