The client always dreamt of a bath that felt like a calming spa. Inspiration for the finishes comes from the New England seaside. The aqua painted walls are the color of seaglass. Polshed nickle faucets, chandelier, and wall sconces add reflection like the ocean on a clear day. To complete the feeling, the white and tan mosaic floor reminds one of tumbled beach pebbles.
Through careful design and space planning, this room functions beautifully unlike many seldom-used living rooms. The central fireplace, built-in media area, and French doors from the patio -- all these invite people in. The "comfy" upholstery, antiques, and antique reproductions contribute to make the space a casual reprieve from the homeowner's hectic lifestyle.
This kitchen is designed for a family with a fast paced and fun lifestyle. With active teenagers in sports and several family pets, the kitchen is thoughtfully planned and easy to maintain. Finishes like granite, hardwood floors, stained cabinets, and stainless appliances are selected for warmth and wearability.
The client wants an "escape to France" when she comes home from a long day. The generic 1970's track house is transformed into a gently aged, romantic retreat by layered stucco walls, glazed woodwork, and Italian ceramic tiles. I found the French armoire and other antiques while shopping in Boston.
Great attention is given to the design elements of shape, value, and color in this classic dining room. The colors of russett and saphron glow and shimmer in candlelight. A large, spacious room with comfortable chairs for lingering and conversing is the desire of the homeowner.
