I Brake For Books About Yard Sales

I'll be the first to admit I'm to lazy to "yard sale". Getting up early on a Saturday to go digging through someone's junk in their yard just doesn't sound appealing. The usual Saturday scenario  for me is to sip my coffee while watching Keeping Up with the Kardashians on the DVR. However, after coming across this delicious little book by Lara Spencer- I may have changed my tune.

  You probably know Lara from GMA. I bet you didn't know that she is full of decorating fabulousness and wrote a book about it. I can't even tell you how much I love this book. She moonlights as an antiques dealer and interior designer. She gives  you tons of ideas of what to look for and how to change it, if needed. 

And, have you seen her house? TDF! Lots of pictures of her fabulous casa in this book. I love every stinking inch of this house.  I did a little research online and found  few different  pictures that give a better full room view. ( Now I sound like a stalker.)

 OOOh- I so love that sofa and those gigantic lamps!!

I love the mix of Regency with Mid- Century funk with some whimsy

I really love her Master Suite. This is slightly different from the book. It looks like she changed out the lamps and added some art above them. A typical designer changing things out.

 This is her daughter Kate's bedroom. I love the accent wall wallpaper. Adorable.

This is her son Duff's bedroom. I never would have thought to put a ghost chair in a boy's room but it works well here.

Definitely buy the book. In the meantime, I'm going to go figure out how I can   become a syndicated morning talk show host so that I too can afford to have my own fabulous home look like this!
