Rachel Reider Interiors + Chapman House


























I have quite the obsession with all things Nantucket, so imagine my delight when I saw this! The chic boutique hotel was designed by the Boston-based interior designer Rachel Reider, and I have to say I've never seen such a cool hotel, a hotel so up my design alley, in all my life...forget that it's even in Nantucket! Chapman House was built in 1717, but Rachel recently gave it one heck of a facelift. Public areas and each of the 11 unique guest rooms, captured here by Rare Brick, are brought to life with fabulous fabrics, bold colors and yummy prints, not to mention way-cool lighting, furniture and floor coverings. I love that there's still a coastal vibe (it is Nantucket after all) but not a whale to be seen! Get all the info on the hotel right over here, and see more images and learn about the project over at Rachel's website!

So happy it's Friday! This weekend Chris and I are headed off on a road trip to Montana! We're spending next week in a tiny little cabin in the middle of nowhere! We will get to see some great national parks though and hopefully a ton of wildlife. Feel free to follow me on Instagram! (May not be a whole lot of turquoise this trip....but I'm always on the lookout!) I have some guest bloggers ready and waiting to share some really great projects with you guys though, so keep on coming back while I'm away!

Frosted Robin Cupcakes










It doesn't get much sweeter than turquoise and pink! Ok...maybe if there's cupcakes involved! Sheree Harrison, the owner of Frosted Robin Cupcakes, chose the captivating combo for her delightful and delicious cupcake cafe in Seaport Village, San Diego. (She was actually inspired by photos on my blog!) I'd say the wall color she used inside is darn right perfect...so of course it has to be custom! I can tell you though that the yummy doors and windows are painted Dunn-Edwards "Teal Me No Lies". Other than the color scheme, I love that Sheree instilled a home-away-from-home vibe in her cafe, inspired by childhood family gatherings in the kitchen. That's a place I want to be–the cupcakes are just a bonus! Learn all about Frosted Robin Cupcakes right over here! (Don't blame me if you're hungry afterwards!)

Caitlin Wilson Design
















Caitlin Wilson has long been a favorite designer of mine. Just looking at her fantastic Philadelphia penthouse apartment photographed by Courtney Apple, I'm sure you can see why! Known for her fresh use of color and bold patterns, and an incredible textile line that incorporates both, Caitlin successfully mixes high-end with bargain finds for a look that's unexpected and unique. I love every element from her home–where she also runs her business, from the bold colors (the foyer painted Key Largo Green by Benjamin Moore!!) and patterns to the eclectic mix of pieces collected from their life and travels abroad. You can see lots more from Caitlin and learn the sources of things above over at Design*Sponge and her feature in Matchbook Magazine. Definitely don't miss her always-inspiring blog either, as well as this post here with my favorite project of Caitlin's!

Lane Homes & Remodeling












White kitchens are my serious weakness, especially when paired with turquoise! I was excited to learn the owner of this beautiful kitchen designed by Lane Homes & Remodeling out of Richmond, Virginia was actually inspired by my blog when choosing the color palette for her new space. (How happy that makes me!) There are so many great details, all captured here by photographer John Magor. I love the mix of tile on the backsplash–especially the quatrefoil pattern, and the glass cabinets on top and their cool design. So glad they included some open cabinets as well, no better way to show off that lovely turquoise dinnerware! Head on over here to see the 'before' pics, as well as many more inspiring spaces!

TR Building & Remodeling






I'm not sure I've ever laid eyes on such a darling bathroom! Designed by TR Building & Remodeling out of New Canaan, Connecticut, the feminine space photographed by Jane Beiles is just as beautiful as it is practical. Plenty of room for sisters to get ready–there's even a cute dressing table! Plenty of storage for towels, makeup and jewelry! And plenty of style all around....I LOVE the shimmery tile, fresh white cabinets and beadboard on the walls. Such cute accessories too! Oh...and the loveliest shade of turquoise on the walls! See lots more from the folks at TR Building & Remodeling right over here!

Edit: The lovely paint color is "Raindrop" by Sherwin Williams! (Thanks to Kim for digging it up!)
