Wren's Reno and Giveaway Winner!

You may recognize this beautiful nursery from a long time ago, it's one of my all-time favorites. But Holly of Life in the Fun Lane has made some changes since I first shared Wren's room, and I thought they were so cute I had to share. I just loved all the white, with the beautiful dark floors and touches of turquoise, but they've acquired some colorful fun pieces that bring more life into the space. Isn't that antique hand-painted cabinet incredible?! Holly first spotted it for $1100 but a year later scooped it up for only $140! What a steal! Read all about the room here!

And now it's time to announce the winner of the Breakfast at Tiffany's Decoupage Tray from Paris Hotel Boutique! *drumroll please* #183

Julie Susann

Congrats to her! And a huge thank you to Lynn for sponsoring this giveaway! And everyone else, don't worry...this was so fun I can't wait to do my next. (It's already in the works, and of course, it's turquoise!) With that, I hope everyone has a fun-filled weekend!

I Adore Painted Floors!

*sigh* I love painted floors (even green ones)! Hirshfield's Color Club recently had a post dedicated to painted floors with some really cool examples. This first one above from Sunny Goode was my favorite...I'm all about bold color and patterns! So fun! Speaking of painted floors, I had to include this kitchen from High-Heeled Foot in the Door. Camila just finished painting her floor and said it was one of the easiest projects she'd ever done...and it cost only $50! Read her awesome DIY tutorial here!

Lastly, don't forget this is the last day to enter my giveaway for the Breakfast at Tiffany's Decoupage Tray from Paris Hotel Boutique! Head over here for that!

Cabo San Lucas Hacienda

And we're off in Cabo San Lucas today! This hacienda designed by Marshall Watson and photographed by Eugenio Perches is all I could dream up and then more. I'm drooling all over my keyboard after seeing these bedrooms...the colors & patterns in the fabrics, the lighting, the furniture...oh my goodness! I especially love that pink and turquoise bedroom, it's so fun and girly! You definitely don't want to miss the other images of this home, so head over here!

Timothy Mather

I know you've seen (and loved) this incredible kitchen with the painted ceiling, but I wanted to make sure you see more work from the mind behind it! Timothy Mather of TM Design Ltd was born in England, and educated in Zimbabwe and Canada. He spent 10 years in a successful fashion career before he continued his education in interior design. I can't get enough of the punchy green and turquoise going on in the first room, those drapes are my favorite! But that kitchen...I could look at it all day long! See more of his work here (make sure to check out the new stuff!)
