House & Home Roundup: 11.3.05
Not the best issue, but interesting. This week H&H gets hip deep into Chip Kidd’s home and, boy, is it wacky (but refreshing). Also, be sure to check out: Nest founder Joseph Hotzman is back with a Nest inspired gallery, there’s an awful guy who’s peeing all over Andes, NY, and there’s a new New Orleans inspired toile being sold for charity (partially).
- The Book on a Graphics Superhero: A fine house tour of revolutionary book jacket designer Chip Kidd’s pad, by the inspiringly unctious Penelope Green! Pics stripped out online! Shit! Foiled again. Hold onto that paper.
- Where Chip Kidd Shops!
- A Rap Minister Works the Aisles: Shopping with Rev Run of Run DMC. Can you say “not like Chip Kidd”?
- Calling the Ocean’s Bluff: Hello, Global Warming! There’s been real bad erosion out on Long Island this past month. Expensive houses are getting close to the drink and town governments won’t let homeowners do anything to stop it. Ouch.
- A Daddy Techbucks Makes a Village a Hot Spot: Yuck. Sorry, Andreas Gerdes is not our style.
- Q. What are the rules about choosing lampshades?
- Q. I’m going to install baskets and shelves in my closets to increase storage. Is there anything else I should be considering?
