This week H&H rides high again with a wide array of articles, a number of which carry great pics and focus on new interior design. There's a lot of furniture to look at AND a fascinating article on Winifred Gallagher's new book, "House Thinking: A Room-by-Room Look at How We Live," which delves into our favorite subject, decorating for how it FEELS not just how it looks.

Living at Cool, Not Just Visiting: Ian Schrager is at it again, this time at 40 Bond Street. Regardless if you could or would ever want to live in his new $2,800 a sq/ft condos, this makes for good design gawking.
Aging at Home: For a Lucky Few, a Wish Come True: Good news for those of us that still have some time before retirement. "Community-based models for aging in place designed by the people who use them are the wave of the future." Put together with Ms. Gallagher's book, this movement seems long overdue.
