Oddly, spring is the season when we open our homes to fresh air and embark on epic cleaning sprees to have our houses ready for... all the time we spend outdoors.
But it's fall, when the air turns crisp and the holidays beckon, when we really find the ''heart'' in hearth and home. While the cooling weather may turn your focus inward, don't think you need to do without style. Fall's a time to make your home as fabulous and functional as you want -- or need -- it to be.
Whether you're choosing colors to suit your personal palette, picking the best renovation plan for the kitchen, tackling that pesky closet you pledged to organize, or simply getting your garden in order for next year's spring, fall is the perfect time to focus on the space you call home.
