A first impression

I have a whole pin board devoted to making a great first impression in your home. Its a place to make a subtle statement with a comfy bench and basket. Or better yet wow them with a fun patterned wallpaper or a striking chandelier. Make it a place that sets the tone with an introduction to a color that you thread throughout you whole first floor. Keep the floor coverings durable and timeless. Feng Shui says make sure your door opens all the way without encumbrances and hang a beautiful mirror or special art to welcome in good chi.  I just like to make sure there’s a good place to throw keys and put a lamp.  Hope this inspires you to make sure your foyer is ready to great your guests! 2f95922fa88793056e9c5db140d02402














Mother’s Day Gift Guide with a Conscience

So I’m a mom and I think I have a pretty good beat on what moms might like for Mother’s Day. Beauty products, clothes and lots of flowers are always a perfect treat! But this year lets give mom something that not only will she love but something that will have a lasting positive impact on the earth and the people on it. I have tried all of these suggestions so I’m sending you there with ideas that I’m positive your mom will love!


Flowers! This is my number one favorite thing to get for mother’s day and Farmgirl Flowers is doing everything right when it come to giving someone flowers. The majority of flowers come from other countries, a lot of them end up unused and in composts and they are coated in deadly pesticides. Farmgirl Flowers supports local farmers, reduce pesticides and waste and if you’re local they pedal to get those flowers to you!

I love this little video that tells their story.



The cashmere sweater, a staple in every woman’s closet. In grey, black, cream crewneck or V and good quality you will wear it forever! Everlane is a clothing company that promotes radical transparency by searching for factories that are honest and ethical about their workplace environment, being honest about there markups on the goods they sell and high quality products that will last. And at $110 the cashmere crew if an amazing price. They have a whole line of other closet staples but treat mom to this sweater and she will know that you truly appreciate all that she does.



Beauty products are always a great gift for mom! And Beauty Counter has been taking the world by storm with safe products that will make mom feel beautiful and pampered. Unfortunately many companies are using known toxins in their products—ingredients that have been linked to cancer, reproductive issues, hormone disruption—without telling us. But Beauty Counter has now created a line that we can all feel safe using. I switched most of my beauty routine to Beauty Counter about 2 years ago and I love them. Treat mom to some of my favorites the Rosewater Uplifting Spray, Peppermint Lip Balm or the Lustro Sugar Scrub.


Is your mom a cook? Then treat her to a week of one of the latest and greatest companies that delivers you all the ingredients to a delicious vegan meal called The Purple Carrot  As you may know animal agriculture is one of the leading causes of disruption to our environment with greenhouse gases and deforestation. So Mark Bittman, author of Vegan Before 6, has created this meal delivery service that will let you create three delicious vegan meals a week. I’ve been a Purple Carrot subscriber for quite sometime and trust me there is not scary about Spinach Risotto with Spiced Chickpea Crumble. And mom feels good about eliminating 3 carnivore meals a week!



What better way celebrate motherhood than getting something for mom that will empower other moms all around the world. The Little Market is a online marketplace for fair trade goods that provide meaningful income for woman in 16 different countries. These female artisans create beautiful baskets, bowls and blankets and they have a great mothers day gift right here. My favorite is the bohemian market basket perfect for the pool or famers market!



Ok one last one that I have to share but it no secret! Toms has been providing shoes for those in need with every shoe you purchase for years.  And now they have expended into so much more. Better access to clean water, eye care for those in need, safe birth environments and bully prevention are other areas they provide funding for that are truly making a difference in the world. But here’s the catch all you have to do is buy a cute pair of shoes and you can be apart of what they are doing. Sounds good to me! So whats my pick? The cork platforms are the best, I own 2 pairs and they are a three season staple. Perfect with a dress, jeans or even a pair of shorts. Love them!



It’s all black and white

Ever stand infront of your closet and wonder what the heck you should wear? I find that used to happen more often when I had a huge variety of items that were hard to put together. Now I just wear “the uniform” black pants and a white shirt. No not like I’m about to wait on tables for the lunch hour! But classic like a Parisian. Oh this look will never get old for me! I feel there are so many ways to add to it and it could span your whole lifetime with out aging you. What’s your uniform?

Sunny Rooms

Whoa!  After another doozy of a snowstorm this weekend all I could think of is spring and wanting to be sitting one of these beautiful outdoor rooms. They seem to be that quintessential room that ever southern home must have. Not as common here in Colorado. My sunroom used to have giant hot tub and a washer/dryer in it! It’s now my office and it about to undergo some renovations to remove the very leaky skylights. Stay tuned!

Hello Again

Well it’s been almost a year but I’m back. Talk about taking a hiatus! This is the new improved  Megan Kane Interiors formerly known as…MStreet.  I changed things up this year when I decided to drop the real estate and property development portions of my business because the interior design side has totally exploded. Which is great, it’s really my very favorite part.  I have some big happenings this year and I look forward to sharing them with you.





Totally loving a vintage looking rugs kilim these days. Searching hard to find something for my foyer but colors or sizing are always a little off. They add such a good element of old in a decor scheme and give a room a sense of history.

Ebay is an amazing resource for these rugs and there are lots of reproductions out there form Pottery Barn to Overstock. Let the search continue!

Catching up

I had a such a good summer weekend. It was relaxing and fun all at the same time.  The girls are winding down school and summer officially starts at the end of this week. It’s a little crazy around here with all the end of the year activities!









Delightful: giving great pleasure or delight; highly pleasing: a delightful surprise.
This looks so totally delightful! I could spend all afternoon here with my girls friends sipping French 75’s and gabbing about life.

Taking it out back

We finally got new shed!  I know that might not sound too exciting but trust me it has totally elevated the look of our back yard. Not to mention it has provided a ton of storage and maybe we get 2 cars in the garage soon. I’m excited to paint and landscape around it so it look like it had always been there. Can’t wait to show you some after pictures. Any big back yards plans for you?
