simply color: shauna alterio & stephen loidolt

The amazingly fun duo, Shauna Alterio and Stephen Loidolt, of Something’s Hiding In Here, share a magical space in Philadelphia. I was immediately drawn to their plastic deer figurines that are perfectly displayed in the cubby above the bed. The whimsy continues around the room with vintage paint-by-number illustrations, a handmade gingham duvet, patterned pillows, and floral wallpaper. Oh—and did I mention they have a porch swing in there too? The retro colors are a great fit for Shauna and Stephen’s creative and unique home. Be sure to check out the rest of the loft in the original Sneak Peek. —Lauren

    I’ve totally been into blue lately. That blue looks very similar to what we are painting on our main floor.
