Living The 'Tiki' Life: It will be an uphill battle to convince us that "Tiki decor" is ever a good thing, but here are some devotees that are giving it a try.

Life on the flip side: A couple decides to switch around the entrance of their home.

So beautifully, naturally spare: architect Irving Gill, a pioneer of such technical advances as tilt-slab construction, cherished the interplay of building and plants, creating a distinctively regional style.

The Scout:

• A spotlight on eco-cool designs: The Mio Collection led by Colombian brothers Isaac and Jaime Salm, makes beauty eco friendly.

• A clear shot at vintage: Stefan Lawrence, purveyor of futuristic design at the furnishings emporium Twentieth sure has some perfect pieces.

• Garden treasure hunting: Lynette Proler wanders Europe in search of garden antiques. She will share tales of her hunts during a lecture from 9:30 a.m. to noon Feb. 23 at the Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden.

Hawaii in the brush lands: In case you need to read more about Tiki.
