In the kitch…

I’ve been pulling together a kitchen design today and came across this stunner while searching for bar stools. (I am always on the hunt for comfortable stools that I have not seen 1,000 times). The warm details and interesting mix of textures and materials won me over with this one! Now to locate the source of those stools….

Ruthie Sommers in Veranda

I have long loved Ruthie Sommer’s design work. I was thrilled to see her latest project in this month’s Veranda. The entire July-August 2017 issue does not disappoint. Her mix of prints and unexpected color choices are beautiful. I too love to use unique palettes and we are not afraid of color over here at Shelter! This Newport, summer home (imagine-gah) was designed for a friend of Ruthies’. It is a perfect example of classic design with a modern twist. The vibrant contrasts and repeated patterns are fabulous!! Enjoy…..

Shelter loves sneak peek…

Promise to be back with the full version of “Shelter Loves” later today (or tomorrow) my computer is having some technical difficulties since downloading the Sierra software..grrr. I’ll will leave you with this……I know you have all seen the fun sculptural “Cult Gaia” bag, now it’s available in an acrylic tortoise version! You like??  Yay or nay.

2. Sometimes you just need a good cry and a reminder that everything is going to be okay. It usually is but life can throw you some curve balls.
3. Nordstrom’s HUGE anniversary sale ends tomorrow!!!! Get the goods while you can. These Rag and Bone cutie booties are still available!!!
