Meagan Row House Nest

MEAGAN, Author & Owner

Hi! I’m Meagan, author of the Row House Nest. I started this blog while living in an actual row house in Ireland, back in 2010. I am now based in Toronto, ON, Canada – where I’m from originally. I started the blog because I was (and still am) constantly on the hunt for creative new ideas for my home, and am always researching and finding ways to DIY my life. I figured I might as well create a platform allowing me to share all that I’ve discovered!

I am the proud dog momma to Nan. That’s me up above, smothering her. She’s my partner in crime.

I am inspired by the great outdoors, free spirits, creative uses of wood & other objects, vintage décor (anything circa 1955), dogs, turquoise and a good story. I daydream about camping and hiking a lot and exploring the world at large.

ROSELIE, Contributor & Marketing Developer

Hi there, I’m Roselie! I’m a contributor and also in charge of marketing here at the Row House Nest. Oh, and I’m also Meagan’s little sister.

I live in Toronto, ON with my husband and our black lab. I am an actor by trade, and am naturally drawn to a creative lifestyle. It didn’t take long for me to get on the DIY-train with Meagan, making everything and anything I could – home décor, wedding & events décor, you name it. I love the creative satisfaction and sense of accomplishment of having MADE something myself that I can be proud of.

I am personally inspired by creative people and beautiful spaces; by exploring edges of the world that are new to me; and by my special loved ones and the “nest” we create. I love to meet new people and learn new skills, to pursue a healthy lifestyle and to push myself to be the best I can at whatever it is I’m doing. I love a good challenge!
