Renovate and Live Like a Kennedy


Robin Wilson

, a designer known for her green homes expertise, will add this spring's release of her latest book "Kennedy Green House: Designing an Eco-Healthy Home from the Foundation to the Furniture" to her impressive resume. The book documents the eco-friendly renovation and redecoration she helped to carry out on the Westchester home of Robert Kennedy, Jr., who has specialized in environmental issues throughout his career as a lawyer. (Kennedy has also written and spoken frequently on environmental issues, and helped the organization Riverkeeper to clean up the Hudson River.) The LEED-certified renovation of his home focused on energy efficiency throughout the structure, and indoor air quality in particular.

We caught up with Ms. Wilson to see what else we could learn about the project--and whether she had any pointers to help the hoi polloi live, and decorate, like the Kennedys.
