The GO Recycle bin is a really smart idea designed by by Hong Kong-based retailers Goodss Passion. Now if you look at the pictures below you can see why we say that this is a really smart idea. The lid of each bin actually has a molded sample of what you’re supposed to throw in them. The top of the bins are animated with sculptures of a bottle, tin can, and carton. These symbols are easily recognizable and clearly indicate the items allowed for disposal. As the designers put it, “intending to revolutionize the recycling industry and make it consumer-friendly, the idea of the GO bin is make recycling fun and convenience.” Finally We think that this idea could work because it’s simple, fun and very intuitive. Do you think that an idea like this could make recycling a fun and convenient routine, rather than boring and bothersome ?

You may be tempted to fill every square inch of your decorative shelving, but remember that sometimes less is more.
And who says recessed living areas need to be indoors? Your outdoor space can benefit just as much from sunken seating, as evidenced by this elegant, stone-lined patio by Dean Herald-Rolling Stone Landscapes. And for one final dose of sunken living room eye candy, feast your eyes on this over-the-top living area by Chris Barrett Designs. The former estate of Johnny Carson features giant windows overlooking a cliff in Malibu, so it’s no wonder a safe and plush sunken sofa was added to ground the space.
