Fabulous Dream Bathroom!





When I saw this breathtaking master bathroom on Home Bunch, I immediately wished I could be magically transported into the dreamy space. (And not just because our furnace is broken and won't go above 62 degrees and a warm bath would feel amazing right now...) I look at a lot of pretty rooms every day, but surprisingly not that many stir up envy. I have to admit that this one does...in a major way. I WANT this bathroom. I'm pretty sure I NEED this bathroom. (Although my dad will tell you I have a history of confusing those two terms...!) You can see more of this amazing beach home here, but definitely head to Home Bunch because Luciane has an incredible collection of eye candy and inspiration going there!

Have a fantastic weekend you guys!!

Rustic Retreat






I can't remember ever stumbling on a home quite like this one! Featured in the South African magazine Home and photographed by Adriaan Oosthuizen, this amazing Paarl Valley home features a compromise of style between the two owners. He wanted the elements of a rustic farmhouse filled with leather and wood, she wanted femininity. I'm particularly fond of the lighting in every photograph. And that fridge!!! I'd love a week away here to unwind!

Calypso Blue


Designer Hillary Thomas helped create this eclectic bathroom featured in the newly-released issue of Lonny. I cannot get enough of the Benjamin Moore Calypso Blue on the walls here...it's a perfect companion to the white beadboard. Not sure I could live without a mirror above the sink, but the artwork is all very cool. The hand-painted Lulu DK fabric on the window shade and Moravian star light are great touches too, as is the cute starfish! See more of this inspiring home over here!

Sunny Yellow Cottage





Sunshine and summertime today, courtesy of Cottage Life magazine! This tiny cabin located near Sault Ste Marie, Michigan couldn't be any cuter. The owner selected a yellow and green palette to reflect the summer light and fill the rooms with warmth, and used turquoise as the perfect accent. I loved her tip for decorating on a budget: You have to be patient. She has been collecting those cute turquoise striped Carrigaline dishes from Cork, Ireland for more than 10 years...and never pays more than $1 for each one. That's the way I like it!

Dream Workspace


One of things I was most excited about when I moved last year was finally having my own office. I had big dreams for the space...pretty AND efficient, an inspiring space full of color and life. That was 6 months ago. Right off the bat I got a fabulous new floor (thanks Dad!), pretty BM Waterfall walls (thanks Chris!)......and some leftover Ikea furniture from my apartment. No art, no curtains, no door even. So that's my resolution for the new year, fancy up my workspace. This one from MyHomeIdeas would be perfect. They call it the "family control center". I call it a turquoise blogger's dream!
