Article, A Taste of the Mountains in any Retreat
Regardless of the location or the architectural style of your summer retreat, it is possible to create a mountain-like atmosphere. Allow majestic scenery and a crisp mountain air appearance to permeate your summer living space with the flexible use of paint, color and design.
