Kayla Matthews knows a thing or two about setting the scene in beautiful style. The visionary lead planner and co-owner of Making It Matthews, a full-scale wedding planning company based in Ocala, is a married mother of two whose mission is “Making life beautiful one wedding at a time!” We enlisted her help to explore a laid-back yet decidedly luxe-casual approach to dressing for some serious at-home lounging. The stylish setting we chose for our story is Trilogy at Ocala Preserve’s sophisticated “Excite” model home, which offers the perfect balance of great interior design and a thoughtful floor plan that delivers an inviting living space. So go ahead and get cozy!
