Kendall Wilkinson









I really enjoyed reading the interview Cristin of Simplified Bee did with San Francisco interior designer Kendall Wilkinson. It was actually a turquoise showhouse room she designed that fueled my inspiration to start this blog so long ago...I'd never seen anything like it before! Since then I've continued to be impressed with her work. Her rooms are all so beautiful and glamorous, but never stuffy. I'm also a tremendous fan of her use of color. Read the inspiring interview on Simplified Bee, and for more of her work, visit Kendall Wilkinson Design & Home.

Since it's Friday again (where do these weeks go?!), it's time to announce: Only 4 weeks left! And believe it or not, one last wedding shower thrown by my awesome family! I can't wait! Happy weekend everyone! :)

Barbara Pervier








It's not just that designer Barbara Pervier likes blue. Her 1830's home located in Salem, MA photographed here by Laura Moss measures only 640 square feet. She chose this particular serene shade to bring the sky in from outside, resulting in a feeling of openness. I'm loving the beautiful crown moldings, and the nod to the sea with her collection of seashells. All so pretty! Visit New England Home to continue the tour!

Thank you so much for all the kind birthday wishes for Chris yesterday, he was so surprised and excited!! And he did love that mountain home!

Happy, Happy Birthday!



Today's room from Colorado Homes and Lifestyles and photographed by Emily Minton Redfield, is dedicated to my handsome fianc√© who is celebrating his birthday!! In a perfect world, my rugged outdoorsman would live in the mountains as a hikemaster, residing (with moi, of course) in light-filled contemporary digs. This Aspen home designed Barbara Mullen of Caroline-Edwards Interior Design would be right up his alley. He's more neutral-happy than I am but readily admits to loving the turquoise. In fact I know he'd love those George Smith chairs...he's got a major thing for tufted furniture. But undoubtedly it's the view and the proximity of a scenic hike that would have him at hello! See more of this sleek, understated mountain home here! And a huge happy birthday to my FH, Chris! ♥

Dusty Rose (ahem, Blush!) and Turquoise



If there wasn't a drop of turquoise in this apartment in Madrid designed by Luis Puerta, I probably wouldn't be a fan. But wow, the addition of our favorite color really spices things up, doesn't it? That turquoise console is gorgeous and I love that fabric on the back of those dining chairs! See more of the home (including a super-chic kitchen and bath) over on Delikatissen!

Landcharm Kitchen






I can almost hear the sighs coming from you guys after seeing this rustic beauty! Another Norwegian delight, this time from the blog Landcharm. For a kitchen filled to the brim with dreamy white, it certainly feels so warm and cozy! Wouldn't a fireplace like that be such a treat?! All of us in Minnesota say yes!!
