Palm Beach Daily News - - FRONT PAGE - By CHRIS­TINE DAVIS

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.”

Ch­eryl For­man: “The house al­ready had good bones and ceil­ing heights, and good vol­ume made a big dif­fer­ence.”
