Home Tour: Merryhill by Anne Dutcher

Anne Dutcher

Interior designer Anne Dutcher has a signature style of warmth, elegance, and understated luxury. She creates inviting spaces that are both functional and beautiful using her discerning eye for color, texture, and scale. Decorating homes from Nantucket to Florida, Anne’s aesthetic is both sophisticated and charming and her interiors have been featured in numerous publications from Southern Home to Victoria Magazine.

I’ve been a fan of Anne’s work for years and she recently redesigned a home in McLean, VA, Merryhill, that was recently featured in Southern Home magazine. It’s a beautiful blend of serene formality with clean lines, traditional palettes and a mix of old meets new. The home hasn’t yet been featured online, so if you haven’t gotten your hands on a hard copy of the Sept/Oct. issue of Southern Home today is your lucky day! Southern Home and Anne Dutcher were kind enough to allow me to exclusively share these images of the home with you today on the blog! Also, while chatting with Southern Home they offered me a link for my readers to receive an annual subscription to Southern Home for $19. If you want to sign up, just click here! In these unprecedented times, I don’t know about you but getting my design magazine in the mail always makes my day a little brighter. Confession: I also signed up for an annual subscription using the discount code!

So without further ado, I’m thrilled to be able to share this light and airy Virginia home, Merryhill and help get your Wednesday off to a beautiful start!

It’s no secret that every piece of furniture @theceh makes is gorgeous, but we needed to rave about them today for a different reason. Have you been following their stories lately? We have been so inspired and humbled by their dedication to their customers that we had to share…

Last month their delivery driver quit mid-delivery with no notice. For weeks now, Diana and Justin, the owners of @theceh have been driving cross country with their children, personally delivering the remaining pieces to make sure customers get everything in time.

Follow along in their stories as they share more from their nationwide delivery road trips and tap the link in our profile to learn more about @theceh on their #TTLDirectory page. { Design @lizziecullencox 📷 @laureywglenn }
