Shelter Loves

There is something very peaceful about Sunday mornings. I cherish the quiet time at home and usually listen to music, read, clean or cook a healthy breakfast. Today, I was able to spend a few minutes to reflect on the past week and what I've been eyeing or thinking of......xx

1. LSD's lovely Southhampton's home is the perfect blend of vintage and new...It's inviting and cozy. Image via: Vogue. I have an affinity for vintage artwork. 
2.  The Nordstrom Anni sale is going on. I'll pull together and share my picks tomorrow. These sunnies may end up in my card though. 
3. Sezane is exhibiting and selling some wonderful art,,,,I may need this print in my life. The frame was the perfect choice.
4. Travertine furniture. I'm making some change around here. My sofa is currently being recovered and I may need this table to join my living room mix.
5. My August spotify playlist. See below or follow me on Spotify. I share a new "mixed" tape monthly. I have about five concerts this month, I've selected songs from most of them. 
6. Pippa Holt kaftans support women, and an art form. See and read more about Pippa's mission here
7. Amen.
8. I'll be doing some traveling this month and would like to get a new suitcase. I've been eyeing this line, they are made from recycled plastic!

Shelter loves...

1. Topiaries + terracota
2. I am a music junkie. I create random monthly playlists that are a collection of an array of songs and genres of music. 
3. Spa like bathrooms with showers walls created from slabs of marble. 
4. LOVE. This is Athena Calderone of Eye Swoon's gorgeous bathroom. (see additonal images below)
5. Mules are my go to work shoe. I am often sneaking my way past wires and tools on job sites, plus I am on my feet a lot. 
6. These are my "go to" denim cut offs. They are comfy and flattering on all body types. They are also not too short and run a bit large for that easy going summer look...
7. I love photography that captures beautiful architecture. Books are a constant source of inspiration and escapism for me. This image is by Reinhard Gorner. 
8. Green and more greens. I try to eat as clean as possible during the week but sometimes do not eat enough greens, these packets do the trick!
** These pants are another recent purchase...they are super flattering and fit like a glove....

Style edit - favorite summer pieces....

Hola! I had a hectic but very productive three days in Houston...It was ridiculously hot, as you can imagine.

Summer is in full swing in Boston, too. Today, I'm sharing my favorite summer staples and hoping the flight attendant comes by again to refill my wine. I hope your week is going well.

Happy Monday. I'm kicking off the week with my current inspirations and finds.....I'm on a plane to Houston to design a wonderful project and am thankful for the time to catch up on my blogging...Enjoy this balmy summer weather!

1. Shell, stone and beaded necklaces mixed with gold chains. The beautiful texture and natural colors add dimension. This one is a beauty. 

2. Handmade, beautiful objects and hand made items sold at Provincial markets in the south of France. The photo depicted is from the St Remy market.  I'm looking forward to European travel again. 

3. Old, weathered brick used indoor on floors. It's especially gorgeous when paired with a more modern aesthetic. The contrast creates a beautiful tension. 

4. Gauzy, flowing dresses and blouses. I especially love silk. You'll find me outfitted in both, all season long. This top and everything at Warm NY is gorgeous. 

5. Photography of all kinds! I have my eye on this Kate Moss photo by Ellen von Unwerth, Paris. 1989. 

6. I love this idea.

7. Wall coverings that colorfully capture nature in beautiful, rich hues...FerricK Mason

Hello Friday, it's always so nice to see you. Here is what is inspiring me this week. I'm really loving the 70's vibe across the board....

1. Vintage Porsches. I'd go for dark green with a camel interior.
2. Yes, I am watching the Halston mini series but I have always adored his silk chiffon gowns from the early 70's. 
3. Lauren Santo Domingo's house and basically anything she touches. See the rest of this feature on Charish
4. The over-sized mixed media paintings by Eric Blum. This one is made up of ink, silk and beeswax. 
5. Sezane's pretty tops. I just purchased this blouse.  
6. YES!

Fire Island Summer vibes

We are FINALLY having some "season" appropriate weather around Boston and it feels damn good! I'm a fan of Peter Dunham's layered interiors and beautiful textiles. I thought I'd kick off the weekend with this uber cool, modern home located on Fire Island designed by Peter. After a year of minimal travel, I think we're all ready for an escape! The relaxed retro vibe is working for me on this sunny, Friday evening. Cheers! xx Images by: Tria Giovan

Here is last Friday's post and what is on my radar. At the moment, I'm drawn to all things summer and relaxed. xx

1. Jane Birkin's uber cool, relaxed attitude and graceful but edgy fashion sense. I often share her style on instagram and that hair?
2. Garden sheds. I even contemplate moving an office into a space such as this.
4. I agree with this statement. 💖
5. Slides and almost anything from Sezane. 
6. These pretty glasses for Summertime drinks.
7. Modern beach homes like this beauty designed by Peter Dunham. (I'll be posting the rest of this home tomorrow)

Love the look

Today, I'm rounding up my current favorite denim looks. I don't wear a ton of shorts but I do live in cutoffs during the warmer months. I love Mother jeans, they are very flattering and my go to jean.
