In honor of the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day, I present …  a tomato powered lamp!

OK, this seems a little bit out there … and is one of the reasons, lately, when I hear “green,” I see red!

God is in the Eco Details

I have been accused of putting the mental in environmental. I truly believe the most successful spaces always get the details right: proper use of varied lighting, complexity of texture, subtle art, and the many other nuances that transform a space to make it exceptional. Taking it one step further (hence the mental reference), I also delve into the ordinary elements that make up one’s home. It’s all great and good if it’s an ‘environmentally friendly room’, assembled with eco paint, FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) furniture, pure vegetable dyed rugs, etc, but try to dig a little deeper to appreciate the impact of the ordinary items we use everyday but don’t usually think about. Stuff such as healthy cleaning supplies, non-petroleum based candles and cosmetics, recycled paper goods. Even nail polish!
