“Color was on my mind from the very beginning—with the right combinations, it’s a fantastic tool for making a house feel special.” –Designer Meg Braff
Braff’s thoughtful tile selections throughout the seven-bedroom, eight-and-a-half-bath home (with two kitchens!) is living proof of her love and mastery of mixing color and pattern.

“In choosing the kitchen tile we wanted the all-white space to have a standout moment,” says Braff of the punchy, hardworking room. The marriage of open shelving and countertop-to-ceiling tiling opens up the overhead areas and gives it the feel of “an old brick kitchen, just brighter and more fun.”
