53. For the Condo Dweller
In a small space like a condo, apartment or bungalow, everything’s got to earn its footprint. Take this gorgeous faux-fur throw, for instance. By night, it’s great for curling up with a great book. By day, however, it rolls up into a compact little bundle that doubles as a lumbar cushion. Brilliant!

Even the least horticulturally-inclined can (usually) cope with simple succulents. In contemporary concrete planters crafted by Canadian artisans, they provide a welcome hit of holiday greenery that’s marvellously low-maintenance.
