Molly Frey Design (& my bedroom!)














Feel like taking a mini-vacation to a friend's coastal home?? Just head over to the portfolio of Molly Frey Design! Need some inspiration or ideas?? She also has a really cool blog waiting for you too. You might recognize some of Molly's work...she's responsible for that "effervescent bathroom" you all loved, as well as the stunning "heavenly kitchen" I posted about back in June. I was excited to learn that Molly is from Marblehead, MA, a charming little coastal town where my cousin and his family live. I've never been, but have been dying to go there for a visit!

Lastly, you guys have to head over to the blog belonging to Emily A. Clark...all week she's been posting bedrooms that belong to some of our favorite bloggers. I'm thrilled that Emily asked me to participate! So if you want to see where I rest my head, head over here today...let me know what you think! :)

Have a great weekend everyone!

Sleek & Shiny Kitchen



I am digging the icy blue glass backsplash in this cool kitchen that Cristin of Simplified Bee spotted on Ideal Home. I finally watched Julie and Julia, and can imagine myself now more than ever cooking away in a kitchen like this! I'm sure I'd mess it up pretty quickly, but I'd just melt with delight under that skylight! The light just bounces around everywhere...I love it!

Tobi Fairley

If you've seen this month's House Beautiful, you've surely drooled over this home in Fayetteville, Arkansas designed by Tobi Fairley. I must share it here for those of you yet to see it (and for my own collection, of course!) I love the glamour of it all. But the living room just takes the cake. All that blue!!!! I honestly can't pick my favorite feature...the furniture, the walls, that glorious rug... it's all incredible. I also appreciated what Tobi said..."I wanted to wrap the living room in layers of pale blue tones without a lot of contrast. If you use color devoid of contrast, it becomes almost like a neutral." Very good to know! :)

Rod Mickley

I was so excited when photographer Michael Partenio left a comment on the post I did featuring his photograph of a beautiful dining room. He graciously informed me that the genius behind the room was Rod Mickley, a designer out of Vero Beach, Florida. I checked out his portfolio and was pleased to find so many pretty rooms, including these romantic bedrooms above! All just so beautiful!

Jodi's Beachy Bedroom





This beautiful beachy bedroom belongs to my lovely reader Jodi, who lives in Taylor, MI. We've been exchanging emails since last fall when she was in the process of redecorating this room. Now it's all done! Isn't is just a total escape?! Jodi was inspired when she took a trip to the Caribbean and saw the amazing water (the photographs above her bed were actually from her trip). Don't you adore those chests she found at Homegoods? She found the cute lamps there too. Gotta love HomeGoods! The turquoise glass vase and beachy mirror is from The Christmas Tree Store...wish we had one of those in MN! Lastly that gorgeous shade of aqua on the wall is Tidewater by Sherwin Williams. She says it's a bit more vibrant in person. Either way, I LOVE it! Thanks so much for sharing your room with us, Jodi!
