For anyone that knows me, or has seen my work, color is of HUGE importance to me and my work. Color is synonymous with emotion and that being said, I crave it.

No color is off limit and quite frankly, the correct, unique pairings of color can make or break a space. Success as an Interior Designer with color depends on a cool and unflinching confidence.

One of my favorite colors of all time is TURQUOISE. It is youthful, refreshing, hip, sophisticated, calming, and enthusiastic all at the same time.

I mean….doesn’t a beautiful ocean view of a compilation of turquoise waters just make you happy??!

Or an Essie “Turquoise and Caicos” mani just make you smile? I’m currently sporting this as a new fav.

I love turquoise in all forms…. stone, metal, glass, fabrics…..all pics here from my Buckingham I+D Showroom provided by the amazing photographer, Eric Prine for Lonny Mag. Come back and visit soon y’all!

You can throw on a LBD and add a dose of color with turquoise earrings or a classic white T and jeans and spice up the look with a fun turquoise necklace.

Even add it to purple or magenta like these Hollywood actresses. It is just one of those colors that can accent anything!

I used to think it was only a summer color-this news flash from my Mama Audrey while I was a babe, but now it is definitely a GO-TO all year round! Plus, as an added bonus it is my December birthstone. Thinkin of my AZ roots right about now….and I collect vintage pieces of course :)

And last but certainly not least…cannot forget the turquoise wallpaper statement made in this gorgeous dining room.

Go big or go home- or, go home to your turquoise. Thank you to my clients that share the love of this rich and lovely hue.

Fall has officially come to Chicago, and chilly it is!  Today it barely broke 60 degrees and what does cooler weather mean besides boots, scarves and jackets?  Autumn nail polish, of course!

Today was the first time I got my autumnal manicure/pedicure for the season, and what better color to choose than Chinchilly by Essie!  I discovered this color around this time about two years ago, and it has been a cool weather staple ever since.

Here are some of the colors that I am look forward to painting my nails this fall, and in the spirit of MG, here are some cool interiors to go along with them!
