New room to decorate!!!

So I have kicked Jeff into the basement (ha - it was his idea) so now I get to take over his office. It's a pretty small bedroom, maybe 10x10. I have some white Ikea bookshelves in there that I happily removed from my dining room, a round white table with white wicker chairs, and a teak-ish dresser that back in the day was one of my mom's first furniture purchases. I am telling you all this because I am on my way to Home Depot shortly to get some paint for my new room. I was initially thinking a pale pink because I have a pink obsession, but I don't think pink would go so well with teak. Then it hit me. Wary Meyers turquoise.



Jo enthusiastically agreed with me this morning, so I printed off the first photo above and I'm going to attempt to match this at the depot. Wish me luck.

UPDATE: I'm back with a gallon of Behr's Sweet Rhapsody, which I think is brighter than the one in the photo - but it was my fav. I found out turquoise is as hard a colour to choose as blue is. Also found an awesome Debbie Travis rug that was about 60% off. Love a great deal. Will post pics here or on Flickr tomorrow.

Andy Sturgeon garden design

I have SO got the itch to do some landscaping to my miniscule property. I have someone coming in a week or so to finish my fence and build a new deck in the backyard. As a result, I am always looking for ideas for outdoor spaces. I love modern landscapes, and Andy Sturgeon's website was very inspirational. "Andy Sturgeon Garden Design has emerged as a leading design practice earning a reputation for creating stylish modern gardens that are a fusion of contemporary design and natural materials. Planting often features heavily and ranges from striking architectural schemes through to soft, naturalistic styles. Lighting, sculpture and furniture are frequently integral to the design."

Kids' rooms rule!

I've showcased Amie Weitzman's work earlier but did you see her fabulous kids' rooms when you checked her website. Great rooms, great understanding of what a child wants and needs in their own space. I'd love one for myself!
