I'm Meryl the Chaletmomma.

Yes, we really do live in a Chalet cottage an hour outside of Manhattan! It was built by Austrian Craftsmen for Dr. Morgan as a get away in 1924 - the first home on our street.

I rode my bike by the Chalet as a kiddo and rang the doorbell on Halloween - always feeling a deep sense of affection for its quirkiness - with its red paint and bell-tower chimney - back then we all called her the “Red Schoolhouse”.

My birthday falls in July and ever the true crab I am all about home; and it delights me to no end to share the Chalet with my husband and our 8yr old son.

After a career as a Trimmer, Merchant and in Product Management, Sourcing, Marketing and Design in and around NYC - I now focus on all things Chaletmomma.

Interiors and Marketing are my passions - Let’s work together!

more about me…

Prosecco is my drink of choice! I’m a huge fan of architecture and interiors. I adore black and white films. I’m a history buff and a member of my local Historic Preservation Commission. I’m so very lucky to live close to NYC to take advantage of all it has to offer. I enjoy the ballet. I love any type of museum but, in my estimation the best place on earth is the Metropolitan Museum of Art! It’s gratifying to support artists - we have several original works in the Chalet. There are always fresh flowers in the Chalet. I love books - to read and collect. Check out my current read in the sidebar.

I’m an Instagram addict with two feeds @chaletmomma and @saynotoemptywalls - my tag is #saynotoemptywalls - please follow along and use my tag!
