About Me

I like peaches. 
I like cake.
I like summers at the lake!

Megan, age 5 

Welcome to Peaches & Cake!

I’m Meg and this where I share interior design inspiration, DIY projects, stories about motherhood, delicious recipes, and entertaining tips.

Growing up, I spent many weekends at flea markets and garage sales and developed a taste for the thrill of the hunt. Combining my degree in art history from Cornell University with the design skills honed while renovating my 100-year-old home, I love to help people design functional family-friendly spaces on modest budgets using a mix of high and low furniture and accessories. I love color, pattern, and beautiful antiques and I can’t pass up a good DIY project. My work has been featured in Apartment Therapy and I’m an interior design student at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

I’m live in River Forest, Illinois with my super-darling husband who is a dermatology resident (for that reason I choose to not mention his first name directly on the blog), our babe Oliver, and our golden retriever Nell. You can find pictures from our July 2011 wedding here. In my free time I love hosting dinner parties, hiking, antiquing, crafting, and spending time with my huge family in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin (the lake mentioned in the poem above). Oh, and I’ve never met a scoop of ice cream I didn’t like. :)

Please feel free to contact me with comments and questions. You can like Peaches & Cake on Facebook, follow along on Twitter and Instagram, and check out what’s inspiring me on Pinterest. Hope you stay and linger a while!
