Highgate House


















Australian interior designer Leigh Boswell of Highgate House is the talent behind this tropical abode in Baroomba, a suburb in the Sunshine Coast of Queensland! I love the punchy color palette mixed with layers of neutrals and natural textures all throughout the beach house. The vibe is fun and relaxing too, perfect for the beach setting! The living room is my favorite here–the furniture, mix of patterns, great coastal accessories...what's not to love?! Finish your tour of the home over here!

Susie Ho of Mend














I love pairing turquoise with a rainbow of color...it just makes me so happy! So imagine my delight seeing this cheery Long Beach, California nursery designed by Susie Ho of the boutique design studio Mend, photographed here by Laure Joliet! The daybed is great–perfect for lounging, overnight guests and the babe when she grows up! Love the built-in shelving for children's books, the colorful collection of pillows and cute balloon mobile too! And of course......the two-tone turquoise walls! Head over to Apartment Therapy to read all about the fun space!

Guehne-Made






































Nick and Wendy Guehne of Kansas City-based Guehne-Made are turning heads once again! The gorgeous kitchen was the main focus here, but the talented duo completely transformed this entire home, gutting and redoing the main areas as well as refinishing all the hardwoods and painting every inch of home. What used to be a bedroom is now the fab laundry/mudroom/office–love that space and love the dutch door! The kitchen is my favorite though, it's just doesn't get more beautiful than that! Trust me, the before-n-after photos of this one are not to be missed! You can see those as well as get all the source info right over here! And check out Guehne-Made for even more!

Turquoise Tour of Seabrook, Washington






































I've been wanting to visit Seabrook, Washington for awhile now, so I was thrilled when my friend decided it was the perfect location for her destination wedding! The first thing Chris and I said to each other when we arrived, "This totally reminds me of Seaside!"...and that's not by accident: Seaside, Florida (where we went last fall) was actually the inspiration for this new coastal community located on a bluff overlooking the ocean about 2.5 hours from Seattle. Both Seabrook and Seaside are considered "new urbanist towns" with their walkable, pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods, small lot sizes, access to green space, and sense of community....not to mention cuteness-overload with every single home you see! I got more of a Nantucket vibe in Seabrook, which I'm all for and loved!

Seabrook is a relatively new town, it was only established in 2004, and new construction is still going strong. The town has big plans for its future, with more homes and retail in the works. I can't wait to go back to see how their vision develops and the region around Seabrook changes. Until then it's still a great place to relax and get away from it all! About half of the 250 homes in the town are available to rent (though privately owned) and they are all SO cute...it was hard deciding which one to stay in. Later this week I'll take you on a tour of the place we ended up renting...you'll love it!

I first learned about the town through photographer Tracey Ayton and a photo tour she had on her blog, you definitely need to check that out here and I'm sure you'll fall in love with Seabrook too! And for all you ever wanted to know about Seabrook and tons of photos/videos of the town, visit their website here!
