1. Why go out into the cold when you can have the outdoors delivered to your door? Call a garden shop like Dry Nature Designs in NYC and get a basket of birch logs or a bowl of ruby pomegranates shipped. They will look fresh all season long!
2. Where are New Yorkers supposed to store their beach chairs and umbrellas? If you don’t have a storage unit or a free closet, stack them under your bed. Typically, it’s bad feng shui to put things under there; however, since the “energy” of these items has connotations of relaxation, you can rest easy.
