INSIDE: silver and gold
Posted by Cerentha Harris on 11/25/2007

HARRY: There seems to be a bit of silver and gold coming together in jewelry right now. I found some lovely necklaces…perfect Christmas presents. Plus a rather wonderful pair of black rose earrings (am I influenced by Kate Moss’ new perfume campaign? No idea what the stuff smells like but I do like that black rose). Click on the images to find out where the pieces are from…

INSIDE: light up
Posted by Cerentha Harris on 11/24/2007

HARRY: I’ve just finished reading a draft of a lighting story we’re going to run in Vogue Living’s Before and After issue. I went online to try and find some interesting bulbs for a sidebar…The more I look into lighting the more I am disappointed with what is out there. Those compact fluorescents (CF) might be good for the planet but they are ugly and you can’t use a dimmer switches with them (how irritating). They seem to begging for a redesign…and then came the clever guys from Hulger with the Plumen Project. They’ve taken the boring CF and turned it into a work of art. Congrats. And now we just need to mainstream it!

INSIDE: eco bags
Posted by Cerentha Harris on 11/22/2007

HARRY: My friend Liane sent me a link to ecorazzi. It’s a fantastic blog…kind of like Who Weekly for people interested in all things green. I love it. They posted these cool bags from Gooc made from recycled canvas tarps. Clever. Stylish. Good Christmas gift…

INSIDE: sitting pretty
Posted by Cerentha Harris on 11/21/2007

HARRY: I’m so flat out right now with writing jobs that I keep avoiding posting. So must break the drought. Sorry it’s with something so unsexy. But a good chair is hard to find and I love these Herman Miller ones They were designed by Don Chadwick and Bill Stumpf in 1994. I know my friend David, who is a writer and spends a lot of time in his chair, sent his Aeron back. There was some problems with the arms. I still want one. I was in the Vogue Living offices yesterday and the editor has one. I had a test ride. They are so comfortable…and for you northerners, they are on sale at Room and Board. Nice one.

INSIDE: binth
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 11/19/2007

SAL: I’m not quite sure to start with Binth, but I think Harry may quite possibly lose her mind when she checks them out. Binth stands for “beautiful, intriguing, new, timeless and haunting” and I can’t think of a better description for their work. From simple games for children, to gorgeous notepads and pillows, as well as limited edition prints; their designs are just really lovely. And of course, all the inks they use are water-based, mixed by hand and their paper stock is recycled.
