Ahhhhhh, turquoise -- my absolute favorite color in the entire world! I could never get tired of gazing upon all things turquoise, and can't imagine ever living without it in my home and wardrobe (and yes, I gotta be near the turquoise ocean at least a couple of times a year, or I turn into a deprived monster!). Thank you so much for this post ... total eye candy that made my day!

You made my day with the turquoise, the bedding is beautiful, the chandelier, exquisite, oh and all that liquid turquoise*sigh*we're having a rainy weather here due to cyclonic conditions in our part of Indian Ocean.

Your beachy photos could turn me into a salty little sea gal instead of a mountain mama! The bedroom with the old boards is truly inspired....the first shot would look great in any mountain home..even with the orchid...

Just beautiful. Totally what I needed to help me with the cranky day I was having.

I love all the pops of blue in the images and they look great with the orange background!

What a great post... I think the top picture of the vanity is my favorite. Remove the sink and it would be a welcoming entry way for my little villa by the sea...

Francine Gardner said...

Love the turquoise wing chair. Being more a "neutral" type of designer, I find myself gravitating more and more towards color and turquoise would be one of them. Just read that you attending the Olympics couple of times, how fantastic!
