W. KARIN MELBERG SCHWIER IS! HEATHER FRITZ

One of the more unusual islands in the news recently is the quirky and troublesome one near the end of Yann Martel’s Life of Pi. In your home, the kitchen island is likely more top of mind with it often being the centre point of the most used room in your home.

With all sorts of amazing configuration ideas for islands, when Saskatoon HOME saw this U shaped island we thought it was worth taking a close look! This inventive twist for the kitchen is the brainchild of Nathan and Dallas Stobbe, Donna Senterre and their team at Haven Builders.

On An Island

Using a multitude of fabulous stringed instruments made of wood, metal, old cigar boxes and even sports implements, Harry Manx has carved himself a unique path. Interview by Steve Bailey.

Out in the Gulf Of Georgia not far from Vancouver dwells Harry Manx; maverick, innovator and one of the finest exponents of Indian slide guitar in the Western world. Harry’s Salt Spring Island abode is also home to his exotic and downright bizarre collection of stringed slide instruments. It’s a suitably idyllic setting for a colourful character.

Manx’s blend of Indian, delta and contemporary influences sets him completely apart from

In Hot Springs, a husband-and-wife homebuilder team creates the perfect kitchen for entertaining

THE COBBLER’S CHILDREN MAY need new shoes, but that stereotype doesn’t hold true for this homebuilding husband-and-wife team. Erin and Don Hinkle have lived in six houses in the ten years since they began developing homes on Lake Hamilton, and by now—with help from a trusted team of architects and designers—they are able to execute their vision easily.

Don, who ran manufacturing plants for Kohler, and Erin, who worked in information technology for an education company, came into homebuilding by chance after Erin looked at a wooded

ISLAND IN THE STORM

As the result of a chance encounter with design students studying the impact of the olympics on the unique area of Hackney Wick, Colin Priest has organised their work in to an exposition to coincide with the London Festival of Architecture

The prospect of urban change and the everyday negotiation of regeneration can be uniquely witnessed in Hackney Wick right now. Cut off by the infrastructural margins of the A12, the Lea River and the Greenway path, the area has become a peripheral periphery, a working island nevertheless. Signifcant as an influential creative urban community on the edge of Olympic

WE’RE NOT SURPRISED THAT THE MALDIVES, MAURITIUS AND THE SEYCHELLES STILL TOP YOUR HONEYMOON WISH LIST. HERE’S WHO’S DOING IT BEST…

ST REGIS, MAURITIUS

Like its big sister Manhattan, the brand-new St Regis Mauritius is one classy lady. Thankfully, pretensions are few (no one bats an eyelid at our seen-better-days flip-flops) and its locations, on a 900m stretch on the south of the island, adds a breezy vibe to its refinement. All of the 172 rooms have the requisite view (sparkling Indian Ocean), best enjoyed with a signature La Belle Creole Mary cocktail. Most of the action takes place around

Ryty

Snow fell early in November and closed all the passes in the Barguzin range. Wolf Pack, which controls the eastern shore of the lake to the north of the river Big Chivyrkuy, was cut off from the rich mining and little snow taiga Padej.

All frosty January wolves roamed the coastal hills, but other than the pitiful remnants of hides and already gnawed bones in old hustle to find it did not work out. The pack kopilas anger, ready at any moment to result in a bloody fight. Six animals — leader, wolf, three profit and pereyarok animal instinct knew

Quest in the hockey mask

The game, which will be today, it was discovered in July of this year, under such dubious circumstances, that I am having a legitimate suspicion. Do you remember Paul McCartney once told an anecdote about how "Beatles" We are going to go on a new tour, calling himself "Randy and rockets" and speaking in a hockey mask? However, they somehow did not think that they can identify the voices …

So, maybe Missing on Lost

I LOOK NO FURTHER THAN THE RAW BEAUTY OF DENIS PRIVATE ISLAND

WHO ISN’T TEMPTED BY ISLAND HOPPING in the Seychelles for their honeymoon? After all, these are the islands Kate and Wills chose for their romantic getaway and you’ll be treated like (future) kings and queens, too.

It doesn’t get much more romantic than Denis Private Island, a 30-minute flight from the main island of Mahe. And as soon as you set foot on the island, you’ll wonder why you packed so many clothes — all you really need is a bikini and a
