Turquoise & Orange with Tobi Fairley






Gosh you guys, thank you all so much for the kind birthday wishes!! Your comments just made my day. I had a great weekend celebrating, and still have more left to do this week! I love stretching out my birthday! :)

When I first saw these rooms designed by the always-inspiring Tobi Fairley in Traditional Home, it felt nothing short of a fabulous early birthday gift. Photographed by Nancy Nolan, this bedroom and sunroom were part of an eco-friendly charity showhouse in Arkansas. While Tobi has never been shy to pair turquoise with orange, I'm just loving how vibrant and cheery it is here. It's awesome to know she used a mix of new and recycled furnishings (behold the magic of low-VOC paints!) and organic fabrics. I've been drooling over that aqua Rubie Green fabric forever, it's just perfect here on the sofa and draperies! To read all about the rooms, head over here!

I have something you may be interested. It's my beautiful sofa which I found abandoned and rescued :) I think you, of all people, will appreciate it.

My husband and I decided we will be moving this sofa into our bedroom and I will definitely be looking to your blog so see how I can make it work in there.

Keep up the great work!

I know coming to this site I will see things I've never seen before and will be amazed at every time. I just did a post on magazines and how much I love them, I should have included your site as one of my all time favorite online blogs that feels like my favorite magazine.

Yes, girl, S-T-R-E-T-C-H that birthday out! You deserve it!

This is my new favorite color combination -- aqua and coral (with hints of mint-green thrown in). It is perfect for a beach theme. Pure love! -- Kimberly
