HHG_Editor_Fay_WintRecently I was watering my garden when my neighbour's 7-year·old granddaughter, Pebbles, came over for a little chat. After asking me a number of questions, she looked at my soursop tree at the side of the house and said, "I cidn't know you have a WhatsApp tree?"

I was so arrosed but couldn't help thinking how rapidly things have changed. Even more, I came face to face with how wide generational gaps can be. In her very current lingua "WhatsApp" is used a lot more than "soursop". So much so, that in her mind they are interchangeable. Only a few years ago, WhatsApp cidn't even exist. Now it plays an essential role in our lives.

I'm sure that, like me, you find it difficult to understand how we functioned before without oomputers, tablets and especially cell phones. While they may have their negatives, they certainly make our lives much more convenient.

In this issue. Simone writes on the smart home, see page 92. Imagine where we will be in just another ten years.

We also feature two homes at extreme ends of the decor style spectl\Jm. One will take you back to a time when fine China, exquisite glassware, curvy traditional furniture and beautiful things eve,ywhere wanned your heart. The other is ultra contemporary with clean lines, exquisite fumishingsand accessories of a different sort oompfimented by a view to die for! I believe, regardless of your style preference, you will love looking at both these homes.

Whether we lean more to the "WhatsApp" or the "soursop" age, it  is great to appreciate differences and to see how we can benefit by warmly embracing these. There is much to see, read and learn in this issue -So Enjoy!
