Space of the week: Turquoise love

When I came across this beautiful open plan space I gasped. It's so light and airy and I love the turquoise! I used to adore this colour and wore it almost everyday and had lots of turquoise bits and pieces in my home, but for some reason I fell out of love with it. But I think I'm ready to start introducing it back into my life. It's so fresh and clean, but vibrant at the same time.

The layout of this room is almost the same as my own living space, except mine is narrower and I don't have such wonderful windows. It's spaces like the one above that remind me that I did the right thing painting my home entirely white, but it's the accents of colour that really bring it to life. I wish I'd chosen a darker sofa (mine is boring beige! but maybe I could have slipcovers made one day...) as I love the contrast of the dark against white.

This is wonderful, its so light and airy and neat, but still quirky. I love the windows, the light floors and the hanging lamp the most. My parents have an antelope head in my dad's office, I never thought I would like one arranged on a wall, but here its unique and sort of out of place in a good way.

I'm really loving the turquoise bar stools! I think this has just provided the inspiration I need for our new kitchen breakfast bar :)

P.S ~ I’ve left you a little award over on my blog :)
