Autumn Color

The leaves are changing (remember - I don't actually live in Key West!) and the view out my window is looking decidedly orange.

I've never been a fan of this autumn version of orange for interiors...but no matter shade of orange you prefer, it certainly warms up a room.

Speaking of autumn themed interiors - have you seen the cover of House Beautiful?

I really hate this. Well - hate is a strong word. But I vehemently dislike this wall color. I do appreciate that it's an interesting wall treatment and it certainly does "glow." But at the end of the day, I just can't get behind poo-brown walls.

I think it might be time to do some more "looking for what I DO like" in current interior design. I get way more out of that than I do talking about what I don't like. This is something I did last year with Elle Decor's top 25 designers of 2010 and I loved the process of broadening my perspective and considering new ideas. It's so easy for people to become set in their ways - and design style offers no exception. I've been meaning to do the same thing with Elle Decor's top 25 for 2011. I'm a few months behind that issue of course...but better late than never. I'll start next week.

Until then - have a wonderful weekend (possibly with some falling leaves).
