How often do we get to see a turquoise Christmas tree?! So fun! This festive Charlotte, North Carolina home belongs to Michel Van Devender, a designer at Lisa Sherry Interieurs and was featured in the recent Holiday issue of Lonny. I loved Michel's bit of of advice: "Let your home tell the story of who your family is and how you live. People are interesting and have personalities, and so should their homes." Yes! And from I'm seeing above, this is one fun family! You can read all about the home and see lots more photos by Patrick Cline right here!

Immersing myself in a house full of pretty color (Wythe Blue!), fun pattern and fabulous furniture is what I call the perfect end to the week! This fabulous home was designed by Abbe Fenimore of Studio Ten 25 out of Dallas, Texas (and photographed beautifully by Melanie Johnson) for a newlywed couple that wanted a chic modern look for their first home together. The builder’s standard and more traditional finishes weren't working for them so Abbe had dark espresso hardwoods installed, dated lighting changed out and unveiled a black and white color palette with pops of turquoise and yellow! She also incorporated the wife's love for mirrored pieces while bringing in the bold graphics and masculine touches the husband was after. All in such perfect balance! Isn't the bedroom amazing?! (The couple–and Abbe's favorite room!) The curtains and bedding are so luxurious, not to mention that incredible headboard!

If you love Abbe's style as much as I do (EVERY room she's designed I love, how often can you say that??), definitely visit her online store Shop Ten 25! Also check out her website and blog too....so much inspiration, so little time!! Happy weekend! :)

When it comes to style, The Chancellor Hotel in Fayetteville, Arkansas has it going on! How fabulous is their Chancellor Suite designed by Tobi Fairley and photographed here by Rett Peek?! You'd never guess it was even a hotel! Tobi wanted to bring level of sophistication to Arkansas reminiscent of her favorite classic hotels like the Carlyle in New York City, but infused with her signature colorful style that we all love. I could eat up all those turquoise chairs and the yellow sofas...so plush, so gorgeous!! Check out more photos and learn all about the project at Tobi's Blog!

Is this room not entirely darling?! Interior designer Tawna Allred of Rêve Décor out of Star Valley, Wyoming created the cheery space, photographed beautifully here by Rebecca White. The room actually belongs to Tawna's two lucky little girls, ages 9 and 4, so she wanted it to be a little more grown up and fun...but also flexible! My favorite thing here is the adorable artwork. Her oldest daughter actually drew the pictures years ago and Tawna turned them into oil paintings! (A fab service she provides for everyone!) I just love the wainscoting, super-cute pendant lights and cozy bedding too! Check out more photos–including before's, and read all about the space right here!

We received our first big batch of snow over the weekend here in Minnesota, so I am in holiday mode big time now! And let me tell you, I would love it if my halls were decked liked Flea Market Trixie's! The green and turquoise combo is so fresh and happy, a perfect complement to her already beautiful home. (You may remember seeing the space without the holiday decor here.) I love all of her vintage and handmade items, especially her collection of lovely vintage frames and art. (Check out her Etsy shop for similar pieces!) For more pics and to read all about her decor, head right over here!

A fun side note, when I was at the grocery store the other day I noticed Flea Market Trixie's porch on the cover of Cottage Style Magazine! So exciting, congrats Flea Market Trixie!

Emerald is their choice for 2013 and I'm very pleased...it looks fantastic with turquoise! According to Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, green is the most abundant hue in nature. The human eye actually sees more of it than any other color in the spectrum. I'm thinking green and blue has to be Mother Nature's favorite color combo!

With so many fabulous pieces, it was no surprise to learn that homeowner Beatriz Silveira also owns Batik Interiores, a design shop in Madrid. I love how loads of natural light and a serene palette give the apartment a sense of space, with a cozy, warm feel. The wood floors and wooden furniture–especially the classic Wishbone Chairs, are just beautiful too!! You can tour more of the home over at Micasa!

