Merilane Avenue Residence 2 Living Room

2011 ASID Award Winning Design

This 10,000 square foot home was built for a family who prized entertaining and wine, and who wanted a home that would serve them for the rest of their lives. Our goal was to build and furnish a European-inspired home that feels like ‘home,’ accommodates parties with over one hundred guests, and suits the homeowners throughout their lives.

We used a variety of stones, millwork, wallpaper, and faux finishes to compliment the large spaces & natural light. We chose furnishings that emphasize clean lines and a traditional style. Throughout the furnishings, we opted for rich finishes & fabrics for a formal appeal. The homes antiqued chandeliers & light-fixtures, along with the repeating hues of red & navy offer a formal tradition.

Of the utmost importance was that we create spaces for the homeowners lifestyle: wine & art collecting, entertaining, fitness room & sauna. We placed fine art at sight-lines & points of interest throughout the home, and we create rooms dedicated to the homeowners other interests.

Would you share the fabric name and manufacturer with me? I'm having trouble finding a true tan that doesn't read too green or pink.

Fabulous rug! Just the color pallet we are looking for... - Can you please let us know the manufacturer?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Martha O'Hara Interiors
Hello mommakaplan!

Thank you for your question - the rug was previously owned by the client. It's a hand-knotted rug from Asia.

Hope this helps, and good luck on the hunt for the perfect rug!

Where did you get the arch moulding ? What is it called? - I want to make my square doors arched what is the moulding called to do that?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Martha O'Hara Interiors
Hi debra203,

Thank you for your inquiry! This home was built to have arched doorways, there is no molding on the arch only on the columns. The molding was sourced through the builder Stonewood LLC.

Best of luck!

Can only imagine how extraordinary this house is both architecturally & from an interior design perspective. Owners are folks after my own heart!...a house w/ great flow for entertaining, but equally warm & livable for a family. Love the neutral, light color palate used on the walls, ceiling - creates an airiness about the space and serves as perfect canvas for the warmer, richer wood tones & fabrics on the furniture. A beautiful balance.
