Christine Markatos Design




















So much beauty!! The portfolio of Santa Monica interior designer Christine Markatos Lowe is downright stunning. I absolutely love the fresh mixture of pattern, color and texture in her elegant style! That first image of the stairway with the chevron-wallpapered bathroom feels so ethereal, it seriously takes me away. Love that comfy outdoor lounge area too with the piles of pillows! I really love all the rooms though. A little rustic, but just so, so pretty!! There's lots more where this came from, so head here next!

But before you go, let me tell you the winner of the $100 gift certificate to One Kings Lane!

Congrats to....
KLloyd from Tipsy Skipper (super cute stuff, btw!)

Have a wonderful Easter weekend everyone!

Brittany Davis
















It doesn't get any sweeter than this! Creative and talented mom Brittany Davis out of Charlottesville, Virginia designed this incredible nursery for her little Ada Jane, using the most beautiful colors (walls are Aqua Glow by Valspar) and unique objects. Everything you see is something Brittany made (with the help of good friends), pieces from antique shops that were painted and re-finished, or things saved through the years–like her mother's boots from the 50's, her old ballet pointe shoes and Christening gown or the needle point her Great Grandmother created! Amazing!! I know this is one room that everyone in the entire family treasures! Such beautiful photos too...Cali Freeman with Once like a Spark Photography did an amazing job capturing the delightful space! Love it all!

Great Neighborhood Homes








































What I love most about this home? I've actually been inside it! The home was designed and built by Great Neighborhood Homes, a boutique builder here in Minneapolis, and was in the recent Parade of Homes. How thrilled I was to discover my favorite color used throughout! I can't tell you how much I love the fresh palette of greens and blues, with fun pops of red and coral. How fabulous is the grasscloth on the dining room ceiling?? AND the wallpaper in the bathrooms, the comfy window seats and beautiful chandeliers?! Love it all! See the rest of the home with lots more photos taken by Mike McCaw of Spacecrafting/Architectural Photography right over here! And tour even more beautiful Minnesota homes built by Great Neighborhood Homes here!

Samantha Pynn


Virginia Macdonald








Anyone familiar with the HGTV Canada show Summer Home?? Looks like it could be my favorite show ever–if only we had it here in the US! Interior designer Samantha Pynn, the host and principal designer of the show, designed this absolutely charming Muskoka cottage from season two. I am loving the laid back vibe with comfy furniture and pretty beachy colors. The fresh coat of white paint sure makes the space seem so much bigger than it is too! Check out the 'before' pics of the space, the cottage saw quite the transformation! And visit the shopping guide for source questions!

Inspired by Palm Beach, Biarritz, and old Hollywood glamour, this colorful Southampton home designed by Celerie Kemble and Anna Burke of Kemble Interiors is a big slice of happy! I adore the whimsical bed in the first picture, doesn't it remind you of a circus tent? I'm really loving the living room though, so fresh and filled with light!
