Shelter Design & blog - Julie Richard's Home

Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year.
I found out about Julie Richard's home through Absolutely Beautiful
.  Julie Richard is an interior designer north of Boston.  Her design 
firm and blog is called Shelter.  I absolutely fell in love with her home.  
My own design taste falls very similar to hers in that it is eclectic.  
Definitely check out her post for more photos.  In the meantime, here's 
a sneak peak.  Love this chair above with the plush velvet and silver nail 
heads.  The pillows are so fun!

Love the midcentury modern styled lamp bases and the white fish vase!  
I actually have the same exact Fleur de Lys mercury glasses. 

Julie completely overhauled this small console.  She lacquered it black 
and replaced the hardware with chinoise influenced handles.  Totally

The small vases have such gorgeous color - 
especially juxtaposed next to the roses.

One of my favorite things is Julie's Inspiration board.  Just awesome.

Hope you all enjoyed a peak at Julie's house.  Remember to check her
blog out if you're interested in seeing more photos.  What is your 
favorite thing from the photos above?

I'm drawn to the mirror above the console, but the whole look is very very nice.

Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea
shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed
the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally
off topic but I had to tell someone!
