I am SO excited to share this new project with you guys– finally, I can share projects as they finish! :) YAAAAAYYY! This was SUCH a fulfilling job, as the bones of this place are just breathtaking to start with. When given this kind of canvas, it’s hard not to create a masterpiece! The brownstones in Boston’s Back Bay/South End/ Beacon Hill are some of my favorite spaces as they are chock full of the most incredible, charming detail you just do not find in newer homes. Just look at these ceilings! However, we needed to adapt these formal spaces to everyday living. This young couple plans on having a family (and already has big, happy dog) so they did not want anything quite as grand as the space itself. We started with the parlor level of the home, designing the family room and formal living room, and did a little work in the garden level kitchen and powder bath. We hope to keep going and work on their dining room next, but I couldn’t wait to share these shots Sarah Winchester took for us!
This is the family room– a comfy but tailored sectional done in a Perennials fabric assures durability, comfort AND good looks. The gorgeous drapery was a statement maker, by our much adored workroom. The extra wide tape trim feels perfectly balanced considering the ceilings are over 11′ high, and the custom metal rods (which were there from the previous owner which was lucky) are fitted perfectly into the gorgeous curves of the windows. The rug, believe it or not, is an indoor/outdoor from Stark that really does wear like iron but feel delightful underfoot.
