In this episode of Houzz TV Live, interior designer Jennifer Jones of Niche Interiors gives a virtual tour of the living and dining rooms in her 1930s San Francisco home. In the living room, upholstered pieces in a nontoxic, stain-resistant coating bring style while remaining durable enough for a family with a dog, a cat, and a 7-year-old child. In the dining room, hand-painted wallpaper in gray and ivory sets a moody backdrop for a locally crafted custom wood dining table.
Niche Interiors is an award-winning interior design firm with a passion for creating sophisticated and sustainable homes. Principal Designer and Owner Jennifer Jones launched Niche Interiors in 2007, where her process-driven approach to design has earned her the trust of more than 60 residential clients and counting. A California native, Jennifer has grown up with environmentalism as a core value and has applied this to the Niche Interiors ethos. As a Certified Green Building Professional and a LEED AP, Jennifer is leading the way in creating healthy, non-toxic homes, with a focus on improving indoor air quality. Jennifer recently became a Founding Member of the Good Future Design Alliance — an alliance of design and build professionals on a mission to reduce our waste by 50% in the next five years.
“Our goal is to design homes with materials that are healthy for both homeowners and the environment. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that most Americans spend approximately 90% of their time indoors, where the concentrations of pollutants are often two to five times higher than typical outdoor concentrations. Since so much of our time is spent indoors, it’s crucial that we pay close attention to the products that we bring into our client’s homes.” Says Jennifer Jones.
And she adds, “We love working with Cisco Home for their healthy, non-toxic upholstery made with natural materials. As one of the first manufacturers to offer flame retardant-free sofas and FSC-certified frames, we’ve been proud to support their business for many years.”
