Rescue from Domestic Perfection: Dan Ho on the rise

Did anyone read the article in the Times about Dan Ho? Titled "The Imperfectionist", it caught our eye because we remember being intrigued by his short-lived magazine, Rescue.

We had flipped throught an issue or two at the bookstore, thinking it seemed interesting and wondering about its origins...and then it disappeared.

It seems Dan Ho and his ideas are not hard to find any longer, he has a new book and a new series on Discovery Health.

He is not about makeovers or catalog-perfect spaces. He advocates that the soul of a home is not the much mentioned kitchen but the inhabitants of the space. He is more about divesting than aquiring in the pursuit of style.

We missed the first airing of his special on Discovery Health (the series starts in the new year), but as cable goes, we are sure we can catch it again sometime soon...and we are curious.

Anyone see the show, read the book, remember the magazine? Thoughts on this burgeoning empire?
