I'm sure many of you have seen this brand new art studio and office space of the lovely Laura Trevey, one of the blogosphere's most talented artists! In addition to painting her beautiful watercolors (check out her Etsy store), Laura also maintains two blogs, one for her watercolors, and another titled Bright, Bold, and Beautiful (how can you resist that?!) Back to this great space though...Laura told me that House of Turquoise actually inspired her to paint the room Spring Mint by Benjamin Moore. I love it! I also love that she painted the pegboard the same color. Look at all her beautiful paintings! *sigh* See her painting Summer Breeze that she has displayed on a stand in the last photo? I actually just bought a print of that a couple weeks ago and can't wait to have it displayed in my own home...the colors are breathtaking! For more info on Laura's studio, head over here! Have a great weekend everyone! :)

If there's one thing I miss about having a tv, it's HGTV. I wasn't as hooked on it as some people, but I always stopped when Divine Design with Candice Olson was on. Her transformations always astounded me. She designed both of these bathrooms above, either of which I'd kill to have in my own home! Do you guys watch the show??

This beautiful home in Holly Springs, NC belongs to my reader Jessica C. Lucky for us, it's currently for sale!! How gorgeous is that family room?! Those amazing ceilings with all the light flowing in, the sunny breakfast room, the gorgeous hardwood floors...yeah, I could live with that! I sure hope whoever buys it keeps all that pretty wall color (Rainwashed-6211 by Sherwin Williams)! For lots more photos of the rest of the home and all the details, head over here. It's a steal of a deal!

I am feeling the summer vibe big time today! That first image completely drew me in when I saw it on photographer Kip Dawkins website. It's just so...me. The colors are FABULOUS. Man-oh-man do I love all of that bright and breezy fabric! And rightly so...the image is actually an ad for Trina Turk's line of indoor/outdoor fabric for Schumacher. And I thank Brabourne Farm for finding the middle image from the portfolio of photographer Russell Sadur. Long live turquoise and lime green!
