Baby, haint, cerulean, turquoise, aqua, or, of course, Carolina! Whatever shade you love best, we just adore blue, blue, blue! When it’s paired with white? Perfection every time!
Blue out the window,
With summer officially here and beach season in full swing, we thought it made sense to tour an amazing beach house today–as if we need an excuse! This home designed by the talented Tory Haynes and built by Dearborn Builders is the perfect mix of updated beauty and that classic, beach cottage chic that makes this the kind of place we would want to come back to again and again.
We’re feeling blue this weekend–in the good way!
With Spring in full swing, it’s time to pay homage to our very favorite shade this time of year: beautiful beach blues.
Ahhhhh….qua. We really think that’s how it should be spelled. Because, out of all the color choices, it’s quite possibly the most soothing. Doesn’t this kitchen just whisper, “You could relax with a quiet cup of coffee here?”
Aqua seems like a very appropriate color choice for this week because a group of friends and I are hosting a baby shower at the Beaufort house! And it’s a…. boy! (Otherwise, the aqua probably wouldn’t seem quite so appropriate…)
But, boy or girl, aqua really is just one of our all-time, all-around favorite colors. Well, I mean, right now. Favorite colors are apt to change, you know.
Aqua is one of those colors that doesn’t feel the need to call attention to itself. Just a hint, like in this living room, is wonderful. And Fresh Flowers like those on the side table are such a luxury!
This bathroom is so fabulous, and that little touch of aqua shampoo adds a little something extra, don’t you think? (We feel like all of you, like us, are the kind of people who would buy a shampoo based on color coordination for the bathroom…)
Swooning over this painting. Carl Hernandez is such a talented artist!
What a dream vanity! The mirror is so stunning and that little aqua stool is just the perfect touch. We’d love to get ready here every morning!
Let’s face it, this bathroom would be phenomenal in any color. Check out that view! The aqua seems to blend right in so beautifully!
I need to know where these chairs are from ASAP. They are incredible. This is just the kind of place where a glass railing is so appropriate. You just have to be able to see that glittering pool below!
Oh my gosh! This might be one of the coolest pictures of the beach we’ve seen! Incredible!!
Both of these lights are so chic. We love beach house decor that ties in all the colors from right outside the door.
What a dreamy kitchen. That one little patch of aqua keeps all of that white from looking boring. (Although, let’s be real, it would still be crazy amazing without the aqua…)
Oh so adorable!
I must have these…
And this! What’s better for summer than aqua toes? Well, maybe aqua toes in the sand…
Wishing you a wonderful (preferably sandy) weekend!
