Bright spaces, livable furnishings and a dose of character were at the top of Snow’s wish list, and her designer, Meghan Noyes of House of Noyes, worked with the 30-year-old star to help bring her vision to life.
“We first came up with the ideal furniture layout for each room and selected the ‘main players’ that would serve as our base,” the designer tells PEOPLE. “Brittany is drawn to clean lines, so we made sure to choose classic pieces from Crate and Barrel like the white Willow Sofa or the Trevor Leather Chairs, which will never go out of style.”
While the open floor plan looks effortless now, it wasn’t without its challenges: “We really had to make sure that each space complemented the next, but still had a personality of its own,” she says.
Noyes made it work, though, by smartly utilizing timeless neutrals, wood elements and vintage pieces for a cohesive feel.
Plush pillows and cushy furnishings might tempt you to hunker down indoors, but that will all change when you see what’s outside.
“The backyard and living room is really a special area,” says Noyes. “The folding glass doors fully open and create the ultimate indoor/outdoor entertaining spot—perfect for summer pool parties!”
