So Dreamy - Meg Ryan's Martha's Vineyard Home
I have always had a little thing for Meg Ryan, it waned a bit through the whole divorce from Dennis Quaid, Russell Crow, plastic surgery phases, but I have to say I'm impressed with her design talents. Her home on Martha's Vineyard is the perfect inspiration for a dream beach home. I love all the windows, the barn doors, the clean simple design and all the artistic touches. She did work with a designer, but mainly to help with sourcing materials and to bounce ideas off. Meg has lots of experience and definitely drove the design process.
She said her goal was to get people in the house enjoying the views to outside the house and I think she achieved that. It's cozy but uncomplicated, warm and welcoming. I am a little envious of the guests who are invited to stay here. It looks like the perfect place to make memories with friends and family with perfect little nooks to curl up together as well as spots for quiet solitude.
You can see a tour of this gorgeous home in Elle Decor here and read the article about the entire design process here - it's pretty interesting. And you can read design tips from Meg here.
