Elle Decor's June 2010 issue, on newsstands May 24, is devoted to the cozy Martha's Vineyard home of none other than the sophisticated Meg Ryan. With the help of Bedford, NY, interior design firm Satinwood, the actress renovated and decorated the large, cedar-shingled home, transforming it into a relaxing beachside escape. A long-time design enthusiast, Meg says, "I feel like I've been renovating houses my whole life. I've renovated apartments, lofts, a log cabin in Montana. I'm constantly ripping pages out of magazines in search of inspiration." Satinwood's Marsha Russell even copped, "Meg wanted someone to bounce ideas off and to find things for her. But she's the visionary on this project. She has a wonderful aesthetic and a great eye."
Ryan's Martha's Vineyard home is a far cry from the glitz of other celebrity homes we've seen (like Khloe Kardashian's office). She's washed the walls in warm white and given each room a relaxed, rustic vibe with casual elements like sisal carpet, worn wood, and industrial pendants. In a word, it's livable. I'd move right in.
