A Welcome Note Fall is my favorite season, partly because those not-too-hot, not-too-cold, don-your-flannel days are few and far between. (That’s my family dressed as “Goldilocks and the 3 Barretts” on a bafflingly warm Halloween!) So when that autumn magic does strike, there’s an urgency to live in the moment—to go to the pumpkin patch, to sip the cider, to gather ye gourds before Mariah’s “All I Want for Christmas” is on radio repeat. And no one feels this seasonal urgency like magazine editors. Because we print the October issue in mid-summer, we must photograph fall stories a year in advance if we want to take advantage of the nursery’s pumpkin plethora or capture fall foliage in its full glory. (One exception: The pumpkin vines on page 47 were plucked from…

a cozy breakfast room

COUNTRY CLASSIC WOOD-BURNING STOVES With their distinctive shapes and energy-efficiency, freestanding cast-iron stoves have been warming hearths—and hearts—for over a century. BOOK SMARTS THE ART OF EFFORTLESS Featuring 16 recent projects, Tom’s latest design book, Tom Scheerer: More Decorating, is a master class in easy, unpretentious style. STATEMENT-MAKER WELL-ROUNDED WALLPAPER Tom took inspiration from vintage embroidery to dream up the black-and-white “Cecil” wallpaper (quadrillefabrics.com). “It’s cheerful without being flowery,” he says. The round motif off sets the square flooring; wood wainscoting tempers the pattern play. SPLURGE VS. SAVE MODERN WINDSORS Simple Shaker-inspired lines and a bold coat of color bring a fresh look to the classic spindled chair, providing a counterbalance to the room’s more traditional elements, such as the antique dining table. STORAGE STAPLE ACCORDION RACK The more the merrier when it comes to layering this hardworking adjustable hanger, making it the ideal…

diy wreaths

RETRO CANDY Gather an assortment of old-fashioned candies (candywarehouse.com) in autumnal shades such as yellow, orange, and magenta. Wrap a 14-inch foam wreath form in white ribbon. Attach candy with hot-glue, layering and overlapping as you go. Finish with a yellow burlap bow. TWINE SPIDERWEB Tie six pieces of white string across a 14-inch foam wreath form, making sure to loop each one at the midway point of the first piece attached to create a central point. (This is the base of the web and should have 12 “spokes.”) Tie a long piece of string to the center point; weave and loop from the center out to create the web. If you run out of string, tie another piece to the end and continue weaving. When you reach the wreath form, tie off…
