Subtitled Sheds And Shelters, Huts and Hidewaways, this is one of the nicest coffee table books (130 colour illustrations in 110 pages) about shedlike atmospheres which includes some intelligent (if sometimes verging on the purplish side of prose) commentary inside, as befits the Paris editor of World of Interiors. The book is broken down into themed chapters (On the farm, No place like home, Deep in the woods, By the water, Garden refuge, Nature calls) including Cabins that work including a photo of Virginia Woolf's wooden hut at Rodmell, Sussex, which I've not seen anywhere else. One to savour with a glass of red wine and your feet up on a Friday night. Copies available via Abebooks from around £6.

Yesterday, for the second time in a couple of months, someone chuckled at my suggestion to use bamboo as a countertop or flooring material. It dawned on me that the image coming to their mind is something out of Gilligan’s Island - something that conjures up tiki themed parties and knick-knacks (of which I’m [...]

From The Economist Fifteen miles east of Philadelphia, Willingboro's Grand Marketplace is a chaotic place. Merchants hawk Christian T-shirts, Amish quilts, Chinese food, massages and Afrocentric literature. Salsa music blasts from a CD stall. Most of the shoppers are black; the shopkeepers are a variegated mix of blacks, Latinos, Asians, Arabs and whites, including Pennsylvania Dutch farmers in traditional garb. Welcome to bland, homogenous suburbia...
