Design Crush: Lara Spencer

I have to tell you, I have a big crush. A big, big designer girl crush. Ever heard of the name Lara Spencer? Maybe you have seen the book I Brake for Garage Sales...? I know that I have briefly mentioned my mom from time to time on this blog, but she is the person to credit for the discovery of this fabulous designer. Months ago, she mentioned Lara and her awesome aesthetic and her unique talent for picking up old and dated furniture and transforming them into completely custom and glam pieces. I neglected to research any further, sorry Mom. Until this weekend when Lara's show graced the screens of HGTV. I was blown away and definitely was sent to kick rocks. As they always say, Mom is always right.

Does that trellis entryway make anyone else need a defibrillator? Pretty sure my heart stopped. Remind you of a certain trellis wall stencil we discussed last week? Now I am for sure implementing that stencil somewhere in my home. Eat your heart out Kelly Wearstler. So who else is crushing on Lara's bright and collected aesthetic? You know you love her. Don't deny your feelings. XOXO

  7. You are not the only one who ignored her. I was thinking how good could a morning show host be? Then I saw the awesomeness. Those turquoise lamps!

  9. YESSSSS. I watched her show this weekend and died. I called my mom immediately to have her flip on the tv, and then had an immense urge to go thrifting. She's the queen.
