Incredible Dream Home

You guys aren't going to believe this, but this home actually belongs to one of my readers! Desireé Ashworth owns and designed this breathtaking Provo, Utah home in collaboration with Alice Lane Home Collection. Desireé is passionate about blues and greens, and says that she and her husband are also obsessed with anything French, Swedish or Belgium. She also has her own blog, Décor de Provence, where she posts beautiful images, filled with French and Gustavian decor. I just loved this post here with pictures of her home decorated for Christmas!

The talented photographer behind these images is Ashlee Raubach. The detail and light she is able to capture is incredible! I know this home is beautiful on its own, but Ashlee turned it into a work of art! Ashlee also has a blog, and waiting there are lots more (and bigger, we all love bigger!) images and information on this stunning home. So head here and here to see more!

Hope you enjoyed the photos and hearing about these talented and super-sweet ladies! Also, thanks so much for all your kind comments yesterday (I've never seen so many in my life!)...your support and enthusiasm means the world to me! Have a great weekend everyone! :)

All About Blue with House Beautiful

If you're me and you see a cover like this in your mailbox, you know it's going to be a good day.

Then you read the editor's letter only to find that Stephen Drucker mentions your little old blog?

Now THAT, my friends, is a fantastic day!
Isn't that a hoot?! I can't get over it!

Seriously though, if you like blue/turquoise even a little bit, you're going to drool endlessly over this issue. It's jam-packed with so much eye-candy I can hardly stand it. Not only that, but I know many of you will appreciate the color section where they go over which blue paint colors designers use the most. All those yummy paint swatches are making me crazy to get out of my rental! If you're even thinking about painting, definitely grab this issue.

Last but not least, that stunning cover features a room designed by none other than Tobi Fairley. If that image alone won't entice you to check out this blue issue, I don't know what will! Maybe the fact that her project received a 10-page feature inside?! Here's a sneak peak I took off her blog. I know how much you all love the Marjorie Skouras chandelier!

So thanks for the mention, Stephen Drucker! Rest assured the first thing I'm doing when I visit Paris is heading over to rue Jacob to check out that shop! It sounds truly magical.

Mosaic Heaven

I've posted a picture of this bathroom designed by Jamie Drake from Metropolitan Home's Showtime House a while back, but when I found more (and bigger!) pictures on the photographer Adam Chinitz's website, I couldn't help but share. How drop dead gorgeous is the Sinuous Mosaic tile from Artistic Tile?! *sigh*

Island Style

I am loving every little bit square inch of this island-inspired room that Erin of Elements of Style discovered on House and Home. For starters, I've never laid eyes on any Pine Cone Hill bedding that I don't love. And of course aqua and yellow is an absolute favorite of mine. Not to mention I've always loved the look of mosquito net canopy. AND, aren't the little windows just the cutest too?? I LOVE this room! Summer where are you?! I need a vacation!

One of my favorite things about having this blog is seeing the lovely turquoise rooms that my readers design! You guys are such a creative bunch who seem to love turquoise just as much as I do! I'm hoping that you enjoy looking at "real rooms" as much as I do because I have a lot more to share. Don't you agree that they can provide endless inspiration?! There's nothing like learning how to do things on a budget, finding great products at our favorite stores...or simply finding out what shade of paint someone used! So thanks to the ladies mentioned above for being a part of this first installment of Readers' Turquoise Rooms! Your little ones are a lucky bunch!

If YOU have a turquoise room, I hope you consider sending it to me at! :)
