Urban Grace Interiors











I've been following the blog belonging to Erika of Urban Grace Interiors for a long time, but never did it occur to me to check out her portfolio. Oh the goodies I found! Did you recognize that kitchen with the lovely blue island from the March issue of Coastal Living? I love how she used blue cabinet knobs too. (You can see more of that Coastal Living feature here on her blog.) And I just can't get enough of that room in the first and last image! That floor is TDF, and I love the fans and light fixtures. I imagine a ton of fun goes down in that space! And with that, I hope you all have a ton of fun this weekend! ;)

Seaside Getaway



After seeing this living room on Inspiration for Decoration, I headed over to ILEX Construction to learn more about the amazing seaside getaway. I immediately thought Brooke Steuart after I saw that 2nd image. Remember the stairway in her beach home? Turns out she's the one that designed this home too. The tile on that fireplace is breathtaking...makes me want to go for a dip! I'm really digging the whitewashed hardwood floors too. So pretty!

DIY Turquoise Headboard


I am in love this DIY headboard belonging to Rebecca Domin and Chris Musina of Toronto. Their home was declared a winner with "Best Use of Colour" in Canadian House and Home's 2010 design contest. The turquoise sure does stand out against the rest of the minimalist decor! Isn't that Designers Guild fabric is so yummy?!

Beloved Rainwashed








Thank you SO MUCH everyone for your great comments yesterday with all your favorite turquoise paint! I'm so excited to have all of your recommendations. I appreciate it, as does everyone else! If you ever think of any more, feel free to comment again!

With that being said, I'm sure many of you will love these two rooms designed by Abbe Fenimore that she featured on her Studioten25's Blog. Both rooms are painted "Rainwashed" by Sherwin Williams, a color that so many of you adore. I can see why...it's truly a beautiful color! And how about that super-cute colorful dog artwork on the walls from my favorite SugarBoo Designs! Love that too! To see more of this beautiful bedroom & bath, head over here!

I'm constantly asked what my go-to paint colors are, and it's so hard to say because I actually have no experience painting...the definite disadvantage to renting! It's beyond me why I didn't think to do this sooner, as in YEARS ago, but better late than never. I need your help! In the comments, I'd love it if you could share your favorite turquoise-ish paint colors. Bonus points if you link to images either from your home, or anywhere else you've seen it used!

My loyal reader Mustang got us started:
  • True Turquoise by Glidden
  • Cool Aqua and Poolside Blue by Benjamin Moore
  • Aqua Chiffon by Olympic Paint
  • Nifty Turquoise by Sherwin Williams
  • Beach Sparkle by Valspar
If you don't have a personal favorite, tell me which paint color from the pictures above you like best!

Thanks you guys, I can't wait to hear what you have to say...this is going to be awesome! :)
