My latest hobby obsession is creating these custom Etsy banners. I love filling each tiny 760 x 100 pixel canvas (teeny!) with gorgeous, vintage inspired designs. An easy way for Etsians to update the look of their shop and build a brand identity. Available at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/wharfie79  (my Etsy lurker ID).

Summer always makes me feel like wearing white sun dresses and crisp white shirts with cut-off denim shorts. The best colour to compliment this is of course turquoise. One of the best examples of wearing white with turquoise has to be Eva Mendes.

Eva was a vision in white at the 2009 Golden Globe Awards. The actress hit the red carpet in beautiful white silk Dior dress and turquoise statement necklace by Van Cleef & Arpels. The outfit was put together by stylist Rachel Zoe. Nothing is more gorgeous then a statement piece of turquoise jewellery:

It’s raining here today and I love it! I slept in late and I’ve spent the afternoon listening to music and blog-hunting.

Which is whyI’m sending out some blog love to the House of Turquoise. Not only is it a blog all about my favourite colour but it also has beautiful style and design ideas. All of the following images are featured on the blog.

See more of Suzanne’s house here.

I think Margot Austin’s house is my favourite though. It’s actually designed as a teenager’s bedroom! I’m sure I could act like a teen again, if this is where I get to gossip with my friends, study for my assignments and whisper about boys!

Finally just a little shout out to this gorgeous little desk space. The wallpaper is to die for!

Be sure to show some blog love at House of Turquoise.
