Shelter + GIGI Coffee and Cupcakes

I knew just by looking at the design aesthetic of Shelter that this is my kind of store.

Shelter is a home and design store at the newly opened East Wing of Shangri-la Mall.  Inside, you'll find well curated finds for the home such as designer throw pillows, luxury home fragrances, designer notebooks and note cards, hardcover design books, black and white framed photos, custom-made furniture and beautiful things for the person who loves to entertain. 




Love the print on print design of the custom chairs with the orange throw pillows


Black and white framed photographs of old Hollywood match well with the silver home accessories


Hard bound design books and coffee table books


Fancy notecards alongside hardbound fashion design books


Christian Lacroix notebooks (I love these!)


Love the beach themed pillows.  They make you want to go on vacation!


More inspiration from the sea


Luxury home fragrances from Nest and yummy smelling soaps


More home fragrances from Nest


Lovely things for entertaining!  They make you want to throw a party instantly!


Lovely, lovely glass lamps


They also had some Christmas home accessories that are circus-themed


There are some gift suggestions just in case you have not finished your Christmas shopping yet


Inside Shelter, you'll also find GIGI Coffee and Cupcakes


Now, here's a concept that I love:  In-store dining.  I wish a lot of stores would do this.  A small cafe in the middle of the store makes you want to linger.  While having coffee, your eyes wander some more and before you know it, you're buying something again before you leave (smile).


You can choose from the many cupcake flavors to have with your coffee or tea


I tried the green tea cupcake with the lemongrass tea


While Mickey had the peanut butter cupcake (which is yummy!)


Mickey and I lingered more than the usual and dreamt about a beach house we can fill with beautiful finds from Shelter.

Visit Shelter at the newly opened East Wing of the Shangri-la Mall (at the 6th level) and stop by GIGI Coffee and Cupcakes for some desserts before you go.  For product inquiries call (+63-2) 633-1626.
