Fall Decorating Ideas From a Designer to the Stars
Houzz
all can be an awkward season to decorate for: The weather's not nice enough to keep the paper lanterns out, but it's too early to put up the Christmas lights. Instead of reaching into the grab bag at your nearest crafts store, take this advice from designer to the stars Adam Hunter. Despite his glamorous clients, Hunter's favorite fall decor focuses on the natural beauty of the season (which just happens to be the most affordable route).

Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan's Manhattan, NY, Home
Architectural Digest
There was no script, no pilot, basically just a sketch of an idea: a television comedy about a New York family man with a disability. But the lead role was to be played by Michael J. Fox, and the story lines would be loosely based on his experiences living with Parkinson's disease for the past two decades. (The actor's eponymous foundation has raised more than $300 million for Parkinson's research.) Multiple networks wanted the show. … In the more than 15 years since it was decorated by Marc Charbonnet in a traditional style (Architectural Digest, October 1997), the Fox-Pollan residence had gradually become a monument to entropy.

INDUSTRY NEWS


You Are What You Stack
The New York Times
That books can be beautiful is a truism of bookmaking, an ancient fine art. That they can be decorative, a graphic object to deploy on horizontal surfaces like any other bibelot, is one that designers have embraced, with the result that certain titles tend to show up with the frequency of an overplayed pop song. From Taschen's "Cabinet of Natural Curiosities," the 20-pound behemoth from 2001 with its graphic red coral cover, to vintage titles like Osa Johnson's or anything from Slim Aarons, photographer of WASPs at play during the "Ice Storm" years, the coffee table book (or the illustrated book, to use the industry parlance) can say as much about a room's designer as its owner.

The Tricky Science of Color Perception

Color is infinitely shifty. It's unstable in the presence of nearby colors. It's vulnerable to tricks of the light. It acts like it's moving when it's not. It can act like it's there when it's not. Yet the tricky, intertwined science and art of color perception still goes under-appreciated.
