Die Welt verstehen, ohne einen Fuß vor die Tür zu setzen Was bleibt nach der „Geschichte von fast allem“ eigentlich noch zu schreiben? Die Geschichte von fast allem anderen, natürlich. Bill Bryson hat sich daher in seinen vier Wänden umgesehen und sich gefragt: Warum leben wir eigentlich, wie wir leben? Warum nutzen wir ausgerechnet Salz und Pfeffer, und weshalb hat unsere Gabel vier Zinken? Aber es bleibt nicht bei Geschichten von Bett, Sofa und Küchenherd. Die Geschichte des Heims ist auch immer eine der großen Entdeckungen und Abenteuer. Ohne die Weltausstellung in London hätte man vermutlich das Wasserklosett nicht so schnell zu schätzen gelernt. Und ohne die großen Entdecker müssten wir wohl ohne Kaffee, Tee oder Kakao auskommen. Bill Bryson zeigt uns unser Heim, wie wir es noch nie gesehen haben. Und wir verstehen ein wenig mehr, warum es so ist, wie es ist.

Indoor hanging baskets? Who needs them! Learn all about the Japanese art of creating pot-less suspended plants, known as kokedama, from New Zealand hanging plant extraordinaire and botanist, Coraleigh Parker. Coraleigh's moss ball creations, featuring orchids, air plants, cacti, succulents, flowering bulbs, tropical plants and even small trees and herbs, are suspended in mid-air and supported by nothing more than a series of strings, intricately wrapped, cocoon style, around a root ball. Kokedamas are very simple to make and have a magical quality; by suspending them in the air with string, with Coraleigh’s help and 25 easy-to-follow projects, you can create a hanging garden inside your home in no time. Decorating with indoor plants has never been more popular and, following on from terrariums, concrete pot planting and the obsession with fern, cacti and succulents, contemporary kokedama is the next trend that’s spreading fast. Kokedama is the ultimate botanical trend as it offers everything through a single, versatile and inexpensive craft: you can turn any of your favourite plants into a kokedama “on a string”!
