Dunes and Duchess



Don't you guys love showhouses?? They're always so fun, filled with inspiration. This particular library designed by Patricia LaPierre of Greenwich Design Architects was in the Shippan Designer Showhouse. The space was styled by Stacy Kunstel and photographed by Michael Partenio. The talented duo actually started their own company last fall called Dunes and Duchess. They create the most amazing, giant candelabras and lamps in the coolest colors. (You can see more here...love all those photos!) If you happen to be going to the NYIGF next week, stop by and check out some of their new stuff. (And say hi to them for me for me!) Ooh and Stacy is one of the speakers at the Design Bloggers Conference! I am getting so excited for that!

Campagne Décoration








Ladies, your tea is ready!! I thought since you guys loved that French home so much that I shared a couple ago, you might appreciate this one too. Gracing the cover of this month's Campagne Décoration (Country Decoration), the darling space is made for delectable treats, pleasant conversation and a little bit of sunshine. What a magnifique way to spend an afternoon!

Incredible Wooden Bathtub




Have any of you ever seen a wooden bathtub before?! I didn't even know they existed! Inspired by the comfort of an antique armchair and the sweeping sheer of a sailboat, Bath in Wood of Maine has been crafting wooden bathtubs for three years. This particular double bathtub featured in Design New England is made from a deep-sealed Honduran mahogany. Imagine how long the water would stay warm in that! (And what fun kids would have pretending it was a boat!) Oh, and the bead-board wainscoting is painted Benjamin Moore's Silver Marlin. How could I forget! To learn more about these unique wooden tubs, head over here!

Ooh la la!






You just don't see stuff like this here in the States. Straight out of France, this home featured in Campagne Décoration is storybook beautiful. I can't even imagine eating dinner at that dining table, surrounded by the aqua-painted eighteenth century woodwork. Don't even get me started on a soak in that tub! And that armoire is killing me! See more of this glorious home right over here!

Turquoise and Pink Girl's Room







If anyone can prove that good design doesn't always have to cost a fortune, it's the talented Judy of DIY by Design. She recently revealed the transformation of her ten year-old daughter's room, who requested her space have aqua in it. Judy chose Benjamin Moore Whispering Spring for three of the walls, and stenciled the pink wall all by herself! Amazing! In fact, so much of what you see Judy made by herself, in addition to a few great finds from Home Goods, Target or PB Kids. You have to head over to her blog for more images and to read all about this dreamy space!