Laundry rooms aren't usually the first spaces to get decorated, but I feel like we ALL love and appreciate a pretty laundry room! Kim Wilson of Sand & Sisal decided that since she had to spend so much of her time doing laundry ("with two messy teen girls, two dirty, sweaty, little boys, a hubs who never unrolls his gym socks!" Ha!!), then her laundry room had to at least be beautiful! She did a stellar job on the makeover, don't you think?? She used one of my favorite paint colors on the walls–"Rainwashed" by Sherwin Williams. I especially love it next to the fresh white beadboard ceiling and crown molding that they installed. The sorting station is absolutely genius too!! Read all about this inspiring space and see lots more pics (including before's) right here!

We spent this past weekend decorating our home for the holiday, now it's time to decorate the blog! When the owners of this cozy mountain home moved from D.C. to Park City, Utah, they hired interior designer Elizabeth Hague and architect George Myers to design them a home with a traditional Eastern aesthetic...no typical timbered mountain home for this family! The beautiful fabrics and rugs inspired the paint colors, and get this, Elizabeth chose more than 30 different shades (I'll share a few below). Finish your tour of the home with more photographs by John Granen, and read the heartwarming story over at Traditional Home!

My favorite feature in November's issue of Lonny was this Hollywood Hills home belonging to interior designer Mark D. Sikes. The dining room took my breath away with the stunning hand-painted Gracie Chinoiserie wallpaper, but I also adore the bathroom with the hand-painted Portuguese tiles! Wish I could snag that entire breakfast area for myself too...love those director's chairs! You can see lots more photos by Patrick Cline and read the article here! And definitely visit Mark's blog Chic People, Glamorous Places, Stylish Things!

Oh and here's a beautiful bonus photo of the bedroom by Amy Neunsinger from Mark D. Sikes website! So pretty!

I so want to fill our kitchen with delectable turquoise tile!! This fabulous home by interior designer Cynthia Masters of Panageries in Greenville, South Carolina is bursting with great color and design! I love the juxtaposition of the bright white spaces with the moody red and turquoise dining room, and how she carries the color palette throughout. I'm feeling a global influence here as well, which is something the Southern designer is known for! See more of the home photographed by Fisheye Studios right on over here!

Enjoy your weekend everyone!! Can't believe December is almost here!

This Delaware Shore home is a beautiful breath of fresh coastal air! Designed and built by Echelon Custom Homes, the spacious home located at the The Peninsula overlooking the Indian River Bay is so open and welcoming. Don't you love the paint colors?? They used one of my favorites–Sea Salt by Sherwin William in both the living room and the bathroom. (The cozy kitchen is painted Sherwin Williams Oyster Bay.) I just love the mix of woods, patterns and beachy colors in the living room. Great accessories too! Tour the rest of the home, including a really cool game room and office, right here!

Amanda Nisbet is one of the very first designers I ever learned about and immediately loved. Can you see why?! Her extensive portfolio is so colorful and so fresh that it leaves me practically speechless! Her genius blend of color, pattern and texture make for some incredibly elegant, fun and daring interiors. Not to mention totally livable and comfortable! This hardly puts a dent it in, you must head to her site to see lots more of her incredible designs!

Amanda also recently published her very first book, Dazzling Design. Definitely one for our wish lists this year!

Aqua, seaweed green, driftwood, white...it just doesn’t get any better than that. The talented designers at Tracery Interiors hit the ball right out of the park with this WaterSound beach house photographed by Jean Allsopp! They gave the relaxed space a coastal vibe by bringing all the colors and textures of the beach indoors. Don't you love the circular conversation area?? Those blue slipcovered chairs look uber comfy! For even more fabulous beach homes designed by Tracery, just visit their portfolio...you'll be glad you did!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving week!! It's nice to be back home after our great vacation to Montana (more about that later)! My favorite thing after a loooong ride in the car?? A loooong hot bath! What a dream it would be to soak away in this beautiful bathroom by Cole Wagner Cabinetry out of Rochester Hills, Michigan, photographed here by Beth Singer. The color on the vanity and ceiling is entirely lovely, and I love the pretty light fixture! Oh and I'll take the chairs too, love those! Check out more work by Cole Wagner Cabinetry over at their gallery!

