Mom's Favorite Color: Turquoise

I got my mother's full attention when I showed her the website of Toronto interior decorator
Holly Dyment. Any shade of blue, but mainly turquoise, makes her weak in the knees!!

Another amazing site with colorful eye-candy is the Chicago-based Civility Design. So much personality, so much FUN! The Fontana Arte chandelier in the living room is fantastic, along with those fuchsia sofas.

I found a new love for a blogger: Phoebe Howard, check her out.

And finally..... Daniela of Aesthetic Oiseau created this "to die for" kitchen that so many people will fall for.

Coral Obsessed

I am in awe at the beautiful headboard and the patterned throw pillows paired with the coral quilt.

Blog Obsessed

I found these amazing photos of a beautiful home of a New Hampshire-based designer Lisa Teague. She also has a blog filled with inspiration and great photos! For more of her work, view her website here.

Two rooms stood out to me most:

A small seating area with a painted ottoman, crisp couch & chair with patterned pillows. Even the newel post of the stairs and server add a unique antique touch to the refreshing room.

Anything in the range of pink or coral AND involving anything nautical hits a place in my heart! Yet again, I'm noticing a pattern in my likes of a simple neutral, topped with pops of colors. Another focal point of this room is the fushcia wall with orange leaves, pulling in another rich color.
