Cheery Turquoise and Red Kitchen

I can't resist sharing this fun retro kitchen I spotted on The Kitchn! The young owners of this 100 year-old home near downtown Columbus (on East Tulane Road) have spent the last two years working hard on their fixer-upper. They've done all the labor themselves, and if you go check out this gallery you'll see the dramatic difference in the before shots. I love that they chose to preserve some of the original features of the space...the sink was refinished with fresh porcelain enamel and they had the steel cabinets painted a cherry red (and a new plate made for them too!) The glass tile and walnut counters are new though, and look great in the space. In case you're wondering, the walls are painted "Aquatint" from Sherwin-Williams...don't they look fantastic paired with the red?! Head here for more great pics and all the source info f0r the room! And with that, enjoy your weekend everyone! :)

Matteo Thun

I've never seen such beautiful tile! The colors, the mix of patterns, totally out of this world...or at least the US! Featured in Elle Decoration, internationally renowned Italian designer Matteo Thun and his wife Susanne used a mix of designs, including some by Gio Ponti to cover the entire wall of the dining room of his home in Capri. The Murano glass chandelier is extraordinary! You guys do not want to miss the rest of the home, including some of the most amazing views ever! Head here!

Seafoam Hideaway

Straight from the Hamptons, this home featured in September's issue of Traditional Home sure is beautiful. Designed by Ken Gemes and photographed by Tria Giovan, it was the cozy bedroom filled with seafoam (Woodland White by Benjamin Moore) that caught my eye. I love the hand-blocked fabric on the draperies and shams from TylerGraphic, and the aqua upholstered chair and ottoman. The little window seat is so cute too!

Romantic Cottage Bathroom

I love me some rustic charm, and this cottage bathroom doesn't disappoint! The 13' peaked ceiling and exposed support structure both painted white?! Hea-ven-ly. But most of all I love that painted floor (Benjamin Moore - Stormy Monday 2112-50 semigloss). Featured in Canadian House and Home (check out the gallery dedicated to white cottages!) this bathroom was also included in the book Pottery Barn Bathrooms. I haven't looked through it in person, but the teaser images on Amazon were enough to make me add it to my wish list. Hello, 87 used & new from $1.48!

Caldwell Flake

Blueprint Bliss and Room Remix have both recently featured some of the stunning work of Lisa Flake and Mary Ruth Caldwell, the mother/daughter team of of Caldwell Flake. However there is nothing like a tour of their portfolio. So many bold vibrant rooms, so many soothing neutral spaces, ALL completely droolworthy. Part of their philosophy is to compose visual anecdotes that are all at once classic, curious and calming, which is definitely apparent in these examples. Do head over to their site though, you won't be sorry!
