Sometimes a simple decorating job turns into something much more, as Cheryl Forman discovered recently when she was commissioned to decorate a house in Palm Beach’s North End.
Homeowner Michael Peacock had bought his home at 225 Mockingbird Trail in 2010, and had already renovated it to a degree before hiring Forman to furnish it, the designer explains.
“It was originally a one-story house,” Forman says. “He had already added a lantern effect at the front of the house, by creating a two-story foyer. He had added upstairs bedrooms over the garage, and he had changed the configuration of the kitchen.”
Michael Peacock’s renovated North End home has an open concept, with the dining room open to the living room.
The renovated home at 225 Mockingbird Trail is listed for $7.195 million. The midblock residence occupies a nearly half-acre lot.
Cheryl Forman: “The house already had good bones and ceiling heights, and good volume made a big difference.”
