planter boxes for your balcony

I love these planters from Lechuza.  There are so many sizes and options with a few colour choices as well.  They look great and are perfect for all those lifeless condo balconies out there, not to mention the privacy they can give you.  Have a look at their easy to order on-line website here.

the unfitted kitchen

The unfitted kitchen is not a look for everyone, but I love it! There is always character in an unfitted kitchen as there are unique pieces that act on their own while still relating to the overall effect. This kitchen has just that with it's chunky wood table acting as the island and only lower cabinets on the sink and stove side. And yes, there is a sink in the island with the pipes hidden by the basket - so clever!... did you notice that gorgeous wide winged chair in the forefront in sumptuous grey leather? Awesome!

Green, as a colour, is gorgeous.  It goes with everything and is always fresh... especially when paired with white.  And 'living green' gets easier all the time with so many products so easily available now.  Consider LED lighting for under your kitchen cabinets; recycled glass counters (move to the side please Granite); and organically grown hemp, cottons and linens for pillows, bedding and curtains.
