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: more crockery

HARRY: It’s either high end architecture or down home ceramics right now! I found these great cups on etsy. New Zealand based designer Trixiedelicious (love the name) creates one off bits of china with cheeky words or images scrawled across them. She’s got a great sense of humour. She also takes custom orders, so if you’ve got something you’d like to say on a plate here’s the girl to sort that out for you.

OUTSIDE: light up

HARRY: This portable light would actually be just as good inside as out. Designed by Stefane Barbeau and Duane Smith it’s made of water-resistant plastic and has rechargeable batteries. I love the colour. I can just see that warm yellow glowing on a lawn at twilight.

INSIDE: light my fire
Posted by Cerentha Harris on 5/24/2007

HARRY These luscious black tipped matches from the Curiosity Shoppe are only $5. And there are lots of other designs to choose from. You can also design your own through For Your Party - I know it’s an ugly site but the matches are cute. We’re always scrabbling through drawers looking for that fire stick thing …you know the one. It has two buttons on it to baffle the kids. It usually takes me 3 or 4 goes to get the flame up and it’s like a mini-blow torch once it gets going. I’d much rather scratch and hiss of matches…plus I love that smell after you blow the match out.
