When I think of my favorite of my friend’s homes, Meghan’s is at the top of that list. From the eye-catching use of color to the masterfully mixed patterns in each room, the home perfectly captures Meghan’s cheerful and creative aesthetic. (As the home buyer for Forty Five Ten, it’s no wonder Meghan’s abode is one to envy.) The details are incredible. The polka-dot pillows! The ikat dining room chairs! It’s just a happy home, you know? After spending some time at Meghan’s house the other day, I kept thinking that it was too bad Meghan didn’t have her own blog because her home would definitely be something people would love to see. Bright idea, right? That’s when I decided I should just share it right here. Meghan was nice enough to let me take some photos (thanks, M!) so I could do just that. Enjoy!

Happy Friday! First of all, I want to say thank you for all of the positive feedback and comments I received from my Glitter Guide feature this week. You all are the.best. I was so honored to be included on GG, and what fun it was to give you all a peek inside my apartment! (Thank you also to Kelsey Foster for her amazing photography!)
Secondly, I have received quite a few emails regarding the sources for some of my furniture and accessories. Rather than try to answer each email individually, I thought it might be easier to just include all of the credits for each photo right here. Sound good? (Don’t stop emailing me though. I love to hear from you all!)
Let’s start with that vase up there. It’s Waylande Gregory from Forty Five Ten.

While birthday and Christmas wish lists inevitably change year after year, there is one item that always makes it on to the list: a coffee table book (or four). I’ve told you all time and again how much I adore glossy tomes, but I thought I’d give you all a glimpse at what my little collection has amounted to in the past few years. These books not only keep me entertained and provide endless inspiration, but it just makes me so happy to see the stacks of them lined up on my coffee table every day.
The list really is endless (and ever-growing!), but here are a few of my very favorite coffee table books:
What are your favorites? I always love suggestions.
When it comes to my home, I’ve always gravitated towards bright whites accented by pops of color. Or somewhere in the middle with a light gray paint (my living room), but I’ve never gone any farther than that. Lately, however, I’ve fallen in love with these dark walls I’ve been seeing everywhere. When I moved into my new apartment a few months ago, I actually experimented with a black paint in the powder room. It’s a such a small space, so I figured I couldn’t go wrong (baby steps). I’ve loved it so much that I think I’m ready do this color in a much bigger way. I really like the idea of using it in a library/study like Aerin Lauder
. The black paint adds instant warmth to this room making it feel comfortable and inviting. Can’t you see yourself curling up in here with a good book? I also adore Miles Redd’s kitchen
. The black lacquered cabinetry makes the kitchen looks so glamourous. What do you think?
