Beacon Hill Residence: Before/After

One of our recently completed projects is a 6 level 6,000 square ft brick row house located in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of Boston. When we initially walked through the house with the development team, we immediately saw its potential as a residence for a growing family.

Spring Catalog Finds with Graphic Punch

Spring is here and who doesn’t love a quick little pick me up for their home? The best place to look for one of those is often a catalog. They have some great finds that are good quality and can be mixed in with more high end items for a well balanced look.

Here are some of my latest finds that all have a graphic punch:

The Giardino Outdoor Collection by Ballard Designs is chic, clean lined, and could work well in a traditional or contemporary setting. The bold umbrella immediately caught my eye.  The collection is made of black powder coated iron and teak which will age to a soft gray over time.


Interior Design Inspiration: Chatham

For Labor Day weekend my husband and I went to Chatham and spent four days there with several other couples. We walked along the dunes and took pictures of the beach. Some of the colors are just incredible- these pics were taken with my blackberry and still look pretty good:

Artistic Inspiration: Alexander McQueen’s Savage Beauty

A few weekends ago, we went to NYC for my birthday and my husband surprised me with tickets to see the Alexander McQueen exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I was thrilled and we planned to stop by for an hour before dinner. How silly we were. The line to get in was out the door and down the street. We considered waiting but planned on coming back the next morning before we had to head home, which was the final exhibit day.
