With clear, sapphire skies and blazing foliage, autumn in these parts has been nothing short of spectacular. As a dear friend put it, 'It's like Nature is apologizing for the last couple years.'

This kitchen, with its persimmon cabinets warm against stark walls and cool concrete, seems a harbinger of that transition.
