Workshop/APD + Kathryn Forest Design















Happy Friday everyone! Have I ever told you guys how much I love Nantucket?! Oh yes, yes I have! The eye candy you see above is actually a complex of six shingle homes designed by Workshop/APD with blissful beachy interiors by Kathryn Forest Design. Pretty much the perfect Nantucket getaway! I love how all the spaces feel like a cozy cottage, but still have all the modern amenities. Such serene sand and sky colors too, with great natural textures, and the perfect pops of turquoise! You can see more photos by Jeffrey Allen and Terry Pommett right on over here!

Debra Lynn Henno Design





Last week we saw the fabulous turquoise and lilac girl's room in this year's Pasadena Showcase House of Design, and today we're visiting the boy's room by Santa Barbara-based interior designer Debra Lynn Henno with photography by Alexander Vertikoff. The loft bed and built-in dresser & desk pre-existed and were built years ago to conceal part of a stairwell when the owners did an addition to the home. I love what Debra did with it! How cute is the colorful boatwood siding the bed? It was all hand-painted in Indonesia, inspired by all the fabulous fabrics. I love all the natural textures here too. With that and the great colors, there's a beachy vibe I'm totally digging! Head on over here to see more designs by Debra!

Karen Garlanger Designs




What's better than Benjamin Moore's Wythe Blue?! A whole kitchen filled with it! Interior designer Karen Garlanger out of St. Joseph, Michigan was inspired by the cloud color in the granite when she chose one of my favorite paint colors for the custom cabinets. What a statement! You can read more about it over at Cultivate! Have you guys heard of that site?? I just learned about it yesterday and am hooked. It's entirely devoted to kitchen design, with loads of highly-pinnable photos, ideas, advice, that sort of stuff. A terrific resource if you're planning (or dreaming of!) a new space or remodel...or just plain love kitchens! Check it out here!

ECOterior Solutions
















I feel like we don't see a lot of rustic country homes using turquoise, but interior designers Carolyn Tierney and Diane Susoev of ECOterior Solutions are showing how it's done in this Dutchess County, New York farmhouse renovated by Crisp Architects and photographed by Rob Karosis. It might not be the style I'd choose for my own home, but there is something so comforting and warm about this home that is so hard to resist! I love that cozy bedroom...how nice to have a little sitting area, fireplace and tv hidden away barn door style! And of course I love the walls painted Benjamin Moore "Blue Porcelain"! :)

Bower Power Bathroom Makeover







I love a good makeover! Katie and Jeremy of Bower Power recently redid their office bathroom, documenting the steps on their blog. (Which means great before and afters!) The inspiration behind the new space was the beautiful Allen + Roth shower curtain. Looks amazing with the vanity painted "Park Place" by Allen + Roth. What a great way to spruce up a boring builder grade vanity! And the artwork, I LOVE it! Can you believe Katie found it at Goodwill?! For all the source info, budget breakdown, and lots more pics, just head here!

Happy Mother's Day



I just wanted to pop in today to wish you a Happy Mother's Day and to share this great photo from Bluebellgray, a Scottish textile design company. All of the pretty flowers and beautiful colors instantly made me happy. Not to mention that pretty darn fabulous turquoise desk! I need one just like it!



But more than that, I felt compelled to share these special photos with you guys. I lost my mom to cancer when I was twelve years old, and Mother's Day has never been an easy one for me. Despite all the years, I feel like she is still influencing me today. She was so strong, so filled with spirit, so happy, and such a great mom. I'm so incredibly thankful for that, so thankful for her.

I still miss her every day though...
