Mark and I met Lee Melahn and Rick Shaver when they opened a terrific little shop devoted to all things domestic in a tiny brick house on Madison's east side. The two have a blog which shares its name with their former store — Pleasant Living Home — and a business Shaver/Melahn Studios in NYC where they specialize in furniture and interior design.
But they live much of the time here in Madison where they have family connections. Not long ago Lee came over to intervew Mark and me after he and Rick attended a garden party here in late summer. The result of his chat with us — along with pix of our house and garden — is here.
