Forget spring cleaning; now that it's officially fall, we're looking for ways to decompress and reorganize—all at the same time. Towards that end, stay tuned this coming week for our Happier at Home issue. For weekend inspiration, here's what's been catching our eye this week:
Above: A renovated beach house in Kent, England, makes use of natural rubber and sustainably-harvest wood to absorb heat during the winter months. For this and more, see our post on Gardenista: 10 Modern Houses Gone to the Dark Side.
Christine is taking a look at the new rug collection by Paul Smith for The Rug Company.

Margot is planning a pilgrimage to see artist (and friend) Christopher Russell's bronze Bee Gates for the newly renovated Ninth Avenue subway station in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Russell, she says, stands ready to take private commissions.
