This Month in Green Design: Modern Mason Jars, A Real Functioning Moat, & The Verticality of Vegetables
Over at EcoSalon this past month – where Shelter is where the heart is and the green is always greener – we obsessed over Pantone in theory (the app) vs. practice (the hotel); celebrated Valentine’s Day like practical gals and fixed up a broken heart; font-renewed and blissed out; voyeured our way into the homes of some of our favorite design bloggers and curators and prodded the real life ethics of one of America’s most up-and-coming box...

I don't know about you, but that giant wall of color swatches at the home improvement store scares me to death. Whenever Alicia and I are painting a new room, we walk up to the paint department and I just stand there, mute, hoping she won't make me be the one to choose a color.
Well, Glidden paint has a new online tool that may eventually make the color-swatch-wall-paralysis problem moot. It's called My Colortopia – a place where color-noobs and color-lovers alike can get advice on interior design and painting decisions.
Remember the plastic spoon rose? Turns out that is just the tip of the iceberg as far as spoon-crafting is concerned. Take for example these (dare I say?) gorgeous spoon pendent lights.
Holes in spoons negate their intent, but they also take artist's Daisuke Hirawa creation (pictured above) into
In solidarity with SOPA and PIPA protesters today, I thought I'd round up some classic images of protest. These black and white photographs couldn't have much better composition if they had been planned. As it was, they weren't. That spontaneity adds to their story. (All prints are available in a variety of sizes and prices, as well as on stretched canvas, at All Posters.)
The image pictured above of a man being arrested is from the LIFE archives. It was captured at the
Remember my log side table? I still love it unconditionally, but this square stump stool is giving it a run for my love's money. By Kalon Studios, the stumps are cut from green "100% Raw FSC Certified domestic Ash or Maple." As the wood dries, the stools
