Weekend Reading :: Shelter Magazine Recommendations

Ah, the weekend. Perhaps you have something fun planned with family and friends, but hopefully you get some downtime to simply relax and recharge. For me, I enjoy reading shelter magazines (big surprise I’m sure!).  Here’s what I’ll be reading this weekend…

Matchbook Magazine - June Issue

Matchbook Magazine’s June issue (digital format) features a not to be missed house tour of design greats (and personal faves), John Robshaw and iomoi’s husband & wife team, Matthew Grenby and Irene Chen.

Can you tell which home is which? They are so different, but I love both styles!

Another online shelter magazine I’ll be reading is this month’s Rue. The issue is focusing on wedding and entertaining, so lots of inspiration for brides. It also features the charming apartment of recent interior design college graduate and my former intern, Michaela Noelle. It’s look into the urban LA studio she shares with a fellow design student. I love how they pulled off so much in such a tiny space. It’s a  fun, eclectic mix of styles.  So proud of Michaela!!!

And in case you missed it, you may want to check out the home tour of designer, Kelly Wearstler in last month’s Lonny Magazine. It’s so Kelly. The space is all glamour, but the images with her boys make it feel like a real home.

Matchbook Mag + Home of Elizabeth McKay

This month’s Matchbook Magazine is not to be missed. The issue features interviews with several inspiring women entrepreneurs including Dabney Lee Woglom (home product designer), Kayce Hughes (fashion designer) and Erin Fetherston (fashion designer).

My favorite however an interview with fashion designer, Elizabeth McKay Jenkins. The Parson’s alum founded the Elizabeth McKay clothing company with women of all shapes and sizes in mind. It’s been a huge success. Matchbook also takes us on a tour of her family home. It’s adorable.

A Curated Look :: Houston Home

My favorite interior last week featured in Matchbook Magazine’s latest issue, was the beautiful home of Bailey and Pete McCarthy. After briefly living in Chicago and Austin, the husband and wife interior design team behind Biscuit Home and the Peppermint Bliss blog settled in Houston. For the home’s design, the couple incorporated  items they’ve been collecting as they moved from city to city. Their curated look is inviting, multi-layered and has a wonderful mix of period styles.

I will say I have never considered my style fearless. My style has evolved over the years and I think it has gotten better and more refined, but it really is just my style. I am flattered that people like it but I am always a little amused when the work is called “fearless”- like maybe I should be afraid of putting it out there because it is testing the boundaries of good taste? Whoopsies. – Bailey McCarthy
