Never in a million years did I plan to take so much time off from my blog! It’s crazy how a tiny new baby can turn your world upside down. If you follow me on Instagram, you know sweet Rosalie entered our lives on November 21st. I’m telling you it has been a roller coaster ever since! Having a baby in the winter has been the worst (especially in Minnesota…especially with the winter we’ve had this year!) and I am so looking forward to spring. After seeing this gorgeous Raleigh, North Carolina home in Fairview Row designed by Claudia Beck Interiors, I can almost feel it!
I was surprised to learn this stunning home (captured by photographer Smith Hardy) is actually a condo; one of fourteen units in Fairview Row–a collection of three newly-built, historically-inspired condominium buildings in the heart of Hayes Barton neighborhood in Five Points. The homes have all the charm of traditional architecture with the best of modern finishes and layouts.
The interior of this home is decidedly traditional, yet it feels light and bright thanks to the color palette of aqua, mineral green and cream that flows throughout.
Doesn’t the striped fabric on the chairs give this timeless dining room such a fresh look?
The formal living room took my breath away!
I’m loving how the designer incorporated the homeowners’ love of the water with coastal artwork. The perfect complement to the color scheme!
The fretwork in the transoms is such a beautiful detail.
Love everything about this powder bathroom, especially the Thibaut wallpaper!
Oh how I’d love to wake up each morning in this master bedroom painted Benjamin Moore 638 Pure Essence. The French doors had me at hello!
I can just imagine how well this beautiful building blends in with the historical homes in the neighborhood. Absolutely gorgeous! You can read all about Fairview Row and see more photos here! Visit Beacon Street Development for even more inspiring homes and neighborhoods!
My first post back wouldn’t be complete without a few pictures of our new little bundle! Meet Rosalie Mae…
Mirabel and Wesley couldn’t love her any more. It’s now been three months (#timeflies) and they are still just as obsessed with her as the day she came home!
So these three cuties are why I haven’t been blogging…I’ve been seriously exhausted! Now that Rosie is sleeping better at night, I’m hoping to post more regularly. (Especially if she figures out that napping is actually a good thing!) I’ve truly missed sharing beautiful turquoise spaces with you all, not to mention keeping up on social media. Feels so good to be back! 🙂
What a sweet little family! Nice to have you back!

Oooh, such cute kiddos! You are truly blessed.
I have a House Of Turquoise home you might be interested in seeing.
Being a mom is the most meaningful and important thing you will do in your life. Take your time and blog when you can:)
Congrats on your new baby! Sweet children! I love your blog!!
Beautiful babies! So happy for you. You are truly blessed!
This house is a showcase of good style, simple fresh clean lines with a enough touches of hominess. Thank you for sharing. You were missed.
So glad you’re back!! Thanks for sharing your beautiful babies!
Welcome back Erin, we have missed you. I was so happy to see a new post when I checked today. Darling children, enjoy every minute, cliched or not, it is true, they grow up too soon. I know there are days that seems impossible! Hang in there winter cannot last forever! Always start my day checking out House of Turquoise. Debbie
God bless your beautiful family. Your children are beautiful!

Your new baby is such a gift to you and the family, that is ok if you haven’t blogged. Your happiness is more important. Judy Marks
I have really missed your beautiful turquoise homes. But, oh, what a wonderful reason to be absent! Your new daughter is as adorable as her brother and sister! ? You are truly blessed. Enjoy every minute with you three little ones, as they grow up too quickly.

I am so glad you are back! I raised three babies, too, so I know how busy you are. But I really missed my “treats” for the day with House of Turquoise” and “Everything Turquoise.” And I love the family pictures; your children are so adorable.

Congratulations! i remember when you had your first little baby. Such a beautiful family.
so very happy you are back with the best turquoise posts ever!!!
What a beautiful family and how did you EVER get little Rosalie to smile just perfect for that shot with her sister!!! So awesome.
I had one of ours the end of Jan. (Also in Mn)
When I FINALLY could take her outside for a walk in her stroller I felt like a NEW person!
Gail Peterson says
I have sure missed you, but totally understand. How beautiful and happy your children are!

What a lucky woman to have three great children. Now, go get the stroller and head over to Como and give them a little primate house fun in return for a stroll through the tropical greenery in the Conservatory. It’s so restorative and calming! A perfect place for mid-morning fun with the trio. A relief from the cold and dreary weather.
For those who don’t live in the Twin Cities. the City of St. Paul has a fab small zoo and gorgeous conservatory and japanese gardens. It has no admission but encourages donations, so rather than feeling that you have to make a big day of it to “get your money’s worth” you canfrequently pop in and spend an hour smiling at the animals or soaking up the beauty of the gardens.
Glad you are back. I look forward to your posts and wonderful photos.
Congratulations! What adorable happy faces to add to you blog. So happy for you, and can totally understand how blogging might take a back seat to the the rest of your life.
