Why our world needs wood (BPT) – More than 30 years ago, the United Nations General Assembly established World Habitat Day, an important step in acknowledging that everyone deserves a safe place to live.

Winter is a great time to make your home come to life with these Plantscaping Tips – by Designer Maxwell Alexander, Editor in Chief, Hudson Valley Style Magazine Plants are a powerful but underused tool in interior design. Their green, leafy bodies can add life to even the coldest rooms and they are versatile enough to be able to be included either as a major feature or as a last minute detail.
