Turquoise and Purple

Ideal Home
When I saw Cameron Diaz at the Costume Institute Gala back in 2007 sporting a stunning purple dress paired with a gorgeous turquoise necklace and earrings, I practically started drooling. (Go look at a picture of her here....totally fab, no?) Purple and Turquoise? I had never considered it before then. Now every time I see a room with the colors, I automatically think back to her, and love the combo even more. And if you see me running around in a purple top or dress, wearing one of my many turquoise accessories, you'll know why!

Janet Lohman

These pretty bedrooms were all designed by Janet Lohman. The palettes are so peaceful and calming. I'm not usually a big fan of upholstered headboards, but these I'm loving, especially in the first image with the matching comfy sofa. I love the lighting in the room with the matching twin beds. What a great guestroom!

Caitlin Moran

I am crazy about the color in this Cow Hollow Residence designed by Caitlin Moran and photographed by Kathryn MacDonald. Isn't that yellow great with the teal?! And what a fun gallery wall outside the bedroom...I love it with the wallpaper and teal trim. Caitlin co-owns Found, a shop full of 'rediscovered objects' located in San Francisco. I have to have this desk!

White + Turquoise = LOVE

I spotted this image on Home Sweet Home and it took my breath away. How could I resist the bursts of turquoise against the simple white background? And the symmetry?? I do love symmetry. Are those little teeny tiny drawers on the nightstands??

Idea House on the Gulf Coast of Texas

A lot of these images from the Southern Living 2009 Texas Idea House have been floating around blogland, but I had to share this space designed by Tracery Interiors here too! I can't get enough of the orange and aqua! What a fun, cheery combo it is. In general though I just love all the patterns and colors used in this beach retreat. So many more rooms to check out, so pop over here next!
