Fall Colors Revamped
Good news! You are not limited to wearing brown, forest green and mustard corduroy this fall. You don’t have to decorate the kitchen with harvest themed hand towels either. Bright, lively hues are totally in. While traditional colors are certainly acceptable and prevalent, you don’t have to ditch the mint scarf that you wore all summer. Brights are too much of a stretch? How about plums, warm grays and muted blues? You have no reason to be drab, so don’t.
I generally don’t shop at Pottery Barn, but I must say they do try hard. There is something to be said for effort. How I wish all things were colorful, clean and thoughtful (this includes people.) I was happy to stumble across this cheerful, nicely lit candle display occupying a quiet corner of an otherwise crowded, noisy mall. www.potterybarn.com
Anthropologie might be the most pleasant shopping experience anyone can have. The aesthetic is perfect from start to finish, a sensory rollercoaster that makes you sad when you have to leave. I love Anthropologie and these cute measuring spoons. They make me want to get all domestic and bake something. www.anthropologie.com
