Meg Lonergan

Remember way back when I blogged about my love for all things Expedit?  The last image of the post was my favorite.  I was blown away by how the look of a relatively inexpensive item was elevated by stacking the four Expedit units together and topping them with a federalist mirror.  Only problem was I couldn't give proper credit.  Until today.  Meg Lonergan, you ROCK!

The November Better Homes and Gardens has an awesome article showcasing her beautiful bookshelves and wonderful, eclectic sense of style.  Her entire portfolio (LeSeurs Interiors) proves that a well collected home doesn't have to cost a fortune.  It also shows that the unexpected is what truly makes a room sing. You can visit her entire portfolio here.  For now, check out these tasty snippets from her 1910 bungalow...

New sofa meets recovered junk chairs meets $20 side tables.  Awesome!

That awesome stacked Expedit topped with a thrift store mirror.

Be still my beating heart... do you see the greek key trim detail in the curtains above?  Sigh.  You know how I feel about greek key.  And don't EVEN get me started on the lucite chairs.  It's my number one choice for an office chair!

Again, a thrifted beauty... she simply reframed the gorgeous heron print.  Perfect!

I LOVE navy in the nursery.  I could sit in this room for hours...

Happy Halloween!  I hope you are safe and warm wherever you are.

Rainy Days...

Oh, friends.  Thank you to all for the gentle nudges and sweet encouragement to return to my blog.  For a while, life became BEYOND busy and I fell off the blogging wagon.  Actually, I stopped even reading blogs.  And then something happened... I missed you.  So the other day, I hopped back online and guess what I found?

Alicia and Andy adopted sweet, sweet Amelia...

Modern Hepburn is still reading my mind and posting delicious images...

Kelly (or rather her Amish crew) finally built her carriage house...

Sarah at Saipua is still living my dream... in a farm-house (the way I'd probably do it... constantly knee-deep in the remodeling process), creating floral arrangements that make me want to cry...

And Jenny still writes stuff that makes me want to pee my pants (just try looking at the cat halloween costumes while drinking milk.  I dare you.)

One more miracle?  You're still visiting.  Maybe you're just checking to make sure an obituary won't show up or maybe you're still hoping to hear from me, but you're here.  So thanks.


xo, k

PS.  Here's what I did today...
