GMA star Lara Spencer has shown fans around her Connecticut home and given a tour of her favorite spots in the mansion.
The TV personality keeps her personal life private despite being active on social media.
Lara, 54, took to her Instagram feed to share a treat photo with her four-legged friend.
She snuggled up to her extremely fluffy dog on a plush gray sectional sofa.
The GMA star captioned the photo, “I saved her and now she saves me every day.”
She included the hashtag #pleaseadopt.
While fans were quite taken with the dog, many were more interested in the background.
Lara doesn’t often bring fans to her house, although she once reported from there.
In addition to her couch, which was adorned with plush pillows in various prints, the Instagram photo also featured her floor-to-ceiling windows, eclectic art on the walls, and even a small portion of the outdoor space behind a large patio that was visible through the windows.
One fan commented: “Your house is so beautiful. I remember during COVID you filmed GMA with the dog from there.”

Although Lara has performed a number of live shows from her home, she doesn’t often show the space.
In 2021 she performed The Rachel Ray Show to give fans a tour of her home.
The section started at the front door, where Lara showed off a large dog statue that she apparently bought at a flea market.
Fans will remember the TV personality from Flea Market Flip on HGTV.
She showed all the rooms in her home – some shorter than others.
The home was filled with bright colors, flea market finds, stunning art, and bold accents.
She also introduced fans to her many rescue dogs.
Lara showcased her huge patio in more detail, revealing an outdoor kitchen and large open space just behind the huge windows featured in her Instagram photo.
She called the room “one of my favorite places in the house.”
She also showed off her “nemesis” – a gallery wall that she had wanted to put on since the start of the pandemic and was struggling to pull it off.
Lara showed fans how much work she had done and how much was left.
The former HGTV star is enjoying a good project.
Earlier this year, she introduced something design-centric that she’s been working on away from the morning show.
Lara announced a collaboration and teased that she would be working with her “favorite design studio in Nashville.”
Lara shared a photo of her with the design duo holding up a picture frame and some rolls of duct tape – a nod to design couple Brook and Brice Gilliam’s frugal furniture covers.
Lara said she’s working on a home project with the duo behind Magnolia Network’s “Making Modern.”
“If you haven’t seen her show #MakingModern on HBO Max and Magnolia – check it out,” Lara wrote in her caption.
Brice, a licensed dentist, spends his free time as the couple’s designer.
Brooke, a pharmaceutical sales representative, oversees the building and construction projects.
“We started construction in 2015,” Brooke said in an interview with People.
She noted that the couple “didn’t have a fantastic experience with our contractor” at the time.
The couple love modern designs full of natural colors and warm lighting.
“Modern is clean, clean lines, kind of minimalist, not a lot of chaos,” Brice said.
“We try to show a livable, functioning version of modernity. It doesn’t have to be sterile and hospital-like.”
The couple also spoke about their efforts to subvert gender norms.
“I want girls in general to feel like they can do whatever they want,” Brooke said when asked for advice for women who want to build.
“If you want to learn, find a mentor and learn. Ask questions. Don’t be scared because you don’t know how to use a nail gun or a drill or whatever.”
