If there's one project on the top of our list, it's to tile our living room fireplace. There's not a prettier focal point than glistening, sparkling glass tile all lit up by fire. Oh wait! If the tile is turquoise, then it's prettier! ;)

Time to announce the lucky winner of the "Birds on a Wire" watercolor giveaway from Laura Trevey! Lucky number 53, who just knew she was going to win:
Susie
Susie, please email me with your address! And with that, I wish you all a great weekend. I'm taking off shortly to go camping up by Lake Superior...it's looking to be a little chilly up there!

Cool in the Kitchen

A cook's dream come true! Ok, even a person who just likes to bake the occasional batch of cookies dream come true (that'd be moi)! This kitchen from the October issue of Homes & Gardens and designed by Toni Silver at Mark Wilkinson Furniture really stores it all in style. I'd love to have a walk-in pantry to hide all my stuff. And the mix of open shelving looks great too, as does the purple on the lower cabinets. But seriously people...the backsplash...the color on that tile is droolworthy!

There's still time to enter the giveaway for your own original Laura Trevey watercolor painting!

Soho House Berlin






Today we're in Germany at the decadent Soho House Berlin, designed by Susie Atkinson. The 40-room boutique hotel is located in an old department store building, which was seized to be the home of the Hitler Youth base during WWII, and later the headquarters of the East Germany Communist Party. Talk about a colorful past! I'm loving the herringbone parquet floors and all that velvet. The headboards are so grand! And what about the spectacular event space, The Politb├╝ro?! Holy mackerel! Promise me if you ever have a party here, I'm invited!

Bright Bold & Beautiful Giveaway!


I'm loving this eclectic boy's room I found in the October issue of Marie Claire Maison photographed by Nicolas Matheus. The bedroom belongs to the son of Tracy Rushmere, a South African designer who created Shine Shine, a line of contemporary African commemorative cloths that includes the whimsical fabric on the headboard above. So fun!

Giveaway Time!

I'm absolutely thrilled about this giveaway courtesy of Laura Trevey, artist and blogger extraordinaire! So many of you already know and love her work and blog (and her turquoise studio!) which is why I'm so excited that she painted "Birds on a Wire", a brilliant original watercolor painting that measures 5" x 11.5"--just for you guys! Don't you love the colors and those plump little birds?! Additionally, Laura is offering a 15% discount, good through the month of October. (Just contact her for details.) Although this painting is exclusive and won't be available for purchase, I know you guys will love her "Winter Wonderland" that is being featured today on my Just Blue & Green blog. Or you can copy me and get your very own "Summer Breeze"...the colors are perfection!
