PROJECT

Clients with two children outgrew the condo I previously designed, trading up to a three-bedroom in Boston’s Millennium Tower. Worked with FBN Construction Co. to outfit the newly constructed blank space; interior design throughout.

CLIENT NEEDS

Sophisticated, luxury interiors commensurate with the quality of the building and able to stand up to young children.

 

RESULTS!

  • Defined living and dining areas by installing subtle drop ceilings that also house wiring for lights
  • Maintained a restrained color palette that doesn’t compete with the city views
  • A custom-designed living room sofa (covered in a performance fabric) curves around so family feels enveloped; Holly Hunt coffee table is a toddler-friendly shape
  • Custom built-in cabinetry in the living room provides toy storage, as well as buffet space for entertaining; finish is a bleached wood similar to existing floors but set off with a metallic glaze that catches in the wood grain
  • Kristen Rivoli custom designed living room rug; silk lines against a wool background make the single-color neutral rug dynamic
  • A freeform chandelier and round table further define the dining area: chairs have decorative fabric on back but easy-wipe leather on the seats
  • Colorful play space next to kitchen features a custom mini sofa
  • Cork wallpaper in hallway has an elegant metallic background and offers sound absorption in a home with lots of glass; Kristen Rivoli custom designed rug runners
  • Custom cabinetry in children’s bedrooms accommodates beds turned in either direction
  • Outfitted small entryway with a custom mirror and floating console table that leaves plenty of space for a stroller and shoes
