In Good Taste: Meredith Ellis Design

 

It has officially turned cold in North Carolina (Okay, well, high 50s… but it feels cold.) and we are feeling the need to snuggle up and stay close to home

 

Meredith Ellis designed dining room

 

These spaces by Meredith Ellis Design have all the trappings of the kinds of places we want to spend our days and nights right now. 

 

Meredith Ellis designed library

 

Deep, moody blues create the perfect work space,

And perfectly imperfect gallery walls and stacks of books embody the homey feel we’re craving this winter.

Bright sunny spots blent with rich wood antiques for spaces that are the best of both worlds,

 

Meredith Ellis designed family room

 

And libraries for whiling away sleepy, restful days take precedence.

A deep, real-wood fireplace is necessary,

And bonus points are given for a sloped, dreamy ceiling–

And cozy covers to crawl underneath. 

 

 

Dark wood and bamboo accents ground a space,

 

Meredith Ellis designed mudroom

 

And even the mudroom feels dark, moody and just right for right now. We couldn’t love these gorgeous, perfectly designed spaces any more. What’s your favorite Meredith Ellis-designed room?

Kara Miller interiors blue and white bedroom

 

This chic bedroom is only the beginning.

A luxurious bath is a great place to wash off the day,

And vibrant colors and cooler-than-cool art lend a beach vibe that makes us feel like summer will never end.

We’re huge fans of the vaulted ceilings in this space,

But, then again, Miller didn’t forget to show the ceiling some love anywhere–even the laundry room!

White accents pop,

And a wow-factor bedroom is a study in bright, beach perfection.

(It’s also making us want framed photographs in every room!)

Plenty of closet space creates a place for everything,

And bamboo accents add intrigue over the sink–
