Welcome to our fourth Eight Step Cure! For those of you who missed the last three, starting this week we'll be getting started on
Curing our homes, following the eight chapters of our book, Apartment Therapy: The Eight Step Home Cure. Our goal? To form an online group together and share in making our own homes beautiful, healthy and organized in time for Thanksgiving. For the first time, we're also holding the Cure in four cities: CH, SF, LA and NY, so you can join a group that's close to you.

For all info go to the The Book Blog.

This Week's Assignment: Get your hands on a copy of the book and read through page 69. This gives you all the ground work and gets you started with the interview and short quiz on the health of your home.

Here's a really nice pic from ATBettsbillabong's style tray. It's from LivingEtc, and she copied it from someone else, but all of that is fine. Trading and sharing good ideas is the name of the game.

And here's her bedroom "before", which has a really nice, light feeling to it.

The Cure posts will go up twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays, allowing for plenty of comment space. We will be pulling comments and pics to the front page post each week and everyone is urged to take pics and post them to this great Flickr pool or simply tag them with "apartmenttherapycure." See our old pics here too.

The Fall Cure is live in all four of our Home city sites:

Chicago & their Flickr group
San Francisco & their Flickr group
Los Angeles & their Flickr Group
New York & our Flickr group
Green Home & their Flickr Group

Please choose the site nearest your home to join, but feel free to browse on all!
