Chic Mountain Retreat

Turner Retreat in Ketchum, ID

Hey guys and dolls! Welcome back from le weekend! I hope everyone enjoyed the chilly but gorgeous past couple of days as much as I did.

I'm usually all sour and embittered about Mondays, but seeing as how this week is a very short one for me, I'm actually pleased as punch : ) Yes, I just said "pleased as punch"...it's ok to judge me.

I'll spare y'all the extensive details, but I had such a wonderful birthday weekend! S gifted me with a trip to the spa for a 1 hour hot stone massage, gorgeous flowers, a delicious dinner at one of our favorite restaurants and some of my coveted Philosophy products from Sephora....in other words, the boy did good ; )

He and my mom also schemed together on a birthday cake, which was a giant cupcake with off-white frosting, silver and gold edible beads and topped with a pink Chanel look-alike purse decoration...perfection! I'll post pics tomorrow or as soon as my camera decides to cooperate.

It was such an amazing day and I truly appreciate all of the sweet well wishes from all of you fabulous vixens too!

So I recently ran across this AH-MAZING spread in Elle Decor and wanted to feature it on here today, for any of you that haven't seen it yet.

Meet the Ketchum, Idaho mountain retreat of Rusty and Mary Lynn Turner...

Inspired by a love of all things French and repeated visits to Provence, this rustic oasis boasts a 1,000 square foot great room, hand-selected ceiling beams and loads of natural lighting.

Designed by Turner and her daughters Marie and Emily, this chic retreat is nestled smack dab in the middle of the soaring Sawtooth Mountains.

The combination of steel and oak helps to balance the Old World and the New.

Although few of us are so lucky as to own a weekend house like the Turners', it doesn't mean we can't pull elements into our own living spaces to recreate a similar feel.

 Don't forget about the High Heels High Hopes event tonight at Maude...it's the perfect opportunity to finish your Christmas shopping AND help a great cause!

P.S.- Tomorrow I'll be showing pics of my Christmas tree, so be sure to stop by and take a peek!

Be blessed, lovelies-
