Design Miami/ took Miami by storm and the list of design visionaires who enlightened their fans this year is longer than ever. I've interviewed a handful of them on my ezine Design Commotion. Ross Lovegrove, the Campana Brothers, Nadja Swarovski, Piero Lissoni are among the talented individuals I interviewed. They have helped to change the face of design and how we view interiors and furnishings.
Long before Oprah there existed a list of favourite things. Those things which make your life a little brighter. This is MY list...(actually it is an excerpt of a recent post on my blog Goannatree)
College student can be a tricky group to shop for, so I asked
college students and recent college grads for gift ideas. Overall,

Trends come and go - we know this. So when it comes to gift giving this
season, think hard about the style pieces you purchase for others.
firmly believe that gift cards are the best route to go when it comes
to holiday gift giving if the person is a) a new friend who you are
still getting to know, b) a good friend but who you really have no time
to shop for, c) a loved one who has specifically told you that a gift
card is what he or she prefers, d) a coworker or colleague whose name
you got from a gift exchange.
We rounded the corner of Target in search of a green floodlight, my husband's answer to easy outdoor holiday lighting. Instead, we were head on facing the aisle endcap display of a box set of not one, not two, but EIGHT Disney Princess Barbies. All shiny, scantilly-clad PVC- and pthalate-laden plastic glory via China. A real bargain at $69.99, I tell you. I cringed.
