Hooray! We made it to Friday. Yesterday, we got 11 inches of snow. I was happy to have the hubby and my older son to help shovel. It was not an easy task. They did an amazing job. Everyone is back to there normal schedule today so I thought I better get back to blogging. Lately, I have too much time on Instagram.

Then I found images of Kate Schelter’s apartment for Domino Magazine,
Schelter has worked as a street-style photographer, fashion stylist, brand consultant and designer for David Netto, Bonpoint, House of Lavande, Vogue, and Sleepy Jones. But these days, Schelter is best known for her evocative watercolor paintings, which capture glimpses of a stylish life— think handbags, shoes, vintage cars, and sidewalk cafés. She had her first solo exhibition, curated by John Derian, and began the first of a series of graphic wall murals for her friend Jeff Klein’s landmark new hotel project, San Vicente Bungalows, in Los Angeles.
Schelter always paints her watercolors from life.

Schelter painted a mural of geraniums (her favorite flower) along the shared wall of the master bedroom and nursery.
Schelter’s improvisational aesthetic informs every corner of the family’s loft, where she and her husband, Chris Schumacher, are raising their two-year-old daughter, Charlotte. Though there’s a unifying color palette (shades of pink, which Schelter uses like a neutral), the overall atmosphere is one of freewheeling ease.
Pink you have my heart. Kate Schelter’s apartment is current, classic and chic. “We move things around like it’s a sport.” says Schelter. Design is about having fun.