Hi! – I’m Joann Kandrac – One half of Kandrac & Kole Interior Designs, Inc. based in Atlanta, Georgia.I am also a turquoise lover like Erin and appreciate her asking me to guest blog while she’s away!We received a call from a client who told us she had been “stalking us” through Pinterest, our website, and facebook.   She loved our style and called for a consultation for her outdoor space.  She had just completed a large backyard project incorporating a pool, spa, out door kitchen and eating and lounging area.  The space was beautiful but lacked color or style. We were thrilled to take it on!!We had a lot of fun “stylizing” this space.  It was a beautiful spring day in Atlanta.  We had music playing, refreshing drinks and snacks, our amazing install team and a bowl of cherries to top it off!! One of the great advantages we had was that the client was a big Pinterest fan and had been compiling outdoor spaces she loved.  Her boards gave us great insight into what she was drawn to.  She had several pictures of hanging swings.  We got right on that. We are so fortunate to have access to so many talented people that work on our team!!  This custom swing was created by Mitch Mitton.Here is the upstairs deck where we incorporated the tailor made swing, a zinc top table, and window treatments in all "outdoor friendly" materials.We received this email from the client a couple weeks after the install:"Tom and I were looking for a place to go while the kids are at camp, but couldn't find anywhere as wonderful as our own house. THANK YOU GALS SO MUCH!!!" I just love my job!!JoannTo see more of our work, visit Kandrac & Kole Interior Designs.[...]

Just stopping in to wish all of my American readers a Happy Thanksgiving! Isn't this tablescape designed by Chris Nease of Celebrations at Home perfect for today (and this blog)?! I love the brown and turquoise color scheme with the pop of orange and yellow from the flowers. So many great ideas here, my favorite being the cute wishbones! I love that everyone gets to make a wish! See more pics and learn all about this festive table right here!

I can hardly believe it but this November marks my 5th year writing this blog. I'd never have made it this long without all of your support and encouragement, not to mention shared love of turquoise! So on this thankfullest day of the year, thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for reading House of Turquoise!

Signing off from our cute little cabin in Montana!

The most stunning Vanguard sectional is the framework for this comfortable, and beautiful family room.We incorporated a bit of geometric, contemporary feel with the Kravet patterned sofa pillows. With the dark woven woods, the cream sheer drapery panels in this room really stood out.We are in love with this greek key nailhead pattern on the sofa arms. A cozy kitchen nook was created with this "birch woods" inspired artwork and custom table and chairs.  This formal living room greets you as you walk through the front door of this home.How light, airy and inviting is this space? By using soft blues, warm golds, and creams, we incorporated a bit of whimsy in the rug along with geometric striped chair upholstery and small chevron window treatments for this beautiful dining room.

