gray and camel

House Beautiful
photo stolen from Laura Casey

It's not a Fall thing with me. (Although Fall is my favorite season.) My love for this 'pumpkin pie'/raw sienna color is seasonless. That's it - on the sofa. Oh, and looky, a gray wall...

To me, that's the worlds most beautiful color combination. 

The room ain't bad, either...

My thanks to Laura Casey. I don't usually like to nab photos from others' current posts, but I just couldn't help myself...

The rug is gorgeous too! My grandparents have the pumpkin spice look, with gorgeous orientals. Has always held a special place in my heart. Happy weekend to you. Flower show in Columbia! YAY! --Gretchen O.

Me too... there is something about that rusty orange - almost acorn - and gray that makes my heart sing. I love it. This room is so dreamy!

"It's" definitely in "the air"---these colors! But I love them all year. I just posted about "oranges", grays and turquoisy blues last night! Love them! Looky here:

I love this entire house designed by Eleanor Cummings. I think the details of this house were my very second post 7 months ago. It's fabulous and people will be talking about it years from now. My favorite look, hands down. Have a great weekend. Mona

Gray and gold are my favorite color combo. This pic makes me think of pumpkins I suppose, maybe a bit of apple cider too:)
