Peace in Aqua

I borrowed these images from one of the blogs that I am truly, madly, deeply devoted to- Erin Olson's House of Turquoise. These images are of rooms by husband and wife team Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller. 

I am not sure what it is about this sea foam blue color that I am so inexorably drawn to. 
I felt the pull stronger than ever when I first moved to Chicago 3 years ago. Looking back now I remember looking at Lake Michigan in the dead of the coldest winter and thinking what a truly beautiful color it was. 

I was so tempted to swathe my entire first floor in this color, but somehow it felt too.... well...., blue. Sad in some way. I think I was home sick. I settled on touches here and there but warmer tones prevailed. 

I am headed home to Sydney in 5 short months  and that "blue" has gone out of the aqua and I just can't get enough of it. My new house in Sydney will be a tribute to Erin Olson- A House of Turquoise! I will need all the reminders I can get of Chicago and the amazing crystal blue of the Great Lake Michigan. 


  1. WOW! Thank you so much for the mention! Isn't it amazing how something as simple as color can take you back to a certain place or favorite feeling?? Such a beautiful blog entry to match the beautiful photos! :)
