Sarah Cunningham

Ethos Design+Remodel is a green and environmentally friendly company that is dedicated to creating eco-friendly living spaces inside and out of the home.  Ethos Design+Remodel is not only committed to beautifying and reviving a client’s home, but the neighborhoods and communities that we share.

At Ethos Design+Remodel, Sarah Cunningham approaches each project like a fresh canvas.  With her clients as her inspiration, she creates the environment that is an expression of who they are as individuals.  Her goal is to create functional works of art that clients will enjoy for many years to come.

Sarah Cunningham started Desiderata Interiors — now Ethos Design+Remodel – in April 2010 after 5 years as a Design Consultant with Neef’s Carpet One in Boise, Idaho. As a Design Consultant and Project Manager, she worked directly with homeowners, remodeling contractors, and other design and installation companies. She gained valuable hands-on industry experience, and became recognized as the Neef companies’ green product expert. She has carried that expertise to her own business and with all of her valued clients.

Ethos Design+Remodel examines the ethics behind the aesthetics while planning new projects.  Sarah Cunningham takes green claims seriously, asking pointed questions to uncover ‘green-washed’ products and researching products independently beyond manufacturer claims. Some products appear environmentally sound on the surface, but do not meet sustainable standards.  Therefore, Sarah sees it as her responsibility to verify the degree of sustainability of products marketed as green.

Ethos Design+Remodel is about much more than home improvement; it is about improving living spaces and the surrounding community.  As a mother, it is important to Sarah that she leave the world better than it was when she arrived. Her son inspires her to better her surroundings for the sake of his future.  Her work is not only about creating high quality designs but a higher quality of life.

One aspect of Sarah Cunningham’s dedication to the community is in her contributions to Boise’s Central Bench Neighborhood Association.  She has assisted in reestablishing the association as well as in the planning and realization of the Central Bench Spring Festival.  Sarah Cunningham has put a large amount of time and effort into the conceptualization of the “Boise Quilt District,” which will be in Boise’s Bench area. It is a development project to which she is passionate and dedicated.
