The Pirates' House + Giveaway Winners!

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Imagine my delight when we happened upon this incredible old building!! Located in downtown Savannah, The Pirates' House is a historic restaurant and tavern established in 1753. (Had we not just eaten a yummy lunch at Paula Deen's restaurant, you can bet I would have stepped inside for a bite!) The historic building is located a block from the Savannah River and was built as an inn for visiting seamen. According to their website, the Inn became "a rendezvous of blood-thirsty pirates and sailors from the Seven Seas. Here seamen drank their fiery grog and discoursed, sailor fashion, on their adventures from Singapore to Shanghai and from San Francisco to Port Said." So cool! Has anyone ever dined here?? Their menu looks just as delicious as those turquoise shutters!!


I know you're all dying to know the lucky winners of the LoveFeast Table giveaway!

John Oetgen


 
 
 
 
 
 
I'll take a dose of fresh mountain air any day! It surprised me to learn that a pair of aquamarine lamps inspired the color palette of this beautiful mountain home by Atlanta designer John Oetgen. The color is more obvious in the bedroom (painted Palladian Blue) and dining room, but I love how it's used in the living room as well! Compared to the dark-paneled rooms, I just love how open and airy the bedroom feels...I think that's where I would spend all my time! That, or the covered porch! You gotta check out more photos by Mali Azima of the rest of the home and the breathtaking view, just head over to Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles

Turquoise in the Lowcountry

                                         
Talk about curb appeal! Here is your first installment of vacation pics! The Lowcountry between Charleston and Savannah is filled with some of the prettiest homes I've ever seen! The cutest front porches and piazzas with their Haint Blue ceilings, the biggest live oaks and pretty palmetto palm trees that seem to perfectly frame every home, and so much history to go along with the architecture...it was easy to imagine what life must have been like so long ago! Above were some of my favorite homes in Charleston, Beaufort, Palmetto Bluff and Savannah–click on those to learn more about each place! I still have lots more photos to share, but I hope you enjoyed seeing these homes as much as I did!

**I want to give big thank you to my photo-assistant/driver/cute husband Chris who helped me take all of these pics! How many times I said "Stop! Hold on! I have to take picture!" I'm blessed with a very patient and supportive partner! :)

I also have an exciting update on this week's Plush Pumpkin giveaway! The generous LoveFeast Table girls want to make the giveaway even better! There will now be TWO winners! In addition to someone winning the turquoise pumpkin trio, another House of Turquoise reader will win this adorable Large Plush Acorn Nest in Turquoise! So be sure to enter the giveaway right here if you haven't already! Thanks LoveFeast Table!!

James Radin

Yesterday we saw a quick peek into an amazing beach home designed by James Radin, the LA-based designer who, in addition to some pretty incredible homes, has also worked on several film sets we all love: Something’s Gotta Give, The Holiday and It’s Complicated. I just adore this Broad Beach home he designed! Definitely has that relaxed, inviting beach house vibe that I'm constantly drawn to. Did you see the kitchen?! I wish there was another photo of it so we could really get our drool on! The dining room is great too, love those chairs slipcovered in the whimsical Clarence House fabric! Finish your tour of the great space right over here!

I'm super excited to share some of my vacation pics with you guys, but my computer is not exactly cooperating with me right now! Apparently my new camera and old computer aren't exactly the best of friends! But expect some fun posts on it soon!

Velvet Plush Pumpkins Giveaway!

 

Oh my goodness, my turquoise-loving heart is soaking up every inch of this room! The fabulous space photographed by Annie Schlechter featured in the September issue of Coastal Living was designed by James Radin, the same designer who also happened to contribute to the decor of everyone's favorite Something's Gotta Give. I just love how the otherwise neutral palette is brought to life with pops of turquoise. Matthew Gleason did a terrific job styling the shot! I'd move right in in a heartbeat!


I have a special giveaway today that will make a great pop of color on YOUR fall table! The lovely LoveFeast Table ladies are at it again this year with their scrumptious velvet plush pumpkins!! Just like real pumpkins, these beautiful velvet creations are unique by virtue of their stems. Each one is handmade with a real pumpkin, gourd or squash stem attached. And as you can see, they come in incredible colors and an array of sizes! The winner of this week's giveaway will receive a Velvet Plush Pumpkin Turquoise Trio Set! LOVE it!
