Love the look - back to school

Holy hell things have been bananas. I've also had some technology glitches! Ummm, how it is already the third week in August?? School starts in less than two weeks here, I need to get on my back to school shopping game! I still like to take the kids out separately. I also use it as a good time to purge their closets of small or trashed I'm sharing my must have back to school pieces for girls. Next up, I'll post for the boys..(although my son is much easier, sport shorts, tshirts, and new sneaks do the trick)

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.....

Cool house, pool house!

Studo-Lifestyle (pictured above) did a fabulous job on the pool house design for a California home. I think I'd just need to move right in for the summer. The clean design, ship lap and steel windows are gorgeous. And the bar window? 👌👌👌 This place is surely pool party ready!

Shelter Loves

Hello loves and happy Saturday. I needed a peaceful work day and I am getting just that. Cloudy days are sometimes a blessing. Hope you're having a splendid weekend. hugs and kisses .... here are this week's faves.

1. Kelly is still one of the coolest cats around. She shares her entertaining tips and some beautiful bar set up photos in this post, this blog is delightful too.
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!!!
4. I am always inspired by travel and designs from afar. This is an African mud cloth pattern that I pinned this week.
5. tees and flares, tees and flares. Yes, please on casual days.

Love the look - Lee Radziwill


A group of us are heading to an Earth, Wind and Fire concert on Saturday night soooo of course I need to wear a look inspired by the carefree 70's. I may actually be able to round up a few things around my house but I'm also heading to a nearby vintage clothing store tomorrow. Authentic pieces that embrace a snap shot in time resonate and intrigue me. I've shared my love of Jackie O's style but her younger sister, Lee Radziwill was equally glamorous and a bit less buttoned up. (which I love!). I've posted Lee's Parisian pied de terre and all it's glory in the past but it's just too good not to share again. I've also created an inspirational outfit for my "love the look" post.  Lee often felt out-shined by her older sis but she was and still is not only stunning but a sophisticated socialite who has worn an array hats! Here's a peek!!
