A Blog Shout-Out and Dream House Tour

For a couple weeks now, I've been wanting to share with you all a new blog I recently started following called House of Turquoise. Have you heard of it?

The author, Erin, blogs about home-related design that centers around the color turquoise (of course) plus other shades of blue, and she even includes rooms that use blue as an accent. So, if you don't like the color blue (or bright, bold colors), her blog may not be your cup of tea. But for me, I love it. I think it's so fun and inspiring. Here are two examples:

Anyway...what I really wanted to share with you were some of the images that Erin posted on her blog last week when she did a 5 day tour of the dream home that one of her readers, Christi, and Christi's husband, Jeff, built.

Their dream home took them a year and a half to complete from the design and concept stage to the certificate of occupancy. They selected Hatfield Homes to bring their vision to life. Cristi may not be a designer, but it should come as no surprise that she does indeed have an artistic background. She's not only musical, but is also a photographer by profession (see her blog here) and she has her own Etsy Shop.

While the colors (including Turquoise!) and decor may not be exactly what I would choose for my own home, what I LOVED about this house was the way Jeff and Christi made their design concept flow into every square inch of the house. Attention to detail is very apparent as everything selected for the house fits together so coherently.

So, here are just a few of the pictures represented on the 5 day tour. Click on each day below to be redirected to Erin's blog and see additional pics she posted each day as well as references to where all the items were purchased. Enjoy!
