Mirador Builders + EDI International, Inc








Happy Friday!! I don't often have the opportunity to share homes like this authentic Spanish Colonial Revival designed by EDI International, Inc and built by Jennifer Hamelet of Mirador Builders out of Houston. Jennifer has been designing, building and marketing for over 20 years, and her home is something dreams are made of. Of course I was immediately drawn to the kitchen with its painted cabinets (Green Granite by Pittsburgh Paint) and pops of red. But I know you're going to want to scroll back up and take another look at the concrete tile rug in the office. Jennifer sat down with a box of 20 colors and pulled five that most closely resembled her 115 year old Heriz and Oushak rugs then designed the tiles from templates and had them made in Nicaragua. So cool! SO many other neat details in the home...custom tile everywhere, antique chandeliers and sconces, 300 year-old antique colonial doors, turquoise windows frames...I could go on and on but you can see more for yourself over at Mirador Builders! Oh if you happen to be looking for a home in Houston, this one just happens to be for sale! Go here for more info!

Kathleen DiPaolo








Total turquoise bliss! Designer Kathleen DiPaolo of Pacific Family Homes out of Newport Beach, CA gifted us with this double delight. Two sisters, twins to be exact, have the pleasure of calling these beautiful rooms their own. How drop-dead are the beds Kathleen designed (complete with hidden trundles) using Quadrille's "Pina" fabric?! If they weren't quite enough to make you fall head over heels, then I'm sure the dreamy grasscloth wallcoverings from Phillip Jefferies (Burmuda Hemp in Turquoise) certainly did! I love that she found the lamps and yellow chinoiserie chests on Etsy. The other adorable side tables belonged to the little girl's mother and grandmother. Oh, see in the last photo on the left?? Those are framed casts from one of many daredevil escapades!! Love it!

SFA Design















Nothing says "Something's Gotta Give" more than a blue and white striped rug and comfy slipcovered sofas! SFA Design out of Santa Barbara recently completed this Hamptons estate photographed by Eric Striffler, brimming with beachy blues and greens on a sandy-colored base. They only had 5 short weeks between initial design development and installation, so the team decided to source everything locally. They used local craftsmen to update existing furnishings and fixtures, and scoured shops from Manhattan to Southampton to find the perfect accessories. I love all the coastal pillows and colorful Dash and Albert rugs! To see tons more incredible homes designed by SFA Design, visit their website here!

François Halard



Golden slumbers fill your eyes! This beautiful bedroom photographed by François Halard for Vogue is entirely fit for a queen! I am in love with the stunning fabric draping the bed. The hand-screened Garden Pattern fabric was designed by Sandra Loveland Bragdon for her 41-year-old Hungry Palette shop in Stonington Borough, Connecticut. Imagine waking each morning in such a magnificent cocoon of glorious color!

The Fancy Farm Girl











You know someone creative, fun, and downright feminine was behind this adorable little trailer! Seattle photographer Tiffany Kirchner-Dixon with a super cute blog aptly titled The Fancy Farm Girl received the 1959 trailer nicknamed Audree as a Mother's day gift this year, and began with the mere intention of sprucing it up. Fate wouldn't have it and the project quickly gained momentum. (That happens so easily, doesn't it?) She redid everything from the interior and exterior paint, new lighting, new door knobs and hardware, and accessorized it like no other trailer has seen. Oh how I LOVE it! There are lots of fun vintage finds, but many original items inside too, like the enamel icebox, the 1950's gray speckled flooring and the yummy aqua counter tops. To read all about the mega-transformation and for more great images taken by Tiffany herself, just head here!
