After much debate I have decided to take a break from blogging. With a 10 months old daughter, a design studio, and a business to run I have chosen to retire from my blog and focus on other exciting aspects of my business!
Please check us out!
Thank you for all your support throughout the years and I hope you enjoy all the posts from the past!

Return from Vacation!

Love having a refreshing vacation! Especially one filled with family, parties, and thrifting! 

Check out this amazing wall sconce! I think this is fun and playful!  

Miss hadley(for those of you who don't know I had a baby girl in September hence my absence) she loved the sand and pool but the waves of the ocean were a no go...we will have to try round two this summer! 

This lime green chair we painted at the studio in MD and was transported down by a client! Love how it looks in her FL condo!

My Boy and Hadley! What a great trip we had! Hope everyone is gearing up for Spring! 

We are ready for it here at the shop! New inventory! So stop in if you live in the DMV area we are located at 4216B Howard Ave Kensington MD 20895 

Have a happy week!!!

Getting busy in the New Year!

Hey Hey Notebook Readers! I'm happy to be back and though I am busy busy that I will only be featuring my post on Fridays as opposed to daily...these posts will be action packed! From painting to sewing to what's happening in the life of Meaghan I hope you enjoy!
This week I had a ton of projects to complete but first I wanted to introduce you to Miss. Hadley!
she is my new assistant :)
This week we got some new items in our shop including these amazing catchalls. I'm a sucker for a catchall so looking at these makes me happy! Check out our boutique online www.regandmeaghan.com
I updated our table set up at the shop too..out with the holidays in with the New Year!
Just love the malachite trays I have in right now! If you are interested check out more on my Instagram @mcnamaradesignllc or email me for pricing mcnamaradesign@gmail.com
I also have been finishing a custom farm table for a client. Just love the way this stain turned out. I custom mixed the finish!
Looky here...my first custom roman shade! This Batik Indigo by P.Kaufman fabric is amazing! Love how it turned out and can't wait to install it
Finally this week I got my hands dirty custom painting these placemats for a client. She is having a supper club dinner and wanted to stand out. I also helped her with her table set up...so more pictures to come next week!

Happy Friday! Off to the weekend...filled with a Dirty Thirty birthday party, a girls night on Saturday, and a family dinner Sunday. Enjoy your family and friends this weekend!

Hello 2015! What a break it has been! For those of you who don't know I had a baby girl. I named her Hadley Creighton. Baby Hadley is the best! How I missed my weekly postings, but all worth the focus on my little one.
I am back but am switching up my format and will be featuring a weekly post every Friday. I know I love reading my favorite blogs on Fridays so it will be like a weekly update of all the fun things I've been working on throughout the week.
My first post will be this Friday January 9th, 2015.
till then

Friday Finds...Press Release!

SO pumped that its Friday and that w are featured in the Washingtonian Magazine magazine!!!
or read it here!
Regan & Meaghan
4216-B Howard Ave., Kensington; 301-509-1098
While this design shop may lack curbside charm—a neon-pink stripe and painted ga-rage door point you to its entrance, in an alley off Kensington’s warehouse district—the sprightly collection makes up for it in spades. Furniture rehabber Meaghan McNamara and interior designer Regan Billingsley put every inch of the space to use as a workshop, studio, boutique, and entertaining space (they host private events and “wine and design” classes). Preppy patterns abound: ikat, polka dots, lobster prints, and plenty of chevrons. Mixed in are fair-trade knit children’s toys, pop art, and McNamara’s cheerfully refurbished furnishings.
$115, Lacquered box set at Regan & Meaghan | $60, Hand-painted pitcher at Regan & Meaghan | Photographs by Jeff Elkins.

Pretty Ballarina Closet Doors!

Growing up I wasn't much of a girlie girl but I have to say this little girls room I just painted in would be amazing to call my own...when I was little :)
The room is designed by my business partner, Regan Billingsley, it is made up if light pinks, gold, and touches of cream. I painted the closet door detail to reflect those colors...so happy with the end product!
Love the light pink and gold trim on the door!
This same concept translates into your home...Boy and I have completed this on our closet doors in a more mature manner...check out some other inspiration pics.
So if you live in the DMV area and want your closet doors painted give McNamara Design  call or email us!!!
Happy Painting!!!
