• Junior League Showhouse bathroom renovation

    The stained-glass windows inform and inspire the Guest Bath of the 2012 Junior League of Boston Decorator Show House. The elegant and sleek washbasin, wall-hung cabinet, bathtub filler and sink faucet add the modern touches while the dramatic and unexpected hand-blown glass chandelier gives a nod toward the nature-inspired Arts and Crafts movement.

  • Living Room

    This living space posed a challenge: how to make people feel comfortable in a room with monumental windows. We used moldings to connect the widows both vertically, and more importantly, horizontally. The dark metal mirror and chandelier also help to 'lower' the ceiling.

  • Sitting Room

    A traditional room with a contemporary fireplace and no electronic media. A soft neutral palette adds to the calm and quiet.

  • Kitchen

    This kitchen opens up into a family room with two-story windows. We used a warm neutral palette to make it feel comfortable. A cozy kitchen table inviting you to sit down and enjoy a meal or a simple cup of coffee. The natural light and blue looks beautiful against the greenery outside.

  • Bathroom

    What woman can't design a feminine bathroom? But I love adding masculine details to rooms and this bathroom has it all. Straight lines and dark colors set the tone, however, the black and white photo, faux fur rug and accessories seal the deal!

  • Manchester Living Room (view 1)

    Originally, a fireplace wall ran from floor to ceiling where the console table now sits. During the design process, the client expressed concern that without the fireplace wall the area would lose its cozy feeling. Au contraire, we made it warm and inviting using the high back tuxedo sofa and console table as a way to partition this space.

  • Manchester Living Room (view 2)

    The second sitting area overlooking the harbor utilizes that height of a tuxedo sofa and console table to create intimacy.

  • Bathroom

    This Master Bathroom is both feminine and masculine. The rich brown provides warmth while the soft Roman shades add a touch of femininity. We also love the tile border with its complimentary curves.

  • Kitchen and Family Room

    This family asked us to build a heavy-duty functioning kitchen and adjoining family room. They wanted a clean-lined traditional white kitchen. Our priority involved form following function as well as sourcing durable materials and finishes.

  • Kitchen Details

    In addition to the cabinets, we custom designed every inch of the kitchen including the wire-brushed oak island, kitchen desk cabinet, tambour-door appliance garages, easily-moveable prep cart, and reclaimed wood/metal table.

  • Family Room Details

    The family room was designed to be comfortable with a contemporary flair. We incorporated fresh colors inspired by nature and built a custom fireplace surround with beautiful wood and stonework.

  • Dining Room

    Formerly the wood piers that supported Boston's famous Pier 4 Restaurant, the floor provides a worn patina and the stamina much-needed in this hard-working space.  All appropriate for a house that sits on a harbor and a family that spends tons of time in the kitchen and playing on the water.

  • Powder Room

    The over-scaled floral wall paper provides a twist on traditional, exactly what we wanted.

  • Master Bedroom

    Taking a cue from this harbor-side home, the indigo blue and silver grasscloth wrap this bedroom in sophistication. The silk and wool rug provide that soft cozy feeling the clients wanted when their feet hit the floor in the morning.
