I actually met Megan before we moved, when our kids were in kindergarten together. I discovered she also loved design and found her blog. She recently had a baby and moved into a new home (busy girl!). Fortunately, I emailed her about this series just before they started packing up, and she graciously snapped some pictures for me to share.
Our humble abode is a cape cod style home built in 1940. It’s located in the cutest little downtown of Belmont, NC.
My super laid back and hardworking husband, Gray,
Our very talkative and energetic six-year-old son, Avett,
Our newest three-month-old baby boy, Myer,
Our loving, jumping, trash-eating two-year-old English Golden Retriever, Jake,
And me, an HR professional by trade and business owner/home decorator by love.
Eclectic/transitional. I love to scour antique malls for timeless pieces, find deals through Craigslist, estate sales, and yard sales for quality furnishings that I can reupholster time and time again, and then throw in some affordable modern elements that I can source from the comfort of my living room. I love a home that is cozy, comfortable, and beautiful. I appreciate statements whether it be in paint color, wall coverings, or textiles and have been trying to do more of it in both my home and my clients’ (see black master bedroom!). I’m excited to be even bolder in our new home and hope Emily will let me come back to share!
The character! Think bookshelves, china cabinets, built-in armoires, cedar closets, aged hardwoods, thick trim /molding. Oh, and the windows—so many of them! During the day, our home is filled with sunlight and at night, lit up by my lamp obsession.
