As a new season approaches, many of us look forward to small changes around the house as we prepare to cozy on down. As I type this, I just stepped out of my red rubber boots (it can be muddy at the fleamarket), and I’m wearing a very fall ensemble: red and navy plaid with jeans.
Plaid is such a fall thing…but my mind is on stripes right now…
Lovely Stripes for Fall
Just a few cozy, stripe-y, classic decor finds with fall comfort in mind to consider.
Here’s a book in my Amazon cart right now from an artist with legendary stripes…

Sweater Weather Stripes
Even more subtle? Cableknit is a modified stripe, isn’t it? I’m pushin’ it, but when I think of chilly weather ahead, I think of these gorgeous chunky knit throws.

Organization Ideas for Fall
Even though we all desire to have a more orderly nest, the only thing trickier than getting organized is STAYING organized…yes?
Since I need all the help I can get, I was interested in exploring this new release: The REAL SIMPLE Method to Organizing Every Room (Oxmoor House; September 4, 2018; $26.99) by the Editors of REAL SIMPLE, a practical and inspiring handbook with clear checklists, practical tips, and gorgeous photographs to help you declutter one room at a time.
Divided by room, each chapter shares the items you need (and the ones you don’t) for setting up a well-organized home as well as tips, strategies, and storage solutions from the best organizers in the business, including Ashley Murphy, Molly Graves, Andrew Mellen, Alexandra Wilson and more.
How to Create a Small, Organized Entry
I don’t know about you, but when I feel overwhelmed in terms of where to begin cleaning or organizing our home, I like to start with the entry. What to do if yours is tiny and inefficient? This book addresses this and other key issues.
There are so many books about organizing! What makes The REAL SIMPLE Method different?
It’s all about creating small, simple habits that make a big impact on everyday life. It’s an organizing plan with your well-being and self-care in mind.
The REAL SIMPLE Method will help you think of your home in new ways, so that a bedroom chair isn’t just a dumping ground for morning outfit rejects—it’s a comfy place to sip coffee in the morning or settle in at the end of the day with a good book.
