Seafoam Hideaway





Straight from the Hamptons, this home featured in September's issue of Traditional Home sure is beautiful. Designed by Ken Gemes and photographed by Tria Giovan, it was the cozy bedroom filled with seafoam (Woodland White by Benjamin Moore) that caught my eye. I love the hand-blocked fabric on the draperies and shams from TylerGraphic, and the aqua upholstered chair and ottoman. The little window seat is so cute too!

Anon- The source says they are "antique hand-tinted lithographs with hand-painted borders" from Forti Fine Prints. Check out their site here!

The construction method in America is unbelievable- I love it so much! The tender blue- a little bit like mint is really great- the curtains are so beautiful- sit in and feel good :-)) could be the slogan of that living room- I never tried blue in the bedroom- but it´s wonderful...
Love- Ines

Hi Erin,
I was so thrilled that you enjoyed the photos I posted yesterday! After all, you create one of my "go to" blogs for inspiration!
Have a wonderful evening. And by the way, thank you for another beautiful post.

Hi Erin, What an interesting array of different textures and prints! And soft, muted colors! Great stuff!!

I've never seen a design so drab. My hotel rooms are better designed (although I do stay in some fab hotels. ; )

H.O.T, you're awesome! Traditional Home and the designer missed the mark.

Because of your great eye for design, I'm thinking about going with a blue ceiling, somewhere... anywhere!

Keep being the EXCITING you!

Hello Erin-I can't endure the guilt any longer. Just had to tell you how much I enjoy your blog. I feel a twinge of excitement each time I scroll down my Favorites list and "click" on "House of Turquoise".
Thank you for brightening my day.
