Happy 4th of July!









Just when I didn't think I could love it any more!! Remember the week-long Dream Home Tour we took a couple of weeks ago?? Since those photos were taken, my reader Cristi and her husband Jeff put up shutters painted the same fab color as the door and the garage, Benjamin Moore's Wythe Blue. Doesn't it look amazing?! Another round of applause to the builder Morgan Hatfield of Hatfield Homes and Cristi's photography at Hiya Papaya! If you missed the tour, check out all five days starting here.

I'm delighted to be a guest blogger today at two fantastic blogs! The one-and-only Tobi Fairley asked me to put together an "All-American Design" themed post for her, in turquoise of course! Then visit me over at the creative haven DIY by Design where I'm sharing a few of my favorite readers' rooms. Come and say hello!



To all of my readers in America, Happy 4th of July!! I hope you have a wonderful, safe holiday weekend! See you on Tuesday!

Susie Hoffmann






Looking at this funky loft photographed by Audrey Hall, you might think it's located in some chic downtown area. The home belonging to interior designer Susie Hoffmann of Envi Design is actually in Bozeman, Montana of all places. She says the area surrounding the converted 1930s flour mill used to be pretty gritty, but is starting to get hipper. "It's kind of like the Brooklyn of Bozeman". She did an awesome job of fusing a kitchen, dining and living rooms, office and even a guest nook into one relatively small space. I love the pops of juicy color everywhere...what a bright and happy home! See more images and read all about it over at Mountain Living!

Cottage Kitchen Makeover






Sometimes the prettiest kitchens are not the biggest or most expensive! Designed and produced by Donna Talley for Better Homes & Gardens, this cute cottage kitchen used to be drab and cramped. The results of the homeowner's renovation make the space so light and cheery, and much more functional. I love the open shelving, it's such a great way to display all of their pretty dinnerware and accessories. The vintage-style pulley fixtures are super cute too! It's the beautiful breakfast nook that is my favorite feature though...it's just so cozy! See lots more photos taken by Bryan McCay and learn great money-saving tips here!

RLH Studio






I immediately bookmarked interior design firm RLH Studio when they won honorable mention in the Show Off Your Schumacher Wallcovering contest (and not just because they are from Minneapolis!) Since then I've seen the winning bathroom above floating around the blogopshere. And for good reason...is it not one of the most gorgeous bathrooms you've ever seen?? Schumacher's Albero Floreale in Aqua wallpaper is incredible, and looks perfect with the paint color on the makeup vanity. The corresponding bedroom is so beautiful too, with more stunning wallcovering. The little girl's room is an absolute dream come true!! And I love the blue and green living room above...so comfy and colorful! There are lots more beautiful rooms I know you'll love over on their website, so check it out!

Cassie of Hi Sugarplum!









Youthful and Sophisticated...talk about a combo that is tough to pull off! Not if you're the DIY genius Cassie of Hi Sugarplum, who recently revealed one heck of a makeover on her blog. I absolutely adore this room, everything about it, and I'm sure her young daughter is overjoyed with her new "big girl" space. She has her own art center and little hidden nook in the closet. What child wouldn't love that?! The wall color (Waterscape by Sherwin Williams) is the perfect background for all the fun color and prints going on. The Parisian themed bedding (Nicole Miller's Fifi Collection) is pretty much the cutest thing ever! What I love most about this room though is that Cassie did a fantastic job chronicling all the DIY projects the room entailed. The fabulous drapes and monogrammed pelmet, the painted bed and highboy, the no-sew pillows, even faux crown molding, and lots of the accessories are all results of Cassie's hard work. You can see tons of photos and read all about each project on Hi Sugarplum!....so much inspiration I could burst!!

I really want to thank you guys sooooo much for the super-sweet comments you left about our wedding photos...it almost felt like our wedding day all over again!! All weekend long they kept rolling in and each one made me so happy!! You guys are the best! :)
