3 :01x03 - New Country Style

Things are really changing in the country. There's a whole new look that's a far cry from charm, chintz and cozy, overstuffed antiques. Lynda Reeves explores the notion of new country in a converted barn in the Hamptons, in a modernist home in Caledon, at the office and in her own home. It's a journey to the unexpected with a very new country style.

5 :01x05 - How Small Is Too Small?

The most popular issue of House & Home magazine is the Small Spaces issue, but publisher Lynda Reeves wonders whether those homes really function—or are they a conspiracy by developers to convince us that living in tiny environments is really possible?

7 :01x07 - Is Living in Color Better?

House & Home publisher Lynda Reeves explores the use of color in different cultures and countries and asks why we're so terrified of it in North America.

8 :01x08 - Is the Dining Room Over?

House & Home publisher Lynda Reeves tells us of a casual dinner invitation that sent guests into a spiral when they discovered a carefully-laid dining room table.

House & Home publisher Lynda Reeves recalls a 10-year-old house guest whose jaw breaker fell out of his mouth while he lay asleep on her white sofa.

10 :01x10 - What Happened to Pretty?

House & Home publisher Lynda Reeves recalls visiting friends at their century-old farmhouse. It was decorated by one of the few remaining great decorators who still works in a traditional style—lots of English chintz, pretty French toiles and antique furniture. It's a style not seen very often anymore, maybe because it's too pretty. Lynda considers the absence of pretty in our design world and wonders, "What happened to pretty, and what is the new pretty?"

11 :01x11 - Should An Addition Be Seamless?

House & Home publisher Lynda Reeves recalls a modern addition on an elegant old house that was so inconsistent with the original look of the home it appeared as though it had been won in a game show. She wonders if it has become "in" and edgy to have a modern addition to a traditional home. Or should it be seamless?

12 :01x12 - Are We Stuck In Neutral?

House & Home publisher Lynda Reeves recalls a young house guest who took a tour of her home and then remarked it was just like all of her others—beige. Lynda took a closer look and realized that, despite at least twelve shades of grey, taupe and cream on her walls, floors and furniture, her young guest was right. Her choices were all outside of the color spectrum, which left Lynda asking the question, "Are we stuck in neutral?"

13 :01x13 - What is the Well-Traveled Room?

House & Home publisher Lynda Reeves asks whether you really need to be well traveled in order to have a well-traveled room. She points out an expensive stove doesn't necessarily mean there's a chef in the house and she has a Buddha but has never been to Thailand. The question is, "What is the well-traveled room and can you create it from your armchair?"
