House & Home Roundup: 7.1 pts.
Zig-Zagging like a hockey pro, H & H switches up the front page and heads off in an entirely different direction this week. New writers, a big article on preservation politics (?), and no garden (sigh). But there are some gems here, and we find the change refreshing.
To billing goes to Marianne Rohrlich’s article on children’s design: Is 2½ Too Old to Be a V.P. for Design?. Getting down and dirty in the hip world of children’s design, this Personal Shopper rakes in the products and the personalities shaping the scene.
Also, big heads up on guess what? A Small, Cool Apartment. Like Magic, a Pocket-Size Loft is a great little house tour of Hans Dorsinville’s 550-square-foot one-bedroom.
