PROJECT

Young working professional couple with a toddler and a second child on the way bought a triplex in a classic Brownstone in the Back Bay area of Boston. Surface renovation and interior design throughout combining traditional classic design with modern living, incorporating a vast art collection and many other wonderful family heirlooms and collections.

  • Bold chartreuse strié painted walls create a warm and cozy feeling in the entire living/dining room.
  • Luxury-forward stain resistant fabric covers all furniture allowing my clients to have a formal living room with two toddlers living in the house.
  • Removed walls between a small galley kitchen and formal dining room to create an open kitchen and family room space, making it easy to keep an eye on the kids while they’re playing.

  • The children’s bedrooms are furnished with a cozy sofa for reading and furniture arranged to create extra play spaces with lots of bookshelves.
