How utterly fabulous is the bed in this room designed by Phoebe Howard?! Her work is incredible; I love looking at her website over and over again. I've never spent any time down south, but when I do, I NEED to hit up her stores Mrs. Howard and Max & Company. Have any of you ever been? Are they as dreamy as I imagine? Tell me all!

Pretty pretty pretty!! Atlanta designer Mimi Williams wanted to have a "beach girl" vibe in this landlocked house, as the owner of the house spent her summers as a child at the beach on Tybee Island where she developed a love of the beach and various shades of turquoise. (I wish I had that excuse!) I love those turquoise leather neoclassical side chairs and all the sea-colored pottery. You can read about this home in Traditional Home, and see more of Mimi's work and shop through her nice selection of antiques here.

This luxurious master bedroom and bathroom come from the Southern Living 2009 Georgia Idea House. The spa-like bathroom ranks right up there as an all-time favorite for me. It's so dreamy with the aqua grasscloth wall coverings, the walnut stained floors, pedestal tub and the mosaic sea-glass tile in the shower. (To get a complete video tour of the bathroom with the designer Mallory Mathison, just head right over here.) I love the aqua combined with the touches of red in the bedroom...the look is so sophisticated. And how cool to have a coffee bar just steps away from the bed...definitely an amenity I could get used to!

The portfolio of photographer Burcu Avsar is a true feast for the eyes (especially the beautiful still-life photographs...seriously...check those out here). These rooms are just so pretty too. I am completely drooling over those round pillows in the first image! And what a cute sitting area in that coastal blue bedroom. I can easily imagine some girls having a grand time gabbing away there!

This stairwell in a home designed by Muriel Brandolini is so lovely and unique. I've never seen so many types of paper lanterns! The colors of the lanterns and pillows look great against the pretty wall color. And I LOVE the painted steps! What a cozy little place to sit back with a magazine!
