Are we all feeling smoochy after yesterday? I so figured. Today we have a very serious guest. Seriously stylish, y'all. Meg Lonergan of LeSueur Interiors is sharing her favorite space which happens to be her master bedroom. I don't know about you, but I always find this space to be the most difficult to design. Why? Because I think it is one of THE most important rooms in a home. It has to be your calming sanctuary after the hot mess that we call life. This place is just that and more. Meg is one of the most talented designers at this very moment and I am thrilled she is sharing her space with us!
Hello everyone, I'm Meg Lonergan of LeSueur Interiors. Lindsay, thank you so much for inviting me to participate in your Favorite Room Feature. My favorite room in our house is definitely our master bedroom. We spend so much time in here, it makes me feel calm and relaxed after crazy work days!
It was the very last room in our house that I finished, which is often the case I find with my clients too. For some reason everyone prioritizes their living/dining rooms before their masters, even though they spend the majority of their at home time in their bedrooms. It was worth the wait though, during my pregnancy I spent every weekend, totally exhausted, laying down in that bed! Then the first half of last year, we spent countless hours as a family napping, hanging out, feeding our baby Julian in our bedroom.
At Round Top antique fair one year I found this almost pair of French Louis Phillipe chests, which serve as wonderful storage in our 1910's home where closets are very limited. My glass lamps were a Target score, the rectangular linen shades make them look not so inexpensive. The bamboo blinds were also a $38/each Target find, but paired with custom silk draperies they look even better! I stumbled upon the numbered and signed Louisiana Blue Heron etchings at my favorite thrift store (custom re-frame job). The chandelier is an old one from from France, purchased from Janet Wiebe Antiques in Houston. We installed wall to wall seagrass which is so durable and practical, and I love layering old Persians in my projects, the one in my bedroom is a Khotan with a pomegranate motif.
My ottomans are actually mid century Henredon side tables that I found at the Guild Shop in Houston. I had my faux painter paint them, and then I had my upholster make tufted tops for them out of a taupe mohair.
The bedding is a combination of custom Christopher Farr Euro shams, hand appliqued monogram shams by my local seamstress, a Hamburg House matelasse coverlet and a Restoration Hardware quilt folded at the end of the bed. My dust skirt was made from $6/yd burlap! My sheets of choice are Sferra's Francesca. The paint color is Farrow & Ball's Lime White, and trim is Martin Senour's Pelham Gray Medium Light.
I adore this crazy Queen Anne Wing chair from one of my favorite dealers in Dallas, Leslie at Again and Again. It's upholstered in an Osborne and Little purple wood herringbone, kinda hot for Houston, but loved the texture so much I had use it. Andrew Martin pillow on the chair, Ballard mirrors on the wall. For me, it's all about the high low - high low, you can justify a pricier choice (like the O&L fabric, on a chair that you find for a deal!)
