constant craving

Like a sudden, intense desire for chocolate, change is something we all crave. The need could strike when you least expect it — you could be cleaning the kitchen when you find yourself spontaneously rearranging a bookshelf or coffee table. (Wait, should that be filed under “procrastination”?) Or, it could be the start of a long-planned renovation that scratches the itch.

Your February issue was lovely — but my heart was beating faster at the home of Denise Zidel (“Local Colour”). What a fun place to live! Her tongue-in-cheek decorating style contrasted perfectly with a tongue-stuck-out art piece. Well done, H&H; we need a smile in February!—JANE RIVERS, Rockwood, Ont. For years, I’ve looked forward to reading House & Home. Of late, however, I’ve noticed a trend that saddens me. I’m referring to pony-hide headboards, goatskin-covered desks and ostrich skin–covered side tables. I want to see the work of decor visionaries who promote kindness and respect toward our fellow creatures. Can we, please, evolve?—LUCY COLLINS, Ashton, Ont. I’ve been reading your publication since the first issue. I’m curious as to why you don’t include more exterior images of the homes you publish. Is…

We have new prints that are mostly small scale and more of a vintage look, which is different for us. OVER IT Cheap copies of things. Hello, individuality! HOT SPOT Oaxaca, Mexico. The town is lovely, and the crafts are unbelievable. INTO Beautiful eucalyptus and sycamore wood with interesting smoked or fumed finishes, and marble — we’re moving toward more dramatic veining in pinks, browns and greens.
