Calm and Cool

I am loving the fresh and serene vibe that I'm getting from these two images! (First room from Traditional Home, second from Canadian House & Home.) I am really needing this dose of calmness today...I'm so nervous! This afternoon I'm flying down to Kansas City to meet the nice folks over at Hallmark, then tomorrow morning I'm giving their creative division a presentation all about turquoise (and my blogs, of course). What an honor to be asked to talk about my two favorite things! And hopefully we'll have some converts to our favorite color! :)

I'm in love with both of those rooms! Love the shell collection against the blue walls and love the light and airy bedroom. I'm saving them for my design inspiration file.

Erin, I just have to say how much I love your blog (and all of your color resource websites.)

I, too, love all shades of blue, and my bedroom is a member of the "chocolate blues" family - walls are BM's Palladian Blue and linens are brown and white.

Traveling mercies and good luck on your presentation!

You always give me such inspiration with the beautiful pictures, althought I don't have the beautiful shelves that the shells are on I do have a blue stepback cupboard that they would look great on.

Good luck with Hallmark...I'll be waiting to hear how it goes, you will do just wonderfully!

Good luck today! You've earned it!

That first room is unbelievable. The little details on the bottom of the sofa are gorgeous.

Hi, Lovely-

don´t be nervous- you are such a charming and wondeful person and I am sure- all people will love you :-)

I like both rooms! A silent place to be...
and I like the sofa in front of the window- I know, that usual in America- here not - and I really love that!

Hugs and kisses and many angels around you, to keep you calm and give you energy, you need :-))

Hugs- Ines

ps- I wondered, how it is in Feng Shui with so much blue in the house... Did you ever thought about that?
