Shelley Johnstone Design
We looked to designer Shelley Johnstone for decorating advice and tips on hosting guests.
A living room designed by Shelley Johnstone
My passion for design was influenced by my love and interest in architecture.
I'm inspired by travel, art, nature, and architecture. I'm very fortunate to live in a place where David Adler created the most gorgeous homes and his sister Frances Elkins graced the interiors, Jean Michel Frank furnishings included!
I enjoy hosting guests in my home. Small dinner parties either in my dining room or by the pool when the weather permits.
A bathroom designed by Shelley Johnstone
I enjoy giving monogrammed linen hand towels or a lovely coffee table book and chocolates as hostess gifts.
I make my guests feel comfortable by creating a lovely, welcoming home.
My best decorating advice is to work with a professional and invest in quality pieces you love.
My favorite books are lifestyle books. I love "Valentino At The Emperor's Table" and Aerin Lauder's "Beauty at Home."
It is truly lovely and luxurious to wrap yourself in Frette sheets and towels.
I really love cotton percale sheets.
My bedside table has fresh flowers, Aerin Lauder's brass peony and a small ceramic dish from Capri.
