“They did such an amazing job,” says Megan. “Our main home is in Kansas City, so it can be challenging to manage a project from afar. It takes a lot of faith and cooperation with your builder.” She adds that not only is the finished product beautiful, it’s solidly built with a foot of concrete in between the two floors and all the walls. “It’s like a bunker,” says Megan. “We recently went through Hurricane Irma and sustained no damage, which is a testament to both Kevin on his design and Curry Dixon on their construction.”
For the interiors, Megan drew inspiration from the island’s hues and incorporated her signature flair for livable luxury. From rugs to fabrics to furniture, she selected pieces that were durable and easy to clean. She also wanted a cohesive look throughout while still giving each room a unique spin. For example, Megan designed the pantry around a pair of antique doors from Belgium. And she commissioned Eagle Machine Welding in Ohio to craft custom iron pieces for the master suite.
“We wanted this to be a timeless house and a really fun place where we could make memories,” says Megan. “And that’s exactly what it’s been so far. We hope that tradition will continue for generations to come.”
