autumn is the ideal season for decorating.

Why? The end of the long, warm days of summer signals the return to fun and satisfying indoor pursuits. In short—it’s nesting time. Even better, the season brings with it a bounty of glorious natural materials to layer your nest with color, texture, and creativity. Inspired by the season, we’ve also layered these pages with ideas for inviting the beauty of fall into your rooms and your gatherings. In “A Feast for the Senses” (page 46), we invite you to a renovated—but still delightfully rustic—Massachusetts barn for a harvest party that serves up appetizing recipes and charming decorating ideas. And in “Harvesting Beauty” (page 66), we transform the goodies we found at farm stands and pumpkin patches into clever seasonal projects that are easy to make and are sure to warm…

at home with holly blain

FALL FEELS LIKE NESTING TIME FOR MANY, INCLUDING Holly Blain. In her Brooklyn, Michigan, house, every September starts with this ritual. “First, I clear out and take down all the summer stuff, so I’m starting with a clean slate,” she says, “then I shop my basement.” Holly’s basement functions as something of an antiques booth, stowing the inventory of collectibles she’s built up over her past six years as a homeowner. Some of it she sells on eBay; some of it she bequeaths to friends or family; most of it she keeps for herself to rotate into her rooms as needed. On her freshly cleared foundation of white shiplap walls, dark wood floors, and metal fixtures, Holly first adds vintage neutrals: worn books, faded photos, wood frames. “Antiques a lot of times…

in the kitchen with sean lewis

FOR HIS OWN KITCHEN IN THE Mount Airy section of Philadelphia, interior designer Sean Lewis tried five different shades of gray-green before turning to an old favorite. “I ended up going with my sixth choice, one I had used in another house, because I knew it worked,” he says. And that was just for the trim. Sean’s color combinations change from kitchen to kitchen, but his application remains consistent: two to three colors for cabinetry, trim, and shelves; white on the walls. He chose this mix of greens and golds to bring warm personality to the kitchen in the 1920s stone house he shares with husband Geoffrey O’Donnell. Painted separately, the kitchen’s components come out looking like furniture. It’s an intentional strategy inspired by Shaker, Craftsman, and Victorian design styles. “Homes from…

betting on the farm

DON’T CALL THE YEARS OF HEARTFELT hard work Michael and Sara Jo Floyd have put into their 19th-century Kansas farmhouse a renovation. At Bryarton Farm, a restoration is underway. “To restore means to honor the original family with every choice you make,” Sara Jo says, with a smile that underscores the passion and purpose in her voice. “We are committed to making this farmhouse comfortable and functional for our family while always respecting the previous families who called this farmstead home since 1872.” Although both members of the young couple hail from small hobby farms—his in Georgia, hers in Oklahoma—they didn’t set out to restore a Folk Victorian house and its homestead in rural Kansas. In fact, after meeting in college, where they both studied art and religion, they started married…

portrait of a collector

BLAKE RICHARDSON ANSWERED THE phone in his Indianapolis home a couple of years ago and was surprised to be getting a call from St. Louis. “I know this sounds weird,” the caller said, “but my great-grandfather is hanging above your stove.” Perhaps even more strange is that Blake knew immediately what she was talking about. As a collector of vintage portraits, he has had several serendipitous connections over the years with people who recognize an ancestor on his walls. This woman was visiting Indianapolis and had seen his home featured in a local design magazine. “I said, ‘I would love to give this back to you so it could be in your family,’” Blake says. “But she told me he looked so peaceful and happy there, he could stay.” Blake is not…
