I've recently discovered the world of water plants and they are pretty cool. DIY has a fairly easy "pond in a box" do-it-yourself project to create a compact water garden of your very own.

From favorite Blue Dot...a nice, simple station to organize all your charging electronics.
"One outlet, four electronic thingamajigs to plug in, let the Juice Box help balance that equation. Mitered walnut box with felted wool removable top tames the tangle of cords, while concealing a power strip of your choosing."
These are interesting. The Spiral Cellars design/build firm digs a great big hole in your floor and places a functional spiral-staircase wine cellar inside. Cool air is piped in and warm air is piped out, allowing the wine to maintain the ideal temperature. You can have hidden entrances or larger, more conspicuous ones to show off. Pretty wild.
AT has a nice post about decorating with nature...a great way to add some flair to your place for very little money. Rocks and doorstops, branches as coat racks, etc.
The artist creates each one by hand and no two are alike...
"Emogayu, who is originally from Japan, hand-crafted a series of vases and bowls for us called 'Volcanoes'; Inspired by the natural energy of flowing lava and the way it captures a moment in time forever. Her hopes are that whoever owns her work will not treat them as 'objects' but will allow the energy of their space to flow freely through them. Volcanoes have a number of uses whether for displaying fresh cut flowers, climbing plants, holding a votive candle or for containing your small keepsakes. Each piece is truly one of a kind."

Love this DIY pedestal sink using the Xavier Pauchard Marais stool and a simple white vessel basin. Would work great for a tight spot in a small bathroom.
