PETA Award-Winning Designer Chloe Bullock Publishes Sustainable Interior Design Book

Chloe Bullock, a UK interior designer who received last year’s PETA Compassionate Designer award, has written a new book titled Sustainable Interior Design.

Printed by RIBA Publishing (the publishing arm of the Royal Institute of British Architects), the book outlines sustainable practices that can reduce the impact of interior design on the planet, animals, and people. It features eleven approaches that can be used as project goals, demonstrated through a range of innovative spaces, products, materials, and supply chains.

Examples from around the world are combined with best-practice guidance and information about the benefits of sustainable and regenerative design. Projects include:

  • A circular economy building that can be dismantled and relocated many times
  • Non-toxic alternatives to animal-derived products and materials
  • Regenerative designs to revive culture and nature
  • Technology to ensure supply chains are truly Fair Trade
  • Finishes made from demolition waste.

“Beautiful book of inspiration”

Chloe Bullock was the first UK interior designer to be certified by vegandesign.org. She founded her own company, Materialise Interiors, in 2005 to provide clients with advice on sustainable and regenerative design solutions. The company became a certified B Corp last year, with an impressive score of 98 (the minimum score to qualify is 80).

Previously, Bullock worked for cosmetics company The Body Shop for a decade, as part of a team delivering ethical store concepts and specifications globally. She has drawn on this experience, along with her many years in interior design, to write the new book.

Sustainable Interior Design is described as “a beautiful book of inspiration” rather than a manual, allowing readers to see sustainability demonstrated.

“Surviving as a small business since 2005 has been a challenge,” said Bullock. “At times that has taken my focus away from influencing and helping my industry. But I’m so happy to tell you this book is coming after two years in the making. It will help all in my industry — wherever they may be on the journey to sustainability which we all need to face.”
