Guys, 1. thank you so much for the encouraging words on yesterday’s announcement you are really the best and  2. you need to pick up a copy of Carrier and Company: Positively Chic Interiors. I have not been more excited about a book since Markham Robert’s Decorating the Way I See It, or maybe Tom Scheerer Decorates

Carrier and Compan 1

I received an advance copy last night and read it cover to cover. I texted my friend Hanna telling her to pick up a copy (of course she already had because she’s chic and in the know like that) because Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller just get it. I mean, their clients include names that start with Anna and end with Wintour… need I say more?

Carrier and Company 2

The interiors, of course, are beautiful, but what really resonated with me is their philosophy. I love a beautiful space as much as the next design enthusiast, and have plenty of coffee table books filled with pretty pictures, but when there’s actually substance accompanying them, those are the books that end up dogeared and well worn on my shelves.

Carrier and Company 5

A favorite quote: “Life does not have to be perfect. Furnishings and possessions do not have to be perfect.”

Carrier and Company 4

Let’s get an Amen prayer Emoji in here for that! Although, I happen to think the furnishings and possessions in the room above (which I’ve blogged about before) are pretty perfect.

Carrier and Company 3

Trust that if I woke up early this morning to take photos with my “real” camera in the midst of a move it’s worth your while to pick up a copy of this one!


Lindsay Speace Interior Design | ginger jars
I hinted I had some personal news earlier this week and am excited to finally come clean… It’s time to pack up the ginger jars because we’re moving to Raleigh!

It still feels surreal to type as we haven’t had much time to process–Garrett accepted a transfer within his agency earlier this month and the past few weeks have been a whirlwind of searching for a new home, packing up our current apartment, and tying up loose ends in advance of our moving date–just over a week away!

We’re so excited for this next adventure, and truth be told, have been considering our long term options for quite some time as we weighed the reality of the currently crazy DC real estate market with our future goals of starting a family, etc. This New Englander always thought she’d be heading back up North, but I’m truly looking forward to life further south of the Mason Dixon and have only heard the most wonderful things about our new city.

Over the past 6.5 years (!) DC has been the backdrop to so many firsts and periods of transition in our lives. There’s much that I’ll miss: the charming row homes, the museums, the restaurants; and many things I won’t mind leaving behind: the traffic, expense, and sometimes seemingly singular focus on career, success, and achievement which is inspiring, but also exhausting.

Speaking of career, in case you’re curious, I’ll be hanging out my shingle in Raleigh! Of course it’s a bit scary to start over after feeling like I’ve just gained momentum here, but thankfully it’s only a quick drive or flight away, so I’ll be back in the DC area twice a month to oversee current projects that I would have been so sad to leave behind. I’m sure it won’t be without its challenges, but I think it will be the best of both worlds as we transition and technology really has made things easier than ever.

I’m planning to do a more reflective post on DC and my favorite spots as we get closer to the move (let me know what you’d like to hear about!) but in the mean time, I’d love to hear from any North Carolinians!

On to the next chapter!


Lindsay Speace Interior Design | Botanicals

Oh, hey! Sorry for going off the grid…again! All will be explained later this week, but in the mean time, remember those antique botanical book plates? They were framed and installed last week and I just love how they turned out.

You can sneak a peek at some of the fabrics we’ll be using in the space in this snap I took prior to the presentation, and some of the decor here. Excited to see this project taking shape!

P.S I promise it’s just my iPhone skills that are crooked and these are actually straight in real life! 😉
