Miles Redd + The Winner!





I have to admit I never picked up an issue of Town & Country until Stephen Drucker took over. Not sure what it was like before, but his first issue impressed me. This Atlanta home designed by color genius Miles Redd and photographed by Francesco Lagnese is opulence at its finest. The living room?? The walls are covered in stretched turquoise silk satin. The dressing room? Hand painted de Gournay wallaper. And the breathtaking bedroom floor?? Oscar de la Renta leopard-print carpet. I love the fashion sketches in the bathroom covering the platinum blue Boussac Tarentelle wallpaper too. Oh the other half!

Time to announce the lucky winner of the Candace Rose giveaway!

Tyler of Tyler's Taste Tests!!!

And with that happy news, I'm going to turn off my computer and get ready for my trip to New York! I leave tomorrow morning and will be gone 10 whole days. Yay! I asked some of my favorite bloggers to entertain and inspire us with their favorite turquoise spaces. You'll love it. In addition, you can still check out Everything Turquoise...I have 50 posts scheduled on there! ;)

Shanna LeRoy & Ashley Russel











When I saw these beautiful photographs taken by the talented Shanna LeRoy out of Saratoga Springs, Utah, I almost regretted that I'm going away for Thanksgiving! What a serene environment to celebrate, I just adore all the details. Ashley Russel is the creative force behind what you see here...a true master at the whole trash-to-treasure thing. Check out her blog The Quirky Sophisticate for more of her projects, and check out Shanna's blog here for more fabulous photography!

Wren's Big Girl Bed









If you've been following along, you know how much I've loved the precious nursery belonging to little Wren, the daughter of Holly of Life in a Fun Lane fame. She has created such a darling space, with the most beautiful furniture and soothing colors. I've thoroughly enjoyed seeing Wren's room transform as she's grown a bit older, and now that she has her very own big girl bed, I just had to share! You can see what it used to look like here and here! And for more pics and to see what Holly has to say about it, go here!

Don't forget to enter the Candace Rose giveaway if you haven't yet!

c/o The Maidstone











In just a few more days I'll be on my way to the Hamptons!! I've been obsessing about it and researching for a while now, and one of my favorite discoveries has been c/o The Maidstone, a chic boutique hotel in East Hampton. Unfortunately staying there is out of my blogger's budget, but luckily for us, drooling over their images is free! The Maidstone was purchased a couple years ago by Swedish hotelier Jenny Ljungberg. She infused the hotel with a free-spirited Scandinavian vibe, inspired by the wonderful fabrics of Josef Frank. For more on the design as well as more droolworthy photos, visit The Kitchen Designer. And be sure to check out their official site for more information or reserve a room (lucky duck)!

Candace Rose Giveaway!


I love this saturated space photographed by Magnus Anesund so much. The styling is awesome...the shade of turquoise on the wall next to the blues and yellow makes for such a stunning image!!



Speaking of stunning image, I'm so excited for today's giveaway, courtesy of my friend, fellow blogger, and photographer Candace Rose. I can't believe it, but two years ago today she opened up her etsy shop! To celebrate she is giving one lucky House of Turquoise reader an 8 x 10 photography print tilted "Turquoise Sunflower". As much as I love all of her photography, this one continually remains a favorite. (I actually have it hanging on my office wall and get to enjoy it all day long!) You'll definitely want to check out her work, she has an amazing talent for floral, nature and pet photography. Oh, and her blog is super fun too...one of my daily reads!

To enter:
  • Visit the Candace Rose Etsy shop or ArtFire shop and leave a comment below with your favorite print.
  • Please make sure your email is included in your comment if you don't have a blog!
  • Winner will be randomly selected and announced Friday morning.
Good luck!

Giveaway is now closed. Tyler of Tyler's Taste Tests was the winner!
