Diamond Baratta

Ok so I'm pretty sure that most of us wouldn't want to actually live in this colorful Captiva Island home designed by Diamond Baratta and featured in Florida Design magazine with photography by Brantley Photography, but you have to admit, it's soooo much fun to look at! (And I'm sure we'd all take a room here or there, no?) Such a treat for the eyes...all that fearless, vibrant color, all that turquoise! I don't even know what I love best, maybe the kitchen with the funky pendants and turquoise backsplash. Or the family room with that fabulous “paisley gone wild” carpet. Or the loggia filled with turquoise cushions and the insane view of the Gulf of Mexico. Ok so maybe I would want to live here. If you're digging this scene, you have to check out this post I did last year on Diamond Baratta, and also their portfolio here! Enjoy your weekend everyone!!!

Lustrous Seafoam Bathroom

Ooooh do I ever love this room!!! This luxurious master bath from the Hamptons Cottages & Gardens 2006 Idea House was designed Mabley Handler Interior Design. I love all the iridescent seafoam green subway tiles in the two different sizes and slightly different shades, and the mosaic floor tile designed in a beautiful wave pattern....just perfect for its Hampton's location! The cozy nook enclosing the fabulous slipper tub is the real show-stopper here though. I wouldn't mind lazing away in there!

Retro Lake Cottage in Maine

Sweet Stephanie of the blog Royal T Designs (and Dockside Dogs, the cutest little dog boutique ever) was just up in Maine visiting the most adorable cottage I've ever laid eyes on. The little lake home belongs to her aunt and uncle who completely renovated the space themselves. She said before they got their hands on it it was a total mess of a shack. They tore it down to just the beams, then collected all the awesome original 50's appliances, dishes, flooring, countertops, cabinets, etc. They also kept all of the original furniture and reupholstered it...turquoise! A huge thank you to Stephanie for taking all these fab photos and sharing them with us!

Key West Kitchen

I was so excited to spot this cheery kitchen photographed by Tria Giovan on MyHomeIdeas. I'm still so obsessed with yellow and turquoise! Can you imagine how blah this room would be if the cabinets weren't painted that pretty aqua?? I love the open shelves too, what a great way to display that colorful collection of dishware. Cute cute cute!

Valerie Onor

I first learned of interior designer Valerie Onor in Schumacher's blog where they featured her work in the Mansions and Millionaires showhouse which earned her the title of "Designer of the Year 2009". I was immediately hooked, and went on to her website only to discover it filled with my favorite color. (Not just these gorgeous rooms, but her actual site too!) It's obvious going through her portfolio that she loves color, and classic designs that combine beautiful fabrics, artwork and furnishings. All so elegant, but comfortable at the same time. Definitely head over to her site next for more fabulous images!
