Thinking of cutting down on meat? It benefits your health, the environment, and now we're told it even reduces food shortages in the developing world.

If you ever visit Niland, California, a desert town of just over 1,000 people in the southeasternmost corner of the state, you're sure to find Salvation Mountain. The giant, bright relgious tribute is made of over 100,000 gallons of paint and stands 50 feet tall by 150 feet in breadth. Artist Leonard Knight started building the mountain in the 1980s and lived there for 30 years, passing days adding to and caring for his life's work. Since Knight, now 82, entered into a long-term care facility in late 2011, concern has been raised for the future of the site. Without constant upkeep, the harsh environment can quickly erode the fragile mountain made of clay and paint.

interior design by Pietro Carlo Pellegrini This classic contemporary interior design by Pietro Carlo Pellegrini brings new life (and love!) to an old attic of a historic building located in Lucca, Italy. An urban-style living room is occupied by two chic sofas – a regal blue “Mex Cube Sofa” by designer Piero Lissoni and the crisp, white Philippe Starck “Private” sofa – facing the piece de resistance, a black Bisazza mosaic wall dubbed Napoleon, designed by Carlo Dal Bianco. (Love the white Cactus sculpture by Gufram!) Light oak floors and an exposed-beam white-painted ceiling lend the space a Nordic style. Through deceivingly small windows, natural light filters through gauzy white curtains and floods this large space. The kitchen is enclosed behind an ultra-modern folding glass wall. White cabinets line the remaining walls and at the center, a black table-style island provides prep space, a cooktop and eating area. An intriguing blue-lit hallway leads you from the living and dining areas to the bedrooms. The master suite is a dreamy space furnished with a cool, white LIPL bed by Jean Marie Massaud and Cloud end tables by Piero Lissoni. The ensuite bathroom, also a black Bisazza masterpiece, is accessorized by an unusual mirror hovering over a chic Bull stone sink by Antonio Luppi.(o)
Let these airy oases across the globe spur some ideas for creating your own refuge.
