So far 15 of the Make It Right NOLA houses –1/10th of the planned number–are completed in New Orleans. According to the NYT these houses are becoming known as “The Brad Pitt Houses” and are a new tourist attraction there. I think they’re chi-ful but some are concerned that the architects invited to work on the project have not thought to incorporate references to familiar New Orleans themes. What do you think?

Just finished watching the 25th Anniversary Rock & Roll Hall of Fame show on HBO and was intrigued to see Annie Lennox wearing a t-shirt that said “HIV POSITIVE”. Turns out the singer has created a charity foundation to raise awareness of AIDS and does not have the virus herself. Check out her website. Donating to good causes is good feng shui.
BTW, if you saw the Rock & Roll show, what did you think? I thought it was brilliant how they took what could have been a boring show of old dinosaurs and brought in surprise artists to sing with other bands (like Ray Davie of the Kinks singing with Metallica!). Rock on!
I love the use of color in this pic (I can’t remember the original source for the photo…if you know it, please comment). Keeping most of the room white but painting the trim and window pane trim yellow (or blue, or green, or red, or orange, etc!) really gives the room a good vibe. Match your pillows and accessories to the trim for more fun and feng shui.
