did you see Meg Ryan's home?

The actress, kicking back in her minimalist Martha's Vineyard pad.

I don't read Elle Decor magazine. But I saw this article about Meg Ryan's home on yahoo. 

I loved it.  Her home is her home. 
It is what it is.  

If you've read some of the blogs I've read. Her clean white slate, cottage , horizontal wood walls--- perfect!  Looks like something Layla at the Lettered Cottage might have designed.  

She even has the * ephemera   that is so popular in  homes right now; 
with her big metal lettered 'flowers' 

and yet the Author of this article calls it ' un-perky'... Hello!  Does your house have to be perky? REALLY?! 

I read the comments that people have left at the bottom of this article. 
"It needs more color" ? Her style is minimalist-- cottage--- not fussy.  Color--- that would be perky- that would not be minimalist! 

Somebody EVEN commented about her hair?! 

they clearly don't read the same thing I read on the internet! 
They obviously don't get it-- 

This concludes this weeks RANT... 

God bless you 
Thanks for reading my RANT!

People can be so rude sometimes...like just because she's famous she isn't a real person with feelings. I love this place, the linen covers, metal sign, tall open feeling, and I LOVE her hair. I once got mine done like Tina Turner, hee hee! Hey she's 48 and gorgeous, who cares about her hair! Thanks for the little fantasy field trip! Lezlee

I've had to be rethinking my ideas about white. Meg's home reflects her unfussiness.
I'm pretty sure the article wasn't about her hair. Who needs to do it up when they're just hanging out?

Well, thank you. We all have our style and for the most part we like it! Please if you have a chnce answer a couple of my texas questions on my blog. I am kinda confused about your beautiful state. But not about your blog - you are spot on!

Oh the things people say. Sheesh! My mom always said, "if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all!" (And she meant it!) Thanks for the peek, I happen to like her place almost as much as yours!

The Boston Lady said...

Hey y'all! Thanks for answering so many of my questions!! I had guessed the oil burnoff one and Buc-ees will just remain a mystery....

She lives in her home, it should be decorated to suit herself, no one else. Glad you took your blog name back. Yay!
