book lovin'

This year I am determined to take advantage of the amount of space I have for gardening. My landlord is an accomplished gardener and has encouraged me to ask her as many questions as possible. We have discussed what she grew on my deck when she lived here and what I can possibly grow on an east facing deck with an abundance of sunlight.

Grow Great Grub: Organic Food from Small SpacesOrganic Gardening For DummiesRodale's Ultimate Encyclopedia of Organic Gardening: The Indispensable Green Resource for Every Gardener

I would like to concentrate on organic herbs, meaning using an all natural method. Sometimes I wonder what all the fuss is about growing organic when it simply means returning back to basics. Nevertheless I found great resources in the form of books to guide me on my growing journey. Between my landlord and some basic reading  I am sure to yield a variety of herbs, vegetables and possibly some flowers this summer.

Love the planet today

I learnt a lot about why Leah Singh Waldman looked to her Indian side of her heritage for inspiration when designing home accessories. It was very much a spiritual journey as it was a design one. The lamp you see below is made from buffalo bone an ancient and traditional craft found in India. 

I wouldn't think to use buffalo bones for lamps nor would I expect it to look this beautiful. I don't know if this would appeal to everyone, but I love it all the same. I don't think it's a lamp you could ever grow tired of enjoying. To read the entire article in The Earth Day issue visit Think magazine.

Recycle this hotel room

Can a hotel room be reused or recycled? I never thought it possible but the architects at L-A-V-A took it upon themselves to create The Future Hotel a clever luxury hotel for the weary globetrotter to relax and rejuvenate at their own pace.

Imagine being in your own little cocoon, with mood lighting of your choice and a spa bathroom where you can enjoy total relaxation and privacy. The room comes with all the standard amenities like wi-fi etc, but in a room like this it's begging you to just do nothing. To read more about this hotel, visit the last resort issue, you'll love finding out more on technology and sustainable design.

Site is under construction

I know the site looks the same at the moment but it is under construction and should be ready to coincide with the next issue. We're working on cleaning it up, and looking at how it can be made more friendlier for 2011. The idea of constantly changing and growing the magazine has always been an attractive feature so bring on the change.

There is also a new writer joining team Think for the Resort issue Daniel will contribute to the wearable technology section since Erich is on hiatus for this issue but Daniel will be writing fashion. So here we go with year two. We hope to do the same job if not better in the second year of this growing publication.
