With cooler days ahead, we’ll be spending more time indoors. Maybe it’s time to try some of those fall recipes you’ve been saving up, the ones with ingredients like wild rice, butternut squash, black beans, pumpkin, caramelized onions, sauteed mushrooms or roasted red bell peppers.

Classic kitchen styles stay current and fresh looking longer. This one by Thomas Jayne is timeless and elegant. The glass door cabinets allow the china, crystal and serving pieces to be enjoyed on a daily basis.

This contemporary kitchen is all about the wood and steel. It’s another kitchen that will date well through the years. In other words it will stay in style a long time.
