Spring is here! H&H is red hot this week with news of the Milan's design fair, I Saloni, as well as the International Home Furishings Market in Highpoint, NC, along with a variety of articles that cover the home front (no gardens, though, sorry Mary - Czarina :-)).
This week is also a great example of what H&H can do best: cover the world's events with good, largescale photos that really begin to give you a sense of what is going on. That said on our part, feel free to read and weigh in yourself as we run the second week of "Hot or Not H&H?"
