PEACE IN THE NURSERY

Parents know all too well the importance of creating peace and tranquility in the nursery. Learn how to achieve this by bringing feng shui and healthy-living principles into your infant's room with the new book "The Peaceful Nursery" (Delta Trade; $15). Lifestyle experts Laura Forbes Carlin and Alison Forbes fill the book with practical and spiritual advice addressing topics such as how to arrange your baby's surroundings to encourage a good night's sleep; selecting healthy paints, fabrics and toys; and creating a positive atmosphere using feng shui philosophies. With colorful photographs and diagrams, and Quick Tip blurbs, the book helps new parents create a welcoming world for their baby. The book is available at major bookstores and at www.amazon.com.

CLEAN GREEN

Green cleaning is just one aspect of the "go green" revolution. Create a Zen environment by learning to eliminate or lessen the use of toxic cleaning products with "Clean: The Humble Art of Zen Cleansing" (Joost Eiffers; $7.95) by Michael de Jong. According to the book, all it takes is five ingredients that you may well have in your home already. All you need is salt, borax, lemon juice, baking soda and white vinegar to perform any household task, from the obvious to the more obscure. In addition to useful tips, the book features a comprehensive index chart that details what ingredients work best for just about every task -- from cleaning pet beds with baking soda to using white wine vinegar in the dishwasher. The book is available at Target, Wal-Mart, Barnes & Noble and at www.amazon.com.

HARVEST TIME

Autumn is just around the corner, and that means fall collections are available for your home decor needs. The Chris Madden for JCPenney Home Collection has just released its Fall-Winter 2007 Lookbook, filled with a variety of seasonal styles, ranging from fall-colored custom window treatments to tableware that could turn an ordinary dinner table into a classic autumn showpiece. One item that stands out is the collection's Harvest Leaf Plate. Use these maple- leaf-shaped plates to serve your favorite food, as candy dishes or simply for a warm, harvest display. The plates are about 8 inches in diameter and come in a choice of acorn brown, golden yellow, green or pumpkin orange. The suggested retail price is $15.99 per plate. Available at JC Penney stores.
