When lead designer Megan Fornes first set eyes on this home, it was nearly impossible to nail down an exact style. The designer, who works with ML Interiors Group, started working with the homeowners after they had already purchased a custom built home.
“When I walked through the home for the first time, there were modern features that stood out and yet a whimsical, shabby chic feel,” Fornes said. Additionally, the homeowners had furniture and plenty of collectibles with a more bohemian vibe from travels across the globe added into the mix.
The immediate challenge was to blend the architecture of the home with their personal collections and multiple styles, while adding new furnishings to provide function for their growing family. “I wanted it to be welcoming, express their love for travel while also telling a story about who they are; making sure anything important to our clients had a home rather than feeling out of place and random,” she said.
She certainly accomplished that goal, resulting in the stunning home you see here. She found a balance of the feminine and masculine elements in every room and allowed plenty of breathing room throughout the home.
Most importantly, the homeowners loved the space and felt it represented them well. “Once we reviewed what was important to our clients, whether it be a piece of furniture, pillow, or coffee table book, we made sure it made an impact and continued to balance their new design style,” Fornes said.
