The Best List: Basket Light Fixtures

17th July 2015

Basket light fixtures have totally captured my heart. They add just the right touch of ease and texture into a kitchen or dining room. They make a big statement but there are lots of great options which are easy on the wallet too! I really love them paired with a modern kitchen with plank doors. This kitchen below is pretty fab, don’t you think?!

If DIYs are your thing, here is great tutorial by Emily Henderson and another one by Young House Love.

Check out my top picks below of hanging woven pendant lights!

Serene Outdoor Spaces

10th July 2015

I’m officially the worst blogger ever – haven’t blogged in a while! I’m knee deep in some fun projects so the blog has taken a back seat for now. Thank you for your comments on my last blog post. Seems like a new blog name is in order soon!

Let’s take a little friday breather and peruse some beautiful serene outdoor spaces. I’m feeling this palette of neutral with pops of black and a backdrop of greenery. My yard here in California is looking more brown than green these days (to save water) and more colorful (um, we have a few toys out there, just a few). These spaces have me doing a double take, they look so relaxing and serene! All of these can be found on my outdoor living board on pinterest.

Personal Update

26th June 2015

Hi guys! It’s been a while since I’ve blogged, sorry about that. I’ve got a lot of fun projects to work on right now and its summer time… so whenever I have a free moment I’m trying to get outside (read: my toddler begs and points and jumps at the door until we go outside!).

I haven’t really talked much about myself on this blog, and I thought it might be time to change that. Of all the blogs I read, I like the ones that have personal updates about the writer but I’m usually too afraid to do that with my blog!

I’ve been working with a wide range of REALLY awesome clients on their homes here in the bay area. I run my own very small interior design business and I’m also an interior designer with homepolish. So I have some AMAZING & cool things I’m working on right now, a couple of kitchens & bathroom remodels, some virtual clients, some good ol’ fashioned decorating jobs, and I also have the pleasure of helping my friend with her new home up in Marin. I’m working really hard and loving it.

I feel so fortunate I can be working on something I love and can balance with being a mom. It ain’t always pretty shlepping samples around, getting stuck in bay area traffic, and working on weekends – but every job has their moments right? I truly love it and couldn’t ask for anything more (except 2 more hours in every day, that would be nice).

Also I’m thinking for a while of updating the name of this blog/website to reflect more where I’m at professionally now – to Megan Bachmann Interiors. What do you think – yay or nay?

Rebecca Taylor’s Stunning Beach House

8th June 2015

Blue… check. White… check. Natural materials… check. I fell for this perfectly imperfect beach home of Rebecca Taylor on Shelter Island in New York. It looks like such a perfect little getaway house for a family to relax, don’t you think?
When I wanted to put together a “Get the Look” for this house… I found EVERYTHING at One Kings Lane! I love that it is one-stop-shopping for all things home. They have gorgeous new and vintage goods and now they accept RETURNS on all merchandise!!!
