THE DÔEN SCRAPBOOK

Fall is in the Air

If late summer is the year's golden hour, autumn, it follows, is its dusk; the moment just before evening, when vibrance fades to subtlety and a new and enchanting kind of beauty floods our vision. As autumn settles in gradually, staking its claim over once-green hills as it blankets the landscape with its enchanting beauty, we too find ourselves slowing down—looking inward, grounding, and preparing for the coolest days of the year just around the corner. See below for a few of the things that nourish, support, and inspire us through this wonder-filled time of change and transition.

Autumn Nest

Bay Leaf Wreath
Here in California (and beyond), Bay Laurel trees are abundant. We love the idea of making wreaths out of their leaves to hang on the front door as a festive touch, inviting a bit of the celebratory spirit of the season into our homes. Bay leaves also happen to smell amazing, and—of course— are the perfect aromatic addition to any fall soup or stew!
Maple Butter
A sweet, creamy confection made of pure maple syrup, maple butter is a true fall delicacy. Spread it on toast or pancakes, or drizzle it on freshly harvested apples for pure autumnal bliss.
Hand-Painted Beeswax Tapers
All natural and subtly fragrant, beeswax candles are some of our absolute favorites—perfect for cozy fall evenings spent entertaining at home with friends and family. We recently fell in love with LA-based artist Esme Saleh, whose beeswax taper candles are hand-dipped in Maine using 100% beeswax and lovingly hand painted by Saleh in her studio with water-based non-toxic paint. Her enchanting Folk Art-inspired designs are sold at our friends Nickey Kehoe and Cutter Brooks shops, and would surely liven up any fall table.
