Interior designer Trudy Dujardin offers environmental guidance for pristine living with lecture at Fairfield University November 5


Award-winning interior designer Trudy Dujardin, ASID, LEED AP, the newest faculty addition to Fairfield University's Interior Design Program at University College, presents "Holistic House," a lecture on sustainable design and healthy living at Fairfield's Oak Room in the Barone Campus Center, Thursday, Nov. 5 at 7:00 p.m. Organic wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served. Admission is $15 and tickets are available by calling (203) 254-4110.

According to Dujardin, there is only one location we can really control: our own homes and Dujardin teaches how one can achieve a cleaner, "greener" standard of living and better health through creating a pristine environment.

In her lecture, Dujardin provides a detailed guide to living in beautiful, well-designed homes, using the principles of sustainable design and construction. Told through the story of two of her own homes, one built on the fragile Nantucket Island coastline, and another renovated in Connecticut on Long Island Sound, Dujardin provides inspiration for environmentally-frieDujardinndly living.
