My blue/green home

I had the opportunity to recently get to know a fabulous photographer named Ashlee Raubach.  I am so impressed by her talent and passion for photography!  Her blog is  Here you will be able to see her amazing talents!  Below are a few pictures she took of my home, which I like to call my blue/green home.

This is my kitchen, I used turquoise subway tiles next to ashy-white painted cabinetry with white carrera marble.

This is my master bath.  I love Bouvet hardware, vintage chandeliers from France, old ladders and soft green sea foam paint.

Ashlee loves to take pictures of detail, which I'm all about when it comes to designing or building a home.  Crystal glass knobs from "Anthropologie" and vintage French details coupled with mercury glass is my passion!

As you can tell my husband and I are obsessed with anything French, Swedish or Belgium.  We had so much fun building and designing this home.  Notice the lumpy, uneven pillows... yes... that was my husband who made the bed right before the shoot; I happened to be out of town at the time.  You got to love the husbands who try so hard :)

Here are some pics Ashlee did for a Bridal shoot... Isn't the Bride beautiful!!!  I love the vintage dress!

Ashlee you're amazing!!!!


  1. Stunning! I love swedish, gustavian design. your home is absolutely stunning! Thanks for sharing your home. lulu

  2. I just recently discovered your beautiful blog! It is so inspiring. We are renovating (slowly, painfully slowly!) a "French style" ranch home in the midwest. Would you mind sharing your paint color choices ... the white walls and putty-tone trim are so pretty! I would really appreciate it! ~Ana

    Thank you for the compliment! I'm so excited for you in your renovation... it sounds like fun! If you ever have any questions I would love to help. The colors I used for my home are from the "Flamant" paint color book. If you get online and go to you will find all the colors I used. "Flamant" is a store in Paris, France I came across; it's the perfect mix of Belgium and French decor... you will love it!!! All the wood in my home is poppler, I used a stain that is a French/gustavian gray/blue. I don't have the exact name for this stain because my painter and I mixed different colors to get the right look. I will contact my painter and get the exact name of the stain. The white walls is called "cool ashes" from the "Flamant" paint line.
    I wish you all the best!!
