Insta peek and happenings!!

Hello loves! I honestly want to take a minute to say that I look forward to blogging and sharing inspiration with you everyday!! Here is what's going on 'round here.

I took a trip to Memphis a couple of weeks ago. As I mentioned, I had the privilege of meeting Amy Howard. More on that below!

I love layering jewelry, especially bracelets. I also got one more day out of my Lilly Pulitzer jump suit cause the weather was warm in TN....Here are the links on what I am wearing!

1. Tag Watch - similar (I have had this classic watch for years)
2. Bracelet
3. navy infinity bracelet - similar
4. Lilly knot bracelet - this is brand new but not on the site.
5. Denim jacket - similar plus 25% off on Shopbop!!

I'm still a fan of Domino. I love taking the time to peruse a magazine when I fly. I don't do that enough!
I had the honor of having dinner with Amy Howard, people from the Ace team, DBC PR team, my two fellow design experts and a panel of bloggers. It was amazing. Every detail in her home was perfect!! Here's a peek at her living room. Check out the mirrored panels around the fire place. Amy achieved this look with one of her fabulous products. I attended an all day training session with her products, so I got the skinny on it all. Ace Hardware will be selling her line now!! I am soo excited about this.
Let me just begin by saying her philosophy on not only rescuing furniture and making it shine but on life was pretty moving. Our similar back story of being a single parent resonated with me!! Sometimes your life can be flipped upside down but you need to make the most of it!

The lacquer product is like a dream and I had a blast learning how to lime and gild wood!! Stay tuned for the revamp of a dresser for my son! So excited to finish that project up!

Here is a look at her powder room. Amy lacquered the mirror and the wallcovering is by Schumacher. This print is one of my favorites...I am a sucker for anything Chinoiserie. I will never tire of it. (my gawd, I never take selfies)

My pants are from ZARA - similar (you cannot beat their pants for the price tag!) and the top is Tracy Reese - love her clothes!!! (I have had this for some time)

Amy Howard's collection!!! The Amy Howard One Step paint is amazing!!

I attended Erin Gate's bebe shower a couple of weeks ago. It was perfect, they did such a beautiful job. I am so thrilled for Andrew and Erin, we go way back and I adore her.
See more of the images at Elements of Style.

I had this floor painted (project Surf) in a graphic pattern and the kitchen chairs sprayed navy...It's looking good!! Now we are moving onto the dining room!

This kitchen (project West Newton) is almost done. I had shelving installed on the wall of tile...They are hung with brass brackets and look pretty gorge!!! Can't wait to style this and have it photogaphed!!

I spent the weekend at my parent's vacation home. This is the view from the porch!! I always return from VT so refreshed. The mountains and fresh air will do that for you!! Can't wait to get skiing again this winter!

I opened this beautiful bauble for my bday from Matty this morning!! Nice job baby. Available here!! It looks so nice on!
 HAVE A FABULOUS DAY!! xo I appreciate each and every one of you stopping by!

Happy Birthday!!! Love the insta peeks and daily doses of inspiration. Your guy did a fantastic job with your necklace. I meant to comment that you should purchase the J.Crew stadium coat. You will not regret it ! I wore mine during our "brutal" winter last year and it kept me cozy.

My Tag died of old age right after we moved back to the US.
My husband promptly bought me a gorgeous Movado Museum watch which is so much more "classy" to me .. there are soooo many fake Tags out there.

My name: Julie My design firm: SHELTER said...

Thank you Kyle!!
My dream watch is actually a cartier watch but that Tag works for now!!

The mixing of bracelets is beautiful. I'm finding some different designs for the specific combination.
