small truths

CONFESSION #1: I’m a small-space voyeur. Though I crave high ceilings and extra rooms in my own house, I can’t resist a real estate show with “tiny” in the title. Watching couples tour houseboat-size homes, I talk back to the screen: “There’s no way your stuff will fit in there!” “But don’t you want a bedroom you can stand up in?”That brand of small-space living isn’t practical for most of us, but I get sucked in every time. Downsizing in the extreme makes for good TV.CONFESSION #2: At H&H, we’re a little more generous in our definition of “small.” The average house in North America is about 2,000 square feet, according to a 2015 study — so half that size, give or take, feels right for this issue.

Thank you for featuring a diverse range of design styles and budgets in the June issue of House & Home. It was an interesting, inspiring and enjoyable read. Keep up the good work!— HEIDI OKELLKUDOS!Readers loved the sustainable, budget-friendly decorating in July’s “Second Nature” feature. They also enjoyed hearing homeowner and designer Kelly Anderson’s personal story. “This was an inspiring article to read,” wrote Pam. “And thank you for showcasing New Brunswick’s beauty, too.”HOT BUTTONIt seems we hit a nerve when we called the 8,000-square-foot summer home in July’s “True North” feature a “cottage.” “You are completely out of touch with your readers, and the 99 per cent, when you present a grand Muskoka summer home as a ‘cottage,’” wrote Linda. Other readers shared her feelings — and we take…
