After seeing Meghan's amazing painted turquoise floor last week, I was determined to paint the floor in my new porch too. Now of course, after doing this post, I'm convinced the ceiling needs to be painted too. Maybe in EVERY room! Ha! As you can see from above, it's not just for front porches anymore. (Do you know why the paint of choice for many porches across the country is blue? Read about it here.) No matter the room, I adore the way it looks. So now I need to know...have any of you kicked it up a notch and painted your ceiling something other than white?? Blue perhaps?? ;) Have a great weekend everyone!

Perfect Weekend Retreat







What a dreamy escape! I've shared the bedroom nook a long time ago on here, but the rest of this showcase cabin created by Country Home for the 2007 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show is just too cute! A lot of charm and function is packed into the 545 square feet, but my favorite feature is still that Scandinavian-inspired bed alcove. Ok maybe that claw-foot tub too! Oh and the blue sink with the pair of sconces designed by Erin Adams! Read all about this home here!

Meet Seleta




If you guys don't already follow Simply Seleta, you should start. Seleta is a mother of 4, with fantastic sense of style (and the cutest kids and animals ever). I promise you'll love all of her stories and the inspirational images she shares, especially the photos of her home. Take her foyer above with a new facelift...isn't it perfection? She designed the cabinet herself, and had it built when they were redoing their kitchen. It's painted Benjamin Moore Wythe Blue (with heavy distressing). The accessories add a ton of personality and organization too (you can read all about them on her blog here). I also included her laundry room, because the curtain fabric (China Seas leopard pattern) is fab-fab-fabulous!

Swedish Bliss








When Kellie of Ada and Darcy posted the first photo yesterday, I crossed my fingers there'd be even more goodies behind her link. Oh boy were there...talk about a total smorgasbord of delight!! My heart can't handle this! The post at the blog Avolli was actually titled "Turquoise" (how about that for luck?!) Tricia found these images of a Stockholm apartment where the designer with a love for India combined her passions to create a unique take on Swedish design. I seriously cannot get enough! That armoire?! "I die".

Wendi Young






After learning about Wendi Young Design over at Desire to Inspire, I immediately headed over to her website to take a look at her portfolio. It blew me away...I love her California-cool style! All the rooms are filled with so many amazing details, you really get a sense that they are real homes with stories and life! You have to check out her portfolio because there are some AMAZING outdoor rooms you'll love!
