Look up!

With the Sky Planter, Boskke really transforms the way people enjoy plants in their living environments. This company from New Zealand was no longer satisfied with having plants relegated to the remote corners of a room, so they elevated them into stunning interior features. Living spaces should be as beautiful and tranquil as a forest glade, no? Boskke’s designer Patrick Morris found a way of bringing more greenery into homes without cluttering the floor-space. Look up. Children will love this other way of contemplating life!

TV must see show

If you have a chance to be in the US this week, don’t miss 9 By Design on Bravo TV (Tuesday May 11 at 10pm).  This new show about Design just started a couple of weeks ago and I have to say that it’s really worth watching it for both the new way of approaching the subject, and for the peep into the incredible Novogratz family. Robert and Cortney Novogratz are one of a kind couple, funny, full of energy, and also parents of 7 children, the youngest being just a over 1 year. The family lives in the heart of Manhattan, and the parents successfully run their own design company. The coming episode will feature the re-design of a client’s office and promises to be once again very unique and much fun.
