When this owner decided to create her dream home, she set out with the intention of not having an interior designer involved. “I was so invested in the look of my home that I chose not to involve an interior designer. I wanted my home to be steeped in memories with everything having a story behind it,” she says.

With this in mind, she went about creating what she refers to as “the epitome of modern elegance”. Inspired by their holidays away and the beautiful places they’ve stayed at, the family wanted this property – the very first that they built – to be as gorgeous as the hotels they’ve loved, while being functional and inviting at the same time.
