Premier Design in Charleston

I'm back from vacation with this tasty treat designed by Renee Reichlyn of Premier Design and featured in the current issue of Charleston Home + Design Magazine. Who doesn't adore a burst of blue subway tile?! I love the spin on these particular tiles though, with their longer, leaner shape. Did you notice there are two islands here? (I didn't right away, I was too mesmerized by the tile!) I'm loving all the can never have too many drawers. Read all about the space and see more images here!

Our trip to Chicago was incredible. Of course the heat was insane, but that didn't stop us from walking around all day taking everything in. Thanks so much for the suggestions! You guys who mentioned Garrett popcorn...bless your hearts. Our hotel happened to be conveniently located right next to one! ;) Lots of tours, shopping, dining (and more dining) and sleeping in. And to top it all off, the Ray LaMontagne concert was better than we hoped it would be! I can't believe it's the weekend already...gotta love that! Enjoy it everyone!

Urban Grace Interiors

I love our bedroom, I really do, but given the opportunity I'd trade it in immediately for this one designed by Urban Grace Interiors. It's just so restful and serene, I'm sure my dreams would be so much sweeter here! Love those dark floors, pretty walls, and comfy linens. And the dressers...LOVE those!

That's it for my scheduled posts! If things go according to plan, I'll be back from vacation and here with you tomorrow! I hope you enjoyed all the posts while I was away!

Meg Braff

I land upon a lot of coastal-inspired spaces in my search for turquoise rooms, but rarely do I find any as chic as this Palm Beach home photographed by Thibault Jeanson and featured in House Beautiful. It was not a shock to learn it was designed by one of my favorite designers: Meg Braff. Her clever use of color and fresh approach never fails to make my heart skip a beat! Read all about this home and see more great pics over at House Beautiful!

I'm currently still in Chicago, but have one more yummy post lined up for tomorrow! :)

Guest Blogger: Page from Faith's Place


Thank you so much for the opportunity to share my space!! I am an avid fan of "House of Turquoise" and am so excited to be stopping by today!

My name is Paige and my blog is called Faith's Place.

I am the wife to my my 3rd grade sweetheart (yep, that's right, I said 3rd grade) and mother to 2 beautiful little girls! Currently, my husband is deployed to Iraq on a year long tour (14 months, actually). I took this past year to challenge myself to 100 "Deployment Projects" as my coping mechanism to get through this deployment! It has given me a chance to focus on our home and our children, rather than thinking about his looonnnggg deployment!!! As of today, I have 11 projects to finish by the end of the month....when the hubby FINALLY comes home!! YAY!!!

One of my latest deployment projects is my Master Bedroom. I feel that decorating doesn't have to cost a lot of money...working with what you have, or being frugal can also give you wonderful results. I realize that I will never be on the cover of DECOR magazine or Better Homes and Gardens, but I do know that over the last year I have been able to create spaces in our home that reflect our personality and character....a home that I am proud to show off because it's where I have so diligently made my "nest" over the last year!

You can read ALL about my Master Bedroom redo with before pictures by clicking HERE.

So, thank you for taking the time to check out "my space".

Guest Blogger: Annette Tatum "Bohemian Inspired Nurseries"

One of the best things about having a baby is designing a nursery in a special style that is designed both for mother and child. When Minnie Driver asked me to design her Hollywood nursery, she wanted the room to have a "bohemian" style that fit her home decor, but also had special touches of whimsy that made the environment more child-like. From the scalloped edges on the window shades, to the cocoon like netting over the crib, the colors and eclectic collection of furntiure all speak to her personal style. An easy daybed filled with fun pillows for napping and quiet time to the recovered glider chair compete with patchworked textiles. The aqua walls, green accents and pops of pink and orange all dance together in a caravan of color, creating a one of a kind "boho" nursery especially designed for Minnie.

Our new "Bohemian Inspired" Little House Collection introduces a colorful plate of possibilities for your child's room or nursery. Designed to stimulate the senses, we invite parents to travel through exotic color and bring the boho spirit into your child's world. Shop the entire collection here!
