Valentine's Day Inspiration



Neza Cesar
I hope you don't mind the addition of non-design related photographs here, but I had some of these yummy images bookmarked and felt this would be a great time to share them! There's not much I love more than turquoise being paired with red....but throw a little chocolate into the mix and I'm in huge trouble! I hope everyone has a très romantique Valentine's weekend!

Sweet and Spicy

I saw the first image on Ada & Darcy long ago, but was reminded of it when I recently saw the second on Material Girls. I just love the bold, vibrant colors and fun use of wallpaper. I can't imagine being in a bad mood in either of the homes!

Luxurious Guestroom




When I saw the first picture above on The Glam Lamb, I thought I recognized that Cole & Son wallpaper from the post I did on gold and turquoise. Sure enough that desk area image was in the collection, and I remembered a bunch of you liked it. So here's the whole room that was featured in Homes & Garden! Personally I don't think I could have this as my bedroom, but it's supposed to be a guestroom....and I say it makes for a pretty lavish getaway!

Bonesteel Trout Hall








I was so pleased to learn about the Southern California interior design firm Bonesteel Trout Hall from Ashlina of Secrets of Domestic Bliss. Apparently their projects have been in a bunch of our favorite magazines...and I can see why just from these images! What I love about these in particular is that the color is more of an accessory to the rooms. Though there is a lot of turquoise floating around, you still get a very natural, neutral vibe. Love all that stone! (I wonder how many posts I can do in one week with that chandelier?!)

On a personal note, I want to say a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my dad! He's been such a huge supporter and fan of this blog (and always wears the turquoise shirts I buy for him!) Here's a picture from Sunday (yes, he's sporting the sweater I got him for Christmas!)

Happy Birthday, Dad!

John Willey




















Perusing the portfolio of designer John Willey is like taking in a breath of fresh spring air! (Spring?? Ha! Minneapolis is expecting 8-12 inches of new snow!) I've shown part of this Nantucket home that was also featured in House Beautiful before (maybe you remember the very lovely aqua and orange room here) and of course that chandy from my chandelier post, but the rest of the home is equally as crisp and refreshing! Sun and sky...that's what I'm talking about!!
