>Meg Ryan’s Home in Martha’s Vineyard

Several years ago,  Actress Meg Ryan, was looking for a peaceful place to spend quality time with her children. Since Ryan is a Connecticut native she is “drawn to seaside communities along the northern Atlantic.” “The light in that part
of the country is the most beautiful light ever,” the actress explained.

Meg’s delightful beach home in Martha’s Vineyard was decorated with the help of Marsha Russell of Satinwood and was featured in Elle Decor last summer.  Besides sharing her lovely home with readers, she also discussed her approach to design, which just proves she is not only a charming actress but also a talented designer.  We love how the home combines charming vintage elements (lighting, tables, linens) as well as very modern and sleek accessories. Photographer, William Waldron, did well in providing a wonderful tour of this unique beach home.

Meg’s Design philosophy 
“The whole idea is to keep things as simple as possible; 
I like everything pared down to its purest form.

Welcome home – In the main entry, the zinc-top table is topped with a lovely vase bursting full of beauty. . .

Slip-covered chairs are from Intérieurs,
and a pendant light  from Historical
. .

The sitting area in the great room features a custom-made light fixture; an industrial metal console table and the side table is vintage . . .

A guest room feels extremely angelic with its pure white palette plus a bed by Pottery Barn . . .


An interesting mix is found in the master bathroom ~ vintage pendant lights
hang above an antique soapstone basin and the counters are made of bluestone
with painted-brick supports.

The master bath also includes an antique earthenware tub and a fabulous mosaic floor . . .

We love how the modern pendant lights and appliances are combined with a rustic-looking oak table to create a charming kitchen . . .

Bluestone shelves
and painted-brick supports create storage
in the home’s pantry. . .

In the master bedroom, the bed and trunk are designed by Marsha Russell and all the linens are vintage . . .

The home’s view is not too shabby, is it?
