What better way to pass a dreary winter weekend than with the March issue of Domino, which is bursting with tips and tricks for the home as part of the annual green issue. Environmentally friendly highlights include:
*The green list, a comprehensive product guide for each room of your home plus energy-saving suggestions, such as a reminder to unplug appliances when they’re not in use.
*An interview with Silda Wall Spitzer, wife of New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, who has gained notoriety for her green transformation of the Victorian executive mansion. Her favorites include fluorescent light bulbs and Ecover cleaning products.
*Advice on hardscaping from garden designer Judy Kameon.
*Pointers from style director Dara Caponigro on what architectural features create an established, historic feel in a newer home. She points to proportion and square footage as the two biggest construction differences from past to present, and also suggests laying down wide-plank floorboards stained in a medium to dark hue to create a sense of authenticity.
