My First Design Board

I put together a design board with a dresser I have for sale as the center of the room. I chose accessories to compliment and highlight one another. I think this would make a beautiful styled room. Now...if I could find a way to buy it all, I'd do it NOW!

1. Dresser - The Turquoise Iris on Etsy.com 2. Painting by Parima Creative Studio on Etsy.com, 3. Rug by West Elm, 4. Seahorse Lamp by Jonathan Adler, 5. Curtains by Anthropologie, 6. Vase by Vitrified Studio on Etsy.com



This was fun! I will be working on more of these soon.

Antique Yellow Desk / Dressing Vanity

I'm thinking everyone may need a little yellow in their home.  It adds such a happy vibe and gives every room warmth.  

I love how this desk turned out.  Miss Sophie chose the color to match her new bedding in her new room in her new home.  I'm so fortunate to have this job!  Thank you to the Rodgers family!!

Girls Vintage Twin Bed in Mint


Oh, this is so very sweet. Mint + Creme = Perfection

I painted this twin size bed a mint green and highlighted the accents with creme. This includes a headboard, footboard and 2 side rails. 




Some little lady will be so lucky to have this in her bedroom.  I can't wait to see who buys it! It's for sale on my Etsy shop, The Turquoise Iris.

Cobalt Blue and Gold Mid Century Dresser

I may have a new favorite color!  This deep saturated blue is amazing, especially on this mid century dresser.  The original gold bow tie hardware really pops off this color.  I made the art work too, had to use this blue in more than one place! 



OOH LALA!!!


I used "Work of Art" by Clark + Kensington paint for this piece.  It covered beautifully!




This lovely thing is available today on my Etsy site, The Turquoise Iris.

Happy Wednesday!!

The Royal Blue Peacock Buffet

I present to you, Her Royal Peacock.  

This piece turned out very dramatic.  The blue, with the gold, combined with the peacock makes for quite an appearance! 

I think she is just. so. lovely.







This is a poster applied to the doors, not paint.  I sold this piece before I could even post this but I still wanted to share it.  

Have a wonderful weekend!
