Floored by great friends

I am listening to Rachel Hollis' book Girl, Stop Apologizing on audible right now and one chapter talks about how you become the 5 people you hang around the most. Growing up that was my family. That was my pose because as a kid I wasn't popular at all. In fact, some kids were kind of mean to me. I had friends sure, but it was like being acquaintances with everyone and not having a clique per se. That is...

“Joe needs a TV show”

I hear this literally five times a week by complete strangers, as well as those who know him best. Joe has an uncanny ability to make people laugh and enjoy themselves.

If furniture could speak – Nicole Regan

I love the story that comes with the piece and I respect that people are re-inventing it to bring it up to date. To kick off this...

Q&A – Should I re-upholster or buy new?

We get asked upholstery questions all the time and we are happy to give our 2 cents.  By the way, did you know that we offer full upholstery services at MegMade? No? Well you are not alone, clearly we are not amazing at making that known. But the answer is we do offer full upholstery in addition to our private label custom upholstery line. The reason we actually started carrying new upholstery stemmed from people asking us should they re-do what...

6 ways to decorate with the color green

What I have noticed about myself is that I dress with the same colors I decorate with. I love neutrals and basics and then I use a few colors that are go to's in my life to jazz it up a bit. I am like everyone else and love blue and black, but you know what I have noticed lately, I veer towards green! I freaking love green and I am so glad that it is totally always on trend....
