Anyone ever been to St. Simons Island, Georgia?! I've just added it to my must-visit list! And I know right where I'd stay...the Annie Laurie Cottage! The whimsical beach house has so much charm, so much turquoise, I can't handle it! The talented homeowners recently spent a year restoring and redecorating the home from top to bottom. Speaking of top, how about that fab master bedroom that takes up the whole 3rd floor?! Love the cozy sitting area with the built-in seating! The delightful home is available for rent–imagine the fun, there's even a piano!! Read all about the home and see more photos here!


As promised, below you'll find some of our vacation pics from Mexico's Riviera Maya! We spent all our time relaxing, staring at the water, playing in the waves, napping, eating, and more relaxing...you get the picture! Not only were we taking a 'babymoon', but we were also celebrating our 2nd anniversary. We stayed at the same resort we stayed at for our honeymoon, El Dorado Casitas Royale, as it was just so amazing the first time around we had to experience the paradise again!

I'm getting pretty big, as you can see from the pic of me up there! Just hit 25 weeks, and am still feeling good, and absolutely loving feeling the little guy kick! Can't believe how fast this time is going...August will be here before we know it!

Have a fantastic weekend everyone!! :)

Design Studio by Raymond






















I feel like I'm back on vacation! Located on Barefoot Beach in Bonita Springs, Florida, this home from Design Studio by Raymond is awash in beautiful beachy hues! The fabulous backsplash took my breath away...the color couldn't be any more perfect! I'm loving the turquoise grasscloth in the office, cute dining banquettes and awesome BBQ area too! Not to mention the killer view! Read about the home and see more pics right over here!

Tracey Rapisardi















I'm finally back from our babymoon!! We had an amazing, relaxing time and I can't wait to share a few photos with you guys! In the meantime, I thought I'd share this BHG feature of a New England coastal cottage-style home designed by Tracey Rapisardi. It's one of my all-time favorite homes! (Wonder why?!) I blogged about it 4 years ago with teeny photos, so I am all over it now that they're sharing larger ones! More to love, more to drool over! And drooling I am...the beautiful layers of turquoise and crisp white leaves me at a loss for words! You can read all about the home and see more photos at BHG!

Time to unpack and get the laundry started! :)

Guest Blogger: Audrey of Oh So Lovely

I (like all of you House of Turquoise followers) am obsessed with all things turquoise....and have been for as long as I can remember, so you can probably imagine how excited I am to be guest blogging here today.

I have used many shades of turquoise in the paint and decor of our home, but today I want to share with you the baby nursery that I recently DIY'd (on a major budget) for our daughter Vivienne (Vivi), who is set to arrive this June.

Once we found out we were having a girl, I immediately started thinking about the nursery and all of the possibility that this room had. I knew that turquoise would be the main color (duh), and while I am not a huge pink person, I wanted to add pops of hot pink/coral to girly it up just a bit (but not too much).

I also knew that I wanted a retro post modern style and to do the entire room from scratch for less than $500. Most people would think this is an impossible task, but I am the self proclaimed queen of DIY on a budget, so I was determined to make it happen.

Here is where I started:


And after 3 weeks of some solid DIY work (and many cans of spray paint...and a protective mask of course), I am pleased to introduce our $425 nursery!

(After you check out the photos, feel free to head over to my blog to read -in detail - how I pulled off the entire room on such a small budget. I also share project tutorials and links to some adorable free printable nursery art).









































To take a home tour of the rooms that we have updated in our house (on a budget, of course) feel free to check out my blog.

Thanks for reading!

xo,

Audrey
