At last! I've been wanting to write about a brown wall with a greenish tint to it for ages, just like the one my acupuncturist has. After years of thinking about it, I finally snapped a picture after my last appointment...

Readers of this column will know I adore browns and prefer the warmer tones. But this accent wall looks so gorgeous, who am I to quibble? It has a woodsy Zen feeling to it, earthy and natural. I think if it was any redder, it would come at you too much, and a healing center requires a certain neutrality.

I've always thought that my acupuncturist has exceptional taste, without being flashy. Though this color might not have been my first choice, I think it looks great in this environment.
