Fresh apartment inspiration...

All I can do is think about...
new apartment decor. It literally is an all consuming obsession, I've got no shame to my game. As you all know, I have been thinking of a warm and neutral living area but when I saw this little living room...I might have changed my mind. This adorable living room is mostly neutral with splashes of pastel color and gold. I am really into this look right now.
Look at the hardwood floors. I can't get over the beauty of all the gold fixtures in the kitchen either, thats some mighty good looking hardware. I wish my new landlord would let me have at the plain fixtures in my new kitchen. Ugh, the joys of renting...
I really enjoy this little office nook. Small enough for this space yet ample desk and eating area. Notice the brass pineapple figurines. Just like mine. Love those little cuties! I kinda want to create something like this in my new space.

Wallcolor Wednesday {pretty turquoise blue}

At BlogFest, we got these great new House Beauitful books and its all about BLUE!  I just love a turquoise bedroom. As a decorator, I adore using turquoise because it is one of those colors that just soothes the senses and pleases everybody. I know I could always use a bit of turquoise in a room.
This very traditional bedroom is one of my all time favorite rooms. It's very sophisticated and lush, I could absolutely relax in this lovely space.
In addition to a very serene bedroom, turquoise is perfect in the living room, too!
I love these perfectly aqua hued rooms, dark wood floors are the perfect companion to the bright and bold colors. They both are uber delicious and every bit of turquoise I could ever need.

Pretty in PINK...a perfectly wallpapered living room

Good morning my lovely Decoristas! I loved all of the feedback on the wallpaper I love...thanks so much! After that post, my adorable reader Jackie sent me these photos of her living room, I fell instantly. So bright and cheerful, I love the way aqua blue just makes a space so happy. I also love how she just used dramatic wallpaper on one wall, which is a clever and easy thing to do. Have any of you guys tried using wallpaper in your home? 
If so, send me I'd love to see!

Wall color wonderful!

Deep, saturated jewel tone hues are going to be all the rage this coming year. I have always been a lover of gorgeous color on walls, but this beautiful shade of teal had me swooning for more. This lovely London home is gorgeous. Elements of traditional are jazzed up to perfection... notice the gorgeous green fabrics on the chairs. The gold lighting in the library literally took my breath away, so creative and chic.

How beautiful does Colette Van Den Thillart look in her london digs? She is the creative director for
NH Design. Her taste is absolutely incredible... a well deserved House + Home feature!

A Saturday swoon worthy home

As I pack all of my things up this weekend, I find myself already dreaming up what my next home will be decorated like. Visions of so many things dance in my head. I am especially inspired by this eclectic parisian style inspired home. A little bit of modern country, a little bit of glam. 
The turquoise dressers are killing me. I'm crazy about them...
and feeling uber inspired.

Tablescape tuesday {decorate for Thanksgiving like david jimenez}

I just love Thanksgiving, I am thankful for so many things in my life.
It gets me so excited to prepare for Thanksgiving dinner. All the yummy food. sigh!

For this holiday season, I am overtly inspired by this gorgeous David Jimenez table decor.
The chocolate hues complement the gorgeous orange dishware perfectly. I love the turquoise painted dining chairs as well as the walls, so beautiful.
Finished off with candlelight and arrangements of the most gorgeous orange roses I have ever seen.
It may not be the traditional Thanksgiving decor colors but I think the punch of turquoise adds personality, so very decorista.

In other blissful news...
something I am thankful for= Jen Ramos gave me a shout out in her Siren Mag interview.
She thinks I'm a "world changing Christian" and it made my whole day! 
Especially because she is sort of a huge inspiration to me. 
So sweet.

inspired spaces {a turquoise-a-licious patio}

It's so bright and sunny here today and I am completely inspired by this bloggers'
california patio featured on apartment therapy.
If you love turquoise as much as I do, you will love the way she incorporates the color on the floors and on the ceiling. Such a happy little place.
I would love to curl up with some coffee and a good book here.
What do you guys think????
