frame up some cozy fall color

Highlight the beauty of fallen leaves with a gorgeous autumn-themed gallery wall. At the start of the season, gather foliage in a variety of shapes, sizes and hues and press the leaves in a book. Once they’re completely dry and flat, attach each to a piece of parchment paper with double-sided tape, then frame them. “I don’t step back to appreciate nature nearly enough,” says Lauren Shaver of Bless’er House, who designed the space above. “This activity allowed me to slow down and notice the individual beauty of each leaf while doing something fun with my kids.” Photo and interior design by Lauren Shaver/Bless’er House.…

fabulous fall reading

FEEL-GOOD READ Harlem Shuffle by Colson Whitehead Harlem furniture salesman Ray doesn’t set out to live the life of crime his father did, but times are hard and he has a family to feed. When his cousin Freddie passes him jewelry that needs selling, Ray doesn’t ask too many questions. His careful facade as an upstanding citizen starts to crumble when he and Freddie find themselves mixed up in a heist at the Hotel Theresa and things go about as wrong as they possibly could.

no time like the present

When I was little, I lived in Michigan, where there were occasional tornado threats. I knew about this well because my parents drilled into me what we would have to do if one came: We’d go directly to the basement. But wait, we didn’t have a basement, only a much-dreamed-about crawl space that I was never allowed to go into…unless there was a storm. I couldn’t wait! My 4-year-old self thought hiding out under the house would be super exciting. Luckily, my family never actually had to go through a disaster like a tornado, but for anyone who has, forethought and careful preparation are key to how families are able to make it through. This kind of preplanning rarely makes it to the top of our daily to-do’s. So we at…
