Lucas Studio









I felt like I stumbled upon a gem when I discovered Lucas Studio and the rooms they designed for the Stately Homes by the Sea Showhouse (and photographed by the talented John Bessler.) That nursery is fab-u-lous. I didn't even realize it was a nursery until I saw the crib and rocking horse! Is that daybed not stuff dreams are made of?! That fabric!! I also included images from the living room. I'm normally a fan of bright colors, but I love this room. That window seat is calling my name! To learn more about these spaces, check out Stylebeat. Have yourselves a fantastic weekend!

Dreamy Blue Cabinet




Another incredible cupboard this week, courtesy of the lovely Maria of Dreamy Whites. It's a total show-stopper in that otherwise white room. I can't think of a better way to show-off her fantastic collection of antique jars, pitchers and grain sacks! The chicken wire is so perfect too! The antique cabinet was actually this color when she bought it, but one side of it wasn't painted so she had it color matched. I love that she painted the inside a subtle gray...I love blue and gray! To see lots more pictures and to learn the paint colors, head over to Dreamy Whites!

Sally Denning


I just love this photo and the peek into the bedroom styled by Sally Denning, former Style Director of Ideal Home magazine. Boy do those colors pop on that all-white canvas. I wish I could fill my home with white floors like this. I'm sure it would look this clean...um...try never, due to the dog. But I can dream! Love the b&w cat too...that's my kind of styling!

Glitz and Glamour Galore





This chic foyer designed by Kelley Proxmire for The Washington Design Center's 2010 Design House is incredible! Kelley was inspired by a pair of turquoise vases she discovered at the closing sale of Charlotte Moss's shop in NYC. For her “Glitz and Glamour Galore” Foyer, Kelley envisioned the space as the Park Avenue home of a New York socialite, and a backdrop for big entertaining. How cool is that David Hicks-inspired octagonal pattern painted on the bamboo floor?? Read more about this fabulous room here!

Rustic Spanish Kitchen

We're taking a mini-vacation to Spain today! My heart skipped a beat when I spotted this rustic kitchen on Mi Casa Revista. The incredible beams, and the distressed aqua cabinets and table against all the coral...simply beautiful! And speaking of Spain, congrats on winning the World Cup! So exciting!
