H&H is changing (and getting smaller this week).
Under the new guidance of Tom DeKay, we're seeing a new mix of stories that intersect more with pop culture, downplay the news of the decor world and detail trends like the culture of house swapping. We're interested to see where this is all going...

Following the Stars to a New Color Scheme: We've worked on this living room (and failed miserably) too! Friends Andy and Alex Postman turn to a new reality TV show to figure out their Brooklyn living room. Andy (the writer of one of our favorite books) is not sure he's happy about it.

At Home in the World: "House swapping is not just a bargain, it's a way of life. In the swapper subculture, says a member, "everyone's kind of chill.""
- Personal Shopper: MR gives us a good roundup of summery, outdoor items that are pleasing as well as practical.
On Shelter Island, an Ungarden: It's nice to have Anne Raver back up north. This week she takes us to a beautiful landscaped home on Shelter Island by Lisa Stamm and Dale Booher.
