is blessed to have a variety of projects to work on, which is uncharacteristic
in an industry where narrow specialties are often considered the norm. Her
work on the Rouyer Camp demonstrates an ability to harmonize the architecture
of today with that of the past - her task was to rebuild on a homesite where
a family cottage from 1948 once stood. Exterior colors reflect the Caribbean,
bringing a cheerful ambience to the new structure, while interior colors of
golden yellow envelop the walls and ceiling. With decks and an open arbor,
Maureen shows that luxury comes in many different forms for individuals.
In another project, Maureen was asked to design luxurious interiors for a lodge along the Gulf Coast. Set among one of the most pristine marshland landscapes she has ever seen, the lodge offers a place to experience and preserve this wetland habitat. The site inspired Maureen to suggest that her clients choose Audubon wildlife for the art and select architectural features and finishes that recall Cajun raised cottages of the past. Selections included interior horizontal wood plank walls, reclaimed timber beams and wide plank pine flooring. With the help of skilled craftsmen, the Cameron Meadows Lodge exudes a sense of new history.
