My Little Maison: Morgan Reid of Reidmore

I bumped into Morgan from Reidmore on twitter a few months back and was immediately drawn to her blog’s clean look and logo.  Upon further investigation, Reidmore offers a view into her life with fun weekly posts like Top 5 Favorites and Have Dog, Will Travel; where she explores Washington, DC with her pup, Tilly.  Her posts are relaxed and comfortable as if you were reading updates from an old friend.  Morgan also has a great eye for design and I’m excited to see what her new digs after her recent post of 5 necessities for her new apartment.   Thanks again Morgan for taking part of the My Little Maison Project!


Tell us about yourself and your inspiration behind starting the blog?
I had an old blog through high school and college and ended up stopping when classes, internships and my job hunt became too much. I got a job in Sales, and came home after work, craving some creative project. Moving to a new city, I knew I needed to step outside of my comfort zone to make friends, so blogging and building that network seemed like the next logical step.

How often do you post and what is the majority of your content about?
I try to post a few times each week, but life gets the best of me! I’m envious of bloggers who are diligent enough to post daily!

What are your future plans for the blog?
Well, I’ve got a few years of graphic design and social media experience under my belt, so I’m working on a Reidmore Creative business. I’ve got the entrepreneurship itch, so I’d love to turn this into a career, helping small businesses and bloggers with design and growing their presence.

I asked Morgan to share 3 of her favorite things from her home.  I am loving #1 below!

Favorite Item #1:
Bronze Moroccan pouf: My apartment is a tiny shoebox, so pieces like this that serve as an ottoman or seating work well. I’ve traveled to Morocco last year, so this reminds me of my time there, wandering the markets!

Favorite Item #2:
Dog Painting: Above my couch I’ve got an arrangements of funny prints and photos, so this quirky painting I did of my dog fits in just right. She’s sort of the queen of the apartment, so it makes sense. You could definitely call me a Crazy Dog Lady!

Favorite Item #3:
Antique kitchen table: When I moved to DC without a single piece of furniture or any sort of budget, Craigslist was the best I could do. I bought this table and 4 chair set for $100 and had to remove layers and layers of green bubbling paint. After a few trips to Home Depot, the table looks completely different! I painted the top with a nice neutral, but put a fun, bright chevron pattern on the bottom, just for an unexpected surprise.

Finally, I asked Morgan to share a favorite spot in her Little Maison.  The one word she used to describe it:  CREATIVE. 

Working on my Reidmore blog and Reidmore Creative design and business ideas, this office nook in my tiny bedroom was the first investment I made in this new endeavor. It’s still a work in progress, for sure. But I love that I can pin up things that inspire me on the cork boards. There is just something about sitting at a real desk (as opposed to a bed or kitchen table in my case) that makes you much more productive.


Thank you for letting us take a peek inside your world Morgan!
