When it came time to update the home, all family fingers pointed to Meg. “It had truly become a dreary place,” she says. She
gave the original structure a face-lift without erasing the home’s period charm and doused the four-bedroom addition with
her signature kaleidoscope of color and pattern. Keeping upgrades straightforward and practical, she never lost sight of the
home’s purpose. “A lake house should be comfortable and welcoming—a place that puts your mind at ease,” she says.
