Thursday was a gorgeous, fun day for the Newport Harbor Home and Garden Tour. My best friend Lisa came down from Calabasas for the day, and we had the best time!!
The first house we toured was on Flower Street, and was one of our favorites. It had a lot of vintage touches and a beautiful paint color in the main living area that everyone was raving about called "Healing Aloe" by Benjamin Moore. Loved the ruffly umbrella and chairs in the pool. Inside and out it was a treat to visit. Next, we headed over to the church to catch the OC Cruiser and headed over to beautiful Bayshores. Nice designs that included work from Barclay Butera Interiors and Molly Wood Garden Design.
We then stopped for lunch and shopping at the Newport Theater Arts Center. Beautiful friends and panoramic views highlighted our yummy lunch catered by StoneFire Grill. All of this could not have happened without all the wonderful volunteers who organized and helped out throughout the day. Shopping is always a treat, especially when it benefits such a great cause as the Newport Harbor Educational Fund. Lisa found 3 large and gorgeous glass candle holders from MerMade Designs (see below), that were encrusted with all sorts of seashells. They look great in her house.
