There’s nothing like the feeling of fresh cut grass under the toes, especially when stepping out of the shower. This Moss Carpet by Nguyen La Chanh brings the outside indoors in an unconventionally natural way by placing it underfoot. The lush green lawn thrives in humid environments, which makes your bathroom a perfect place to grow. We found the concept absolutely fascinating and delightful! We hope you do too.

Kent and London have captured our eye with their stylish,  solid oak chest of Alphabet Drawers that offer a variety of uses from storage in a child’s playroom or bedroom, to easy filing for a home office. Inspired by vintage printing blocks, we never imagined the alphabet could be so eco-friendly. See more at www.kentandlondon.co.uk.

Sitting outside this morning, I began to read the New York Times and sip on some enjoyable Stumptown coffee. It was one of those mindless mornings where I was making every effort to relax. I sensed something else going on in the yard that I just cannot explain. Nothing caught my eye, it was only me on the patio. My wife was at work and my kids were at school. The wind blew threw the trees, and I looked around for critters on the ground. Suddenly, I glanced towards the bird house I made when we moved to our Creole Cottage-Style home. Maxine, my daughter, loves to help me fill the birdhouse with food every time I bring it down to replace the bird seeds. Everyone should have one-a bird house-that is. If you don’t have one already, you need one. For such amusements as squirrels attempting at a free lunch…or better, what I saw today. Suddenly, there it was, a western bluebird!
