This weekend, I was flipping through the November issue of Better Homes and Gardens when I discovered a new-to-me interior designer that, if you don't already know, you should know: Meg Lonergan of LeSueur Interiors. A self-described believer in "floor to ceiling bookshelves, anything with a monogram, and tomato red, olive green, navy blue, turquoise, mustard yellow, and eggplant," this designer is a Southern lady with global tastes. Lonergan shares her inspiration on her blog, LeSueur Interiors Blog, and I've already pored over the older posts.
I thoroughly enjoyed perusing her portfolio on her site because each space had a well-traveled, well-collected and well-considered feel about it. Perhaps you'll agree:
Not surprisingly, Lonergan's own home has style in spades. But what interests me most is her ability to pair high and low items seamlessly. For instance, she found the chairs in her living room in a dumpster (!) and covered them in high-end designer fabric. What an eye!
Needless to say, I love the rest of her home...and I suspect after seeing these images, you will, too.
This designer is also a new mom!
For her son she created a classically-beautiful nursery that would work for either a boy or a girl.

Aren't you in love now, too? Or, perhaps you were already clued in to this talented gal's style!
I'm looking forward to seeing more of Meg Lonergan and LeSueur Interiors soon!
