Knock Me Over with a Noodle, Why Don't You

As I fiddle with the finishing touches in our master bedroom, I find myself having a bit of a love affair with Turquoise.

It's quite torrid and sweaty.  Very Doctor Zhivago-esque.

Except without the furry caps.

Or revolting Bolsheviks.

Apropos, I spend a lot of virtual time over yonder, having my socks blown off every 38 seconds.

Which?  Really?  Is kinda annoying.  'Cause my toesies are getting cold over here!











I think I shall procreate purely for an excuse to paint a room one of these delicious shades.  

That's as good a reason as any, right?

Also.  If I could be her, that would be swell.

  4. Lovely pictures - the turquoise is gorg. Also, how come no one thinks I'm beautiful and arty when I stand on my coffee table? Is it the leopard shoes? It must be.

  5. Oh, so Zhivagy. Turquoise seems to always work as an accent color. I love it on other people when they wear a turquoise piece of jewelry. Those rooms are to die for. Great pictures!

  11. I love the turquoise lamps you bought at Target. I was eying them the other day, but Ty was with me and said no. Boo. I guess he was right I don't really have a place for them and they don't really match anything. Details, details.

  13. Too funny - I had to limit my affair with Turquoise (why so hard to spell?) to our bathroom, as it was becoming out of control. Recycled Sea glass was my first fling with the color and it spiraled out of control from there. I can't wait to see your final room product :)

  14. I'm thinking I may just move into your turquoise home with you. Hope that's okay.

  15. Damn...that turquoise stuff is pretty fabulous. Just when I think I've got our home decor figured out, something spectacular like that comes along and messes it all up -- hahaha!
