In an article I saw today they were talking about colors for a restful retreat...in this case for a world traveler. I love the colors in this room...neutral without even a hint of mauve. The gray is gray and the brown is cowhide brown. The tiny bits of gold and red are included only as accents. I could do this in my living room tomorrow and never look back! Be sure to take a look at the Style at Home's new neutrals article. Times may be changing.

|Victor Alfaro cardigan...love it!|
Recently I was shopping with a friend in a big department store. She picked up this sweater that almost made me swoon...something I don't do very much. The color was that pure purple you see on perfect plums or a hydrangea that has just the right kind of fertilizer.

In another article on Style at Home they had featured this same color pairing..but on the walls. This is a new trend in colors for the fall at home and in your closet.

I bought a little cardigan at Target before we went on our trip to Montana. It is a black and white leopard design that goes with almost everything I own. Believe it or not these little inexpensive sweaters last washing after washing. The one I saw today on their website cost $8.74 on clearance. It has that touch of purple as a trim with my all time favorite animal print...zebra.

Style for our bodies or our walls...it seems they are following the same trends when it comes to colors and designs. It turns out we shop for paint and furniture the same as we shop for a very expensive outfits...interesting!
