Tucker & Marks Guestroom & Chi-Town Bound!





I've long been admiring this guestroom designed by Suzanne Tucker and the staff of Tucker & Marks for the 2010 Elle Decor Designer Showhouse. I love everything, and I mean EVERYTHING about this space! Suzanne's own Hatley fabric is used here as wallcovering and I absolutely adore it. That faux coral mirror is so cool too! And the hand-carved beds...*sigh*....they are truly the show-stoppers here. Designer Katie Denham had a fantastic post dedicated to this beautiful room on her blog KatieDid, including the neat story behind those incredible beds! All you want to know and more eye candy waits for you here!

I'm super excited because tomorrow we're leaving to visit one of my favorite cities: Chicago! You'll love this...for a wedding present Chris surprised me with plane tickets, hotel reservations and concert tickets for us to see Ray LaMontagne play in Millennium Park (check out that bandshell!) His music, as well as Chicago, are both very sentimental to us...so it's going to be great! If anyone has any sight-seeing, dining or shopping recommendations, we'd love to hear!

I'll be back towards the end of next week, but keep stopping by because there will be posts in my absence! Enjoy your weekend!!!

Alexandra Angle











It's no secret I'm such a fan of Swedish interiors, which is why I was immediately drawn to this home designed by Alexandra Angle and photographed by Victoria Pearson! Located in Venice, California and featured in House Beautiful, the light, bright and cheery home is filled with so many fresh, springy colors. I feel renewed just looking at them! I'm especially loving that last cozy reading nook...the mix of colors and patterns is perfect! To read all about this happy home and for more pics, head here!

New Zealand Coastal Cottage







This 430 sq ft home photographed by Paul McCredie and featured in NZ House & Garden seems downright spacious with its awe-inspiring Marlborough Sounds view! The waterside cottage started out as a weekend home for a New Zealand couple, but after only a year they ended up living there full-time. In order to maintain harmony in their small space, they've created a few rules to live by: anything that comes in has to be second-hand, made by them, bought from Trade Aid or their local gallery..."or so wonderful it is an exception to the rules!" (I don't know about you, but that last one never really works for me!)

BHDM Design







This Westfield, NJ home designed by New York-based duo Brian Humphrey and Dan Mazzarini of BHDM Design is all about the sun and the sand!!! I wouldn't mind kickin' my feet up and spending my summer here that's for sure. I think my favorite is that first image of the mudroom...I love that corner bench and split door! Not to mention the perfectly aqua-hued walls! See more of the home and other very cool interiors over at the BHDM website!
