This week, The New York Times Home & Garden section covers the plight of an Urban Nomad, the growing trend of having your home photographed by a professional, living walls (pictured at left), re-potting plants for spring, and a Finnish cabin in Arkansas...

Playwright Brooke Berman chronicles her own life as an Urban Nomad (30 apartments in 20 years!) in her new play, "Hunting and Gathering": Moving Soon to an Apartment Near You. There is an audio slideshow and cool graphic detailing Berman's many moves around New York City.

Apartment Therapy has looked at publishing your own home book and watercolor house portraits as ways to document your living space. The New York Times takes it up a notch in Picture, Picture on the Wall ... and looks at the high-end where a growing number of people are hiring professional photographers to document their home.
