You would have to swear this gorgeous home featured in Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles and photographed by Mali Azima was the achievement of a renowned designer. Well I was surprised to learn on Verdigris Vie that it was designed entirely by the homeowner, Elizabeth Elsey, a nurse for over 20 years. Not surprisingly, however, is that she is inspired by all the colors of the beach...especially all spectrums of blue, from the water to the sky. Soul sister all the way! I'm just loving the gorgeous dining room. (Walls: Farrow & Ball Oval Room Blue over Farrow & Ball Light Blue in custom strié finish. Trim: Benjamin Moore Bavarian Cream.) And the custom hand-painted screen by Raymond Goins is stuff my dreams are made of!! Read all about the home and see more beautiful images over here!

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend!! Let the summer begin!! :)