Guest Blogger: Amanda from Dixie Delights

Tue, 20 Nov 2012 14:20:00 +0000

Hi there, Turquoise fans, I’m Amanda from Dixie Delights!  With Erin away, I’m delighted to come and play for a day!!  I’ve just finished up my son’s “big boy room” and thought I’d kick this off with a little trip down memory lane.  Here’s the “before before”… Here’s the “before” - the sweet nursery where the baby spent his first three years on earth…And here’s the after – a fairly neutral room that we hope will grow with him for years to come!  You'll probably notice the lack of toys - we try to keep the them in the playroom and basement, reserving the bedrooms for sleeping, reading and quiet time.Sources:Paint - Benjamin Moore Pale Oak (walls) and Benjamin Moore Alabaster (trim)Floor - unstained white oakRug - Ballard Designs outletCarriage House Chandelier – Ballard DesignsFabric - Ikea Berta Ruta (buffalo check), Calico Corners Como Gris (velvet), and burlap from Online Fabric StoreCurtain rods - TargetMy parents gave us the vintage Ethan Allen canopy bed, and in spite of my affinity for canopy beds, even I wouldn’t do that to the boy.  So, we left the top rails off and shortened the posts on the foot board.  My mother and I made the buffalo check and burlap shams and duvet cover.  My upholsterer made the bolster.  The sheet set is from Pottery Barn in Sandalwood, the diamond matelasse spread was from Target about ten years ago, the polka dot blanket is from Aux Belles Choses in New Orleans, and the Pottery Barn Kids monogrammed quilt was a baby shower gift!  The gorgeous crab painting is by Catherine Lovett, a local Savannah artist.  She’s a complete doll and I am pretty much head over heels with all of her work.  The crab was the inspiration for the room and I think it’s perfection!  (And as luck would have it, the baby has yet to pronounce it “bery skary.”)  The two bedside tables were originally mismatched pieces from an antique/junk store and from my foyer many moons ago.  I wasn’t in love (or really even in-like for that matter) with either of them to start, but they were the right size, the right height and the right price (free) so I painted their tops with Annie Sloan’s chalk paint in old white and then skirted them in burlap to hide their different bases.  After scouring the Ballard Designs outlet for months on end (seriously…I’m talking at least 7 months), I finally found a pair of the Suzanne Kasler large gourd lamps in gray green for a song.  The drum shades were also lucky outlet finds (that didn’t require seventeen trips.)  The table decor was picked up here and there over time.    The dresser wall is probably my favorite in the room.  The dresser was my husband’s as a child and I made it over by stripping and staining the top, painting the base in Annie Sloan’s duck egg blue chalk paint and adding new mercury glass knobs from Anthropologie.  Oh, and speaking of those knobs, while they are undoubtedly easy on the eye, they are really the devil to work with since they simply won’t stay screwed in.  (Read: steer clear of these knobs!)  I purchased the mirror a few years ago from a local boutique.  Restoration Hardware carries an almost identical version, but I don’t want to make y’all cry when I tell you that it costs at least double what I paid.  The chippy corbels are the same us under the bar in the den.  I’ve had them for a few years (purchased from the same shoppe as the mirror - G. Scott In[...]

Mon, 19 Nov 2012 14:20:00 +0000

Hi, we are Hooper and Ann visiting from Birds of a Feather Design. We are so excited Erin asked us to guest blog while she is away. We are interior designers from Wilmington, NC and just finished a master bedroom that is covered in Erin's favorite hue. Of course, we try to work in a little turquoise every chance we get, but wanted to mix it up by pairing it with emerald and gold.The inspiration started with a Christmas candle that I got last year.  I have been wanting to use this color palate ever since!Lucky for us, we had a client who loves all shades of turquoise and was willing to give us free reign. The custom headboard and cornices were made by a local work room. Together, they add so much height and interest to the room. The green and white "Xu Garden" bedding is by Legacy Home and the ikat shams and bed skirt are custom. We added in a touch of charcoal zebra (because you need a little zebra in every space) and more touches of gold in the sitting area.The pale aqua glass lamp and Safavieh marble table add new textures to the space.We love the gold Nate Berkus (for Target) hammered bowl.  The artwork is from one of our favorite local shopping spots, Crabby Chic. The client had these amazing quartz lamps and the green mid-century side tables were a Craig's List find! Would you believe they were already painted in the perfect color? The client wanted storage and a place to hide the TV and components. We chose this limed oak, World's Away cabinet.... ...and added a little bling. The ivory silk drapes flank the windows and peek out from under the cornices. We embellished the drapes with a green trim to add a little extra detail. The gold chandelier is from Home Depot (yes, as in "more saving, more doing"). It's beautiful in person. We hope you love it as much as we do -- don't be afraid to pair an unexpected color with turquoise. As Erin has shown us, it works with everything! Happy Thanksgiving and please come and visit us over at Birds of a Feather Design. We'd love to have you!Bye bye birdie,Ann and Hooper[...]

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!

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 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!

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!
