And lastly, this stunning 12' turquoise leather Chesterfield below was part of the Soho House’s Oscars House in a room designed by George Smith partnered with The Rug Company. Luckily for us, it's now for sale through the Los Angeles showroom of George Smith Furniture and Fabrics! Isn't it a beauty?!

About a year ago I was meandering through the Room and Board Outlet (we're very fortunate here in Minneapolis to have the only one!) Among all the discounted treasures was the most gorgeous turquoise velvet sofa. *gasp* I stared at it, sat on it, stared at it, sat on it....you get the picture. It was wasn't cheap (although a good price for R&B), but I was more worried about where I'd put the thing. Honestly though I wondered if a turquoise velvet sofa was really practical. I finally concluded it probably wasn't and walked away sad and empty-handed. Today the answer is definitively YES, it's highly practical! I'd snatch that baby up in a heartbeat!

Have a great weekend everyone! :)

Jo Rabaut

Here is a sneak peak into the rest of the home with the Kitchen of the Year I posted about on Tuesday. You can see how the Atlanta-based designer Jo Rabaut carried that gorgeous blue throughout the home. I especially love the spacious laundry room...those drying racks are great. I never have enough space to dry my clothes! To see more images from this Garden Hills residence (including a particularly envy-inducing closet and master bath), check out the portfolio of Rabaut Design Associates!

Edit: Jo Rabaut was kind enough to provide me with the paint information. The kitchen and laundry wall colors are Sherwin Williams SW 6211 Rainwashed.

Cheerful Living

The renter of this home featured in Connecticut Cottages and Gardens wanted a fun, positive vibe for a new chapter in her life. Interior designer Janet Hiltz of Healing Barsanti successfully created something sophisticated, cutting edge and feminine for her. I love the big, bold prints and bright colors against the more traditional wall colors that were required to remain. That turquoise and pink fabric by Quadrille is fab-u-lous!! A neat story goes along with the home...check it out here!

Kitchen of the Year

Hold onto your horses, this kitchen is a true standout! Megan of A Life's Design shared it and another winner of the 2010 Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles Kitchen of the Year Contest. Obviously this beauty designed by Jo Rabaut was MY personal favorite. So much space, ample storage, a dreamy color palette...the stuff dreams are made of! I never knew I needed a butler pantry (or a double trough sink)....but I'd LOVE to have this one! Head over here to read all about this serene kitchen of the year!

Effervescent Bathroom

My favorite thing about this bathroom designed by Molly Frey is the Effervescent Chandelier from Anthropologie. Sadly, it's not for sale anymore, but oh how I lusted over it! So neat to see it in a real room. And what a great bathroom too. Love that tile, and how the sinks are on opposite walls. So balanced and symmetric! And the pretty doors?? How fabulous would it be to open them up while drying your hair or doing your makeup. My bathroom always gets so hot!
