Sorry if this has been asked/answered, I couldn't find it by searching...

Is there a simple way to set certain widget areas to ignore widget styling choices?

I want the styling set for the sidebar, but not for added areas on the header, footer and body.

CSS is 'cascading' so any HTML element that matches the CSS Selection will have the rules applied. If you want all the 'widgets' to have a background of 'red' you would use the 'widget' class
HTML Code:
.widget {background: #red;}
but if you wanted the widgets in teh footer to have a background of 'blue' you would have to have a more specific CSS Selector like this
HTML Code:
#footer .widget {background: blue;}
to get these CLASS's and ID's, you need to look at the generated source of the page.
