STAYING HOME HAS BROUGHT OUT my inner homemaker even more than I thought possible. Seriously. It’s next level. I’m making my own labne, drying lavender, forming plant-protecting cloches out of chicken wire (those pesky possums are still dining out on my herb garden). I even baked bread! Completely unnecessary as I live within walking distance of four supermarkets and three bakeries. But I can’t stop nesting. It makes me feel calm amid all the chaos. And I suspect I’m not alone. This issue we wanted to get back to nature. The homes are all beautifully textural, earthy and full of warmth. There’s a wonderful story on making your own all-natural cleaning products on p110.

YOU DON’T OFTEN HEAR the words design icon and flat pack in the same sentence. After all, iconic design objects are often thought of as exclusive and very expensive. But it’s not hard to get your hands on an Isamu Noguchi light sculpture. Although these light-as-a-feather paper lanterns are traditionally handcrafted in Japan, they can be bought online, flat packed and shipped to your door, and in doing so have become a universally iconic household item. Born in California to an American mother and a Japanese father, Isamu Noguchi lived in Japan until he was 13 before returning to America with his mother.
