A little while ago I came across  on {don’t you think that’s just the cutest little name for a blog}.

The post was about new book titled which will be on sale later this month {March 29th to be exact}. For those of you who may not be familiar with Megan, she is a highly regarded and hugely talented interior stylist who works with clients both here and overseas. Now, I’ve never personally met the fabulous Ms Morton, but I’ve always admired , and I often either read about her on blogs or I hear her mentioned by the people I know. One of my favourite bloggers, Lucy from , often mentions or writes about Megan – in fact you can read her fantastic interview with Megan . My talented friends, Juliette and Sarah-Jane of , have been fortunate enough to work with Megan on one of their award winning interior projects…

The most bizarre thing of all is this – when Husband and I moved into our place in May last year, I received some mail which was addressed to Mrs Megan Morton. Weeeeird, right? {Queue music from Twilight Zone}. Yes, you guessed it – turns out that Megan used to live in the apartment we are living in right now.

So why is this so interesting? I don’t know, I thought you might like my little story. The reason for my post was quite simple – the image on the cover of Megan’s is of a room I get to see every day. Check it out – the photo above is the book cover {duh!} and the one below is of our apartment taken by Husband. How cool is that?

    I think you have to buy the book and then buy a book stand…then position it on your dining table. Is that wrong? cheerio k-j-f

    My goodness, very weird – was flicking through “Home Love” at Myer this avo, as I spotted review in this months Inside Out. It’s a gorgeous apartment. BTW, I loooved your feature in Apartment Therapy- just saw it 10 mins ago. A really beautiful place..and your love of things well made really shows. A true expression of you and hubby. I suspect that by the time you’re grey and old (yes, a looong time from now), you’re apartment will tell a thousand stories through your collections over the years. Well done on the piece! x

    I can’t believe I didn’t pick up on this earlier, I love the image of your dining nook and have seen the book cover loads of times but I didn’t click they were the same room. That must be super weird but super cool for you Dana. Your apartment is beautiful.
