True blue. It’s a favorite color of many including interior designer Mark D. Sikes who created these beautiful spaces in a sea of blue. The calming color is a fabulous choice throughout the house including for nurseries (boys and girls!), bathrooms and kitchens. For today’s Friday Finds, I’ve rounded-up a few of my current favorite home decor items in the shade of blue.

Book Review :: A House in the Country

Book Review // A House in the Country // via @simplifiedbee

What happens when a renowned architect and an A-list interior designer collaborate to build their dream home? The magical result is chronicled in a must have new decor book, A House in the Country which invites us in the one-of-a-kind Greek Revival-inspired house of Peter Pennoyer (architect) and Katie Ridder (designer). The creative power couple spent years searching for just the right property and in 2009 found a ranch house on six-and-a-half acres in Millbrook, New York. With more than 300 photos and illustrations, Peter and Katie invite us into their home and share the story behind the transformation. The book is simply organized into three sections – Exterior, Interior and Garden. It’s evident from just the first few page turns, that the home’s architecture and interior design are totally in sync. Don’t let the exterior traditional architecture fool you either – the home’s interior is colorful and full of modern touches. Katie’s bold use of color including pink and purple – beautifully connects and defines the spaces in Peter’s open-floor plan. In addition, the home’s garden is sensational and I love how the book dives into the smallest details including plant selection.

This home is extraordinary and the book captures it amazingly. Here is just a sampling of the stunning images.

One Room Challenge Spring 2016 :: Favorites

The last few weeks have been a bit of a blur. My kids are wrapping up their school year, we have started demoing the kitchen/great room and I’ve starting taking training classes for our puppy (see image below). I’m also quite relieved that the One Room Challenge Spring 2016 edition is complete. The experience was so much fun, yet exhausting. I’m so thankful to have worked with Linda from Calling it Home who created it all and with the generous event sponsors including, allmodernbassett mirrorbellacorcaroline cecil textilescrystoramadecoratorsbestfarrow & balljoss & mainloweslucent light shopluxholdupsminted.comwaiting on martha, and  waterworks.

A huge thank you to you. I’m overwhelmed by the supportive and loving comments, emails, and thumbs up you’ve sent my way. Many thanks!!!

Did you have an opportunity to check out the other 19 bloggers that participated in the challenge? Again, I was blown away by the talent and gorgeous designs. Here are a few of my favorite ORC transformations…

laundry room // the zhush

Who wouldn’t enjoy doing laundry in this space designed by Sue De Chiara of the The Zhush? My favorite design detail is the fabulous Nuvolette wallpaper by Cole and Sons. Perfection.

Claire Brody transformed her living room using layers of neutrals. Isn’t it inviting? Love.

Modern, organized and chic – the new office space for the Waiting On Martha team is a fave.

The guest suite by pencil and paper blog is one I’d love in my own home. I adore the blush pink walls and chinoiserie touches.

How sweet is this pink bedroom the Nicole from Sketch 42 designed for her sister? Loving the skirted table in Miles Redd fabric.

colorful den // the pink clutch // one room challenge

Paige Minear of The Pink Clutch transformed her already beautiful den into a colorful oasis. There is so much eye candy in this space from the wallpapered bookcases to the gorgeous upholstery. Love all of the layers.

San Francisco Decorator Showcase :: Cheerful Girls Bedroom

girls bedroom // ann lowengart interiors // san francisco decorator showcase

Another room that caught my eye in this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase is the cheerful girl’s bedroom by Annie Lowengart of Ann Lowengart Interiors. “Smoll’s Room Redux” is a modern twist on the designer’s sister’s childhood bedroom. Lowengart takes a classic pink and orange color combination and adds a contemporary, chic twist using playful patterns and unexpected accent colors. However, the modern brass chandelier and colorful, geometric ceiling wallpaper (from the Flavor Paper) steals the show. I’m completely smitten with this bedroom as any little girl would be too!
