Transitional modern style combined with traditional accents creates the perfect sweet spot between elegance and edgy in the home of Brian and Rachel Bergeron.

Clean lines are balanced with playful colors and patterns on vintage and custom pieces establishing the right mix for this family of five. To achieve their perfectly balanced design, Rachel enlisted the help of her best friend and interior designer, Ellen Bourgeois Dominique. “Ellen perfectly understood our style and made the process so easy,” Rachel explains.

Built by Pelican Builders Group, the custom home plans by Ronald Melancon included a large kitchen and large porches because of the Bergeron’s love for cooking and spending time outside. “My favorite feature is probably the kitchen with the large island. It’s the heart of the home. My girls and I do a lot of cooking and baking. They make awesome little sous chefs and snap all the green beans and help knead dough for dinner rolls,” Rachel says.

The whole family enjoys outdoor living. The back porch, complete with an outdoor kitchen, dining table and seating area with fireplace, is the perfect spot for Brian and Rachel to cook and watch their daughters Laura, Scarlet and Janie play in the yard and on a custom swing set from CedarWorks.
