A Staycation Paradise

For busy doctors Meggie and Andrew Le Shea, time away with their family is often limited. So, when designing their new home in Lewisville, Texas they aimed to create the ultimate staycation house. "We wanted to have a hotel-like feel to the place," Andrew says. "But, more livable because we have two kids."

The Cantoni Dallas design team was brought in for the job and tasked with completing everything from space planning and furniture selection to picking out the lighting and advising on fine art. The La Sheas lead very busy lifestyles and needed their entire house finished quickly. With only six months to make their house move-in ready, the design team worked to transform the home into the family’s dream destination.

To achieve that look the designers kept things neutral, but added colorful artwork and fun pops of color in each room. "We love seeing the orange chairs when you walk in and the bright artwork against the neutral furniture in the dining room," the design team says. "We wanted to create that relaxing resort feel with a sleek and modern twist." For the large formal living room, the design team selected an oversized sofa and created two intimate seating areas, connecting the space with a custom rug to add warmth and texture.

And it wouldn't be a vacation-like home without a pool and a view. "It was important for us to have a backyard where we could relax," reveals Andrew. "That's why we love the infinity pool and the golf course view. Cantoni helped us put together a great outdoor space to unwind, from the patio off our kitchen to the lounge chairs by the pool. Now, my wife and I love spending the evenings in our backyard, sipping our coffee and enjoying the sunset. It truly feels like a vacation."

Cantoni helped us put together a beautiful resort-inspired home with a great outdoor space to unwind. It truly feels like a vacation.
