Design Bloggers Conference


It should come as no surprise that this clean and light little boy's room is out of Scandinavia. I first saw it on Norske Interiørblogger, but you can check out more of the space on the Norwegian blog Lykke Bo. A side note: I studied Norwegian two years in college, part of that full-time in Oslo. My norsk today?? Ikke så bra. It's a good thing lovely rooms and beautiful photography speak a universal language!

So have you guys all heard about the upcoming Design Bloggers Conference?? It's a two-day conference out in LA at the end of February. So many of our favorite design bloggers are speaking, and even more attending. (You can see the list of both here.) Can you imagine...two whole days entirely focused on design blogging?! Meeting all of our cyber friends?! Networking with some super-talented people?! What a dream come true!!! I've officially decided that I'm attending, so if any of you are as well, please let me know!

I wish you all a wonderful weekend! Stay warm!

Honey Collins








This lovely 1903 Shingle Style house on Massachusetts's North Shore photographed by Michael J. Lee and featured in Design New England is all about the elegance of the Old South. The challenge interior designer Honey Collins faced in decorating this classic New England home was respecting the inherent formality while making it feel warm, exciting and fresh. I love the mix of patterns everywhere, and the perfect combination of subtle and bold color. The "landing room" is brilliant, I'd love to have a space just like it. See more of this beautiful home right on over here!

Hillary Thomas






You guys remember that Calypso Blue bathroom I shared last week?? The design genius behind it and the rooms above is Hillary Thomas. "Go BOLD...not beige!" was her New Year's Resolution this year and I'm thinking she'll have no problem keeping that one. First and foremost, I love that she loves (like I love) pink and turquoise. Her rooms all feel so alive and vibrant, filled with layers, fabulous color and pattern. How fantastic are those blown-up photographs?? (Somehow I doubt photos of my cats would look that cool!) Head on over to her website for lots more colorful, fun spaces!

Turquoise and Cream Kitchen




So simple, but oh so pretty! This delightful kitchen in an early-19th century home located in Berkshire, England was featured in 25 Beautiful Homes. The combination of aqua (Aqua Blue by Neptune) and cream (Calico by Neptune) is so fresh here, very pretty with all the rustic wood. The reclaimed pine flooring is so beautiful, and I just love all the light pouring in from the french doors!
