Meredith’s design philosophy is that a home should feel collected, never decorated. It should reflect the client’s individual personality. Her design often marries a mix of traditional timelessness and fresh contemporary, incorporating a mix of antiques and art. Often her projects begin with only a few rooms and evolve into full home design and renovations. Meredith’s positive energy, combined with her attention to detail creates a unique working relationship with her clients, allowing her to create beautiful spaces with a deep understanding of their lifestyle and needs.
