Denise Robinette, owner of Healthy Living Interiors, designed this room and is helping me with the green renovation of my little cottage! Kudos, Denise!

“Merkiyah Jones can now breathe easier thanks to a Healthy-N-Green Bedroom Makeover.Jones, a fourth-grader at Watkins Elementary School in West Park, was treated to the makeover after she won the Asthma Awareness Day Poster Contest.

Denise Robinette, president of HealthyLiving Interiors, volunteered to do the project after she was approached by Adella Earle, the Broward school district’s coordinator for asthma improvement management.

“Everyone can benefit from good indoor air quality,” said Robinette, who enlisted the help of several donors and sponsors for the project.

Environmentally friendly products were donated, including a chemical-free mattress and dust mite covers for the bed, a year’s supply of hypoallergenic air filters, eco-friendly window treatments and a recycled desk worktop. The family also pitched in to help.

“They were a part of transforming their bedroom,” Robinette said. “The kids painted the furniture, and I tried to make it as fun as possible.”
