Elizabeth Elsey








You would have to swear this gorgeous home featured in Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles and photographed by Mali Azima was the achievement of a renowned designer. Well I was surprised to learn on Verdigris Vie that it was designed entirely by the homeowner, Elizabeth Elsey, a nurse for over 20 years. Not surprisingly, however, is that she is inspired by all the colors of the beach...especially all spectrums of blue, from the water to the sky. Soul sister all the way! I'm just loving the gorgeous dining room. (Walls: Farrow & Ball Oval Room Blue over Farrow & Ball Light Blue in custom strié finish. Trim: Benjamin Moore Bavarian Cream.) And the custom hand-painted screen by Raymond Goins is stuff my dreams are made of!! Read all about the home and see more beautiful images over here!

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend!! Let the summer begin!! :)

Simple and Sweet


Less really is more in these two bedrooms featured in Interiores magazine out of Spain. Nothing takes a room from so-so to sensational better than a little turquoise! That bed in the first picture is incredible....I love it! And how fantastic would it be to have a large sliding glass door like in the second? See more where this came from here!

Retro Swedish Kitchen



After being submersed in turquoise and pink the last few months (our wedding colors), it sure is nice to revisit my first love: turquoise and red. There's no better place to sport this cheery combo than in a vintage-inspired kitchen. I've always thought a checkerboard floor would be so fun! How cool is that old vending machine?? I love that this kitchen is in Sweden too, not America as you would first think. See the rest of this home over on Hus & Hem!

Amazing Grace in Turks & Caicos










I know we barely just got back from our honeymoon, but there's something about taking a trip that just makes you want to go on another one! I certainly wouldn't mind spending my next vacation in Turks & Caicos at this luxury villa named Amazing Grace. The 9,000 square foot private escape is set on 600 secluded feet of white sand beachfront. 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms...I'm thinking a mini turquoise-lovers convention. If anyone could truly appreciate those beautiful shutters, it's us! Not to mention the tastefully decorated interiors, the crystal clear pool and the lovely terrace looking over the sparkling turquoise ocean. Read all about this fab villa here - including rates that I won't share here...day dreaming is too much fun!

Dreamy Hallway and Fun News!!!


It was instant love when I spotted this hall designed by Celerie Kemble over at theLENNOXX! Linda's post might have been all about shadow box molding, but it was the gorgeous wallcovering that really grabbed my attention. Ok really, to be honest, it was the adorable pup. Look at him just staring up at us....can you handle it?!

Well I can't. And Chris can't either. Because this weekend we happened to bring home our very own new little bulldog!! We've been thinking of names for a week, and yesterday after having her around for 24 hours it just hit us. She's Gertie (y'know, short for Gertrude). And she is just the sweetest little lady. I've never had a puppy before, so this is all very exciting! Now I just have to convince my cats....
Hi guys!
