small world

Since I was a kid, fall has given me a thrill of excitement but also a little shiver (winter is coming, after all). It’s an exciting time with everyone back in action and plugged in after summer’s relaxed, off-the-grid vacation months. I’m not alone. There’s something about the shorter days and cooler nights that has inspired the human imagination through the centuries in ways both celebratory and sinister. Many Northern Hemisphere cultures have fall celebrations at the time of the harvest moon to mark the line between the end of the growing season and the start of the hard winter months. It’s interesting the many similarities they share. China and Vietnam celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival with moon cakes and parades of lanterns often inscribed with riddles. During English and European fall…

Shopping for vintage decor is a global treasure hunt for Laurie Furber. The owner of Elsie Green in Concord, CA, and former Pottery Barn executive calls on her talent for sifting during her four trips to Europe each year to gather unique pieces. “I’m climbing up ladders into haylofts and digging through boxes to find that one perfect treasure.” She brings it back to her showroom, a former warehouse space made over in calming neutrals, black, and natural pine. Laurie’s instinct to edit runs deep: Instead of six styles of sofa, she offers only one versatile number. “We’re as much about what we don’t sell as what we do.” But she doesn’t ignore her customers’ urges to hunt. She stocks the back room with best sellers like jam jars, vintage…

your good-hair game plan

[COMPLAINT MY HAIR FALLS FLAT WITHIN AN HOUR OF STYLING IT [ SIMPLE SOLUTIONS] ELIMINATE BUILDUP “Oil buildup is the primary cause of limp hair,” says Nunzio Saviano, a New York City stylist and salon owner . If you have fine or thin hair, Saviano recommends sudsing up at least every other day. Thick or coarse? At least every third day. Then between cleansing, soak up excess oil with dry shampoo, or try Nunzio Saviano Dry Shampoo Sheets, $25; amazon.com. GET TO THE ROOT Lots of women go straight to a curling iron or hot rollers to boost body, Saviano says. However, creating volume only at the ends exacerbates your hair’s tendency to fall flat. His advice: Start with volumizing spray at the roots. Try Pureology’s Clean Volume Instant Levitation Mist, $28; pureology.com. Next, flip hair…
