Located just south of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, the picturesque island of Martha’s Vineyard is a luxurious destination for the rich and famous that seek a little privacy. The late Jackie Onassis Kennedy found shelter from the paparazzi in her Martha’s Vineyard retreat and in more recent years Barack Obama has taken holidays here, but among the island’s more permanent residents is Hollywood movie star, Meg Ryan.
The actress is the proud owner of a plush multi-million dollar beach retreat on Martha’s Vineyard, and of all the beautifully-decorated rooms in the house it’s the bathroom that we at Mira Showers find the most impressive. The crisp white décor and natural elements perfectly capture the New England style, and what’s even better is that it’s an easy look to replicate in your own home.
All White Now
Exposed brickwork is a trendy look that many modern homeowners have embraced, but it can often feel a little cold in bathrooms. To avoid this Meg Ryan has painted the bricks pure white, which is complemented by the large windows that let in plenty of natural light, and added marble surfaces for an invitingly soft, clean effect that’s also easy to maintain in any bathroom.
The matching freestanding soaking tub also makes the perfect focal point for her bathroom, and the Victorian-style taps and shower add a touch of extravagance, which you can easily recreate by fitting a Mira Montpellier Shower in your own bathroom. The Mira Montpellier Shower also comes complete with large deluge showerhead, white accents and a sleek chrome finish, for a fabulously French-inspired shower look.
Meg Ryan has also given a nod to the lush flora and fauna of Martha’s Vineyard with stained wood frames and storage trays, as well as some carefully chosen plants to add a much needed splash of colour in her beautiful New England bathroom.
