The Germiest Place on the Entire Beach

The next time you spread out your towel on a peaceful stretch of sand and settle in to catch a few rays, think–or try not to think–about this.

A new study that examined sand and seawater from Hawaiian beaches found that the sand has anywhere from 10 to 100 times higher the amount of bacteria than the water–which is basically the opposite of what we usually worry about.

Swimmers are often discouraged from going into the water on days when high levels of fecal-contaminated bacteria are found to be present. But no one really considers that there’s even more bacteria lurking in the sand, which creates a moist, dark environment that helps it thrive. Come into contact with it and you’ll be looking at a stomach bug, rashes or worse. Continue reading

Clever Outdoor Living Space at Berwick from OFTB, Melbourne

Landscape design inspiration that comes “out from the blue” is the specialty of Melbourne’s OFTB  The blend of indoor and outdoor living here makes the most of a long, narrow space and a high elevation: freeform stone walls surround a luxurious porcelain tiled lap pool and spa, with a complete outdoor “retreat” that’s inviting by day and absolutely stunning by night. Notice that lovely red glow in the lights? Look more closely and you’ll see that that red comes from a shining surface on cabinetry that cleverly hides kitchenette appliances: a built-in barbecue, sink, and fridge are ready to help serve up food for a crowd, then recess behind smooth doors when not in use.

 

Also included in this plan are other amenities to help make entertaining easy: the built-in daybed and dining table and chairs are surrounded by cedar cladding for a great warm look. Other natural materials include spotted gum timber on the deck, and recycled timber tops the bench seat along the stone wall (with a convenient powder room and shower included, this “outdoor” area is almost a guest suite!) Sturdy steel posts hold the fencing; lawn and garden beds provide great “green” visual interest and contribute to privacy screening. And recessed pot lights in the cedar “roof” and up-lighting spots around the shrubbery give the space a special ambience after dark, perfect for moonlight swims or pool parties. It all ties together in a harmonious, cohesive, and inviting whole: not bad for something “out from the blue.” Continue reading
