SUZANI'S!!!!

Ok y'all, anyone in the market for a gorgeous Suzani, straight from Tajikistan? I have a buddy from high school, who had been living in Tajik for a few years and hooked me up with these amazing antique and semi-antique suszani's! Doesn't get more authentic than that! They are at my booth at MAI, but I thought for those of you out of town, you might want to see them too! Let me tell you a little about each one...

This one is, 'Big Red'. Antique, over 100 yrs old. Size: 4'5'' x 6'9''. Email me for pricing. These iphone photos don't do this a justice. The stitching is amazing and the colors are beautiful.


All of these would be perfect made into ottomans or just lying on the end of a bed.


This one is my favorite...my absolute favorite. The colors are SO unusual, and this would totally make a room. This one is also an antique, older than 100 yrs.


This one my dealer is calling, "Big Purple/Green/Gold Boy" - Size: 5'3'' by 9'9''. Email me for pricing!





This one would also be really fun in a freshman at LSU's dorm room! If the budget wasn't typical dorm room budget...haha!

This one is the 'Watermelon & Green Northern Fella' (my dealer says 'red' but that accent color is more watermelon!)



This one is a semi antique, about 75-80 yrs old and the size is: 4'5'' x 6'9''. Email me for pricing info.



The colors in these last two are super fun and would fit in any traditional or contemporary space!




Ok, last but not least, "Purple Gold Northern Girl" measuring in at: 4'6'' x 6'10''. Email me for pricing. I suspect this one might be the first to sell, the colors are just SO much fun. And an ottoman out of this would be the most exciting thing to happen to anyones living room, I promise you!

Even though it's a semi-antique, the black diamond boarder seem so modern! I love that detail.

I also love that Emerald green/turquoise in it too.



Ok friends, email me if you have ANY questions at all or are intersted in the prices on these. My email is: meg (at) lesueurinteriors (dot) com. Have a lovely forth of July, we're jetting away but will be back soon!

Better Homes & Gardens Shoot

Last week I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Better Homes & Gardens magazine on a photo shoot at our home! It was honestly a dream come true and I feel so fortunate to have had this experience early in my career. I had every intention of shooting little mini videos and interviews of everything happening, but of course it was crazy all day and I never really got there. But next shoot I'll make sure to make time for videos! I thought y'all might like to see some of the 'behind the scenes'! You have to make a huge mess to get some pretty pictures! Before we styled or got to the living room

Photography equipment was everywhere, it was SO high tech, I was so impressed with the gear!



The ever-so-sweet and talented Kim Cornelison working her magic. You will probably remember Kim's work from seeing her amazing condo here. Who could forget her precious Tibetan Terrier Walter?!



It hadn't rained in Houston in like 195 days or something insane like that, of course the day of the shoot it poured. There was a lot of amazing faux sun going on in that hallway later on!



Suddenly our bedroom and bedside tables became the catch-all for extra lamps, flowers, chairs etc. You would not believe the stuff I have in this house. I should offer everything up in my attic for sale one day.


Kim's husband and partner Alfie and super cool LA based stylist Char fixin' up the front porch. I couldn't help out there in that 100% humidity otherwise my already flat hair would have even been worse!


It finally stopped raining for about 30 minutes so we could get our front porch shot! Tim and I sat on the front steps and drank a beer while they set up!



I'll make sure to let y'all know when the issue runs. It was SO much fun working on this shoot, and I hope to get to do it again soon! Not to mention it was the best excuse to totally finish and fix up my own house! Thanks a million to Susan Fox, Char Hatch Langos, Kim Cornelison, Alfie Ferreyra, Amy Panos and of course Better Homes & Gardens!

Pink Skies

These images are just gorgeous. I can't get enough of that pink sky.

Sorry I've been so MIA. This week was wild...in a good way! I worked on my first photo shoot with Better Homes & Gardens Magazine and it was a whirlwind! I"ll show you some behind the scenes pictures and let you know how it went next week! For now, I'm playing catch up on work and spending time with family all weekend! x M

Deep Sea Fishing

One of the most fun days I've had in years was a few months back when we were in the Coromandel, New Zealand. Tim and I chartered a boat along with my parents and we went deep sea fishing for the day. I had never fished in the open ocean before, it was a blast! The colors were so inspiring I am still dreaming of them and just had to show you all these photos. The turquoises, blues, oranges, and greens. That seaweed! And of course the colors of the fish were beautiful too. If you ever get a chance to do something like this on a holiday, I highly recommend it!






Maori lady rock.





That water color.







We caught fresh scallops! Tim was in charge of pulling them in...





These two are hilarious.















Tim caught a smaller kingfish, we had to throw him back since he didn't make the size cut.


Uh oh, Dad has something! Something strong!




Our guide John was convinced Dad had a massive kingfish on the end of that pole!




Unfortunately that damn kingfish ended up breaking the line... Dad gave it a good 40 minute fight though!



Lots of sailors! That sky color is NOT photoshopped!




When we arrived back at the wharf, we saw this massive sword fish that was caught in the same waters we were fishing!


Mom and Dad making dinner with the fresh scallops we caught that afternoon!


Such a blast, something I'll never forget! If you ever find yourself in that part of the world, these guys should be able to help you out! Oh, and we stayed at this really great lodge.
