GUEST POST: HOUSE OF TURQUOISE TUESDAY!

Hi everyone, I'm Erin from the blog House of Turquoise! I'm so excited to be guest blogging today for Coco...I'm a long-time fan of this fabulous blog!

Living room with a sea foam sofa, wall mounted lamps, and a wood coffee table with steel legs

As the name of my blog implies, I'm also a fan of the color turquoise! This elegant home designed by Tobi Fairley is filled with a serene sea-inspired color palette that I love dearly.

Living room with sea foam sofa, brown armchairs, wire frame stools, a white painted brick fireplace with a wall mounted TV in the mantel, white cabinets with sea foam inlets and a sliding door

The soft and soothing color scheme is carried over into the spacious, light-filled kitchen. I love the aqua cabinets, lighting, and great built-in banquette. What a dream space!

Kitchen with subway tile backsplash, silver pendant lights, aqua cabinets, glossy counters and stainless appliances

The master bedroom below is also filled with the colors of the sea. (Can you see why I love this home?!) Comfortable, yet entirely elegant.

I hope you guys all enjoyed this home tour! If you too love turquoise hues, I hope you'll come visit me over at House of Turquoise! Coco, thank you so much for asking me to guest blog!

  9. I have to say that this is one of the most elegant, modern decor I have seen in a while. I totally love the black and white, and the sheer white curtains work well to let a lot of light in to brighten up these fabulous rooms. The pictures outside the bookcase in the living room is an awesome idea.
