Interior Design: Boston Residence One

Added on by Trevor Fulmer.

This classic Boston brownstone is a study in texture and material – from smooth leathers, natural animal prints and organic grasscloths to reflective and matte metals, thick-woven fabrics and natural woods.

The home’s decor was collected over time, melding vintage and reclaimed pieces with new and contemporary art. Distinct but unified, they tell stories of travel and family heritage.

The warm color palette was chosen to be calming and inviting. Hues of beige, brown and black established the predominately monochromatic look.

Furniture was selected for comfort and style. An oversized black leather sofa anchors the seating area, while square, camel-color ottomans provide the perfect coffee table and foot-stool combo.

To add architectural drama, a Wassily chair – designed by Marcel Breuer – was selected for its light visual weight. It also perfectly delineated the living and dining spaces, which features an expandable table perfect for both small and large parties.

While this common area had lofty 14-foot ceilings, it was restricted by a narrow footprint. To maximize space, an entertainment center was incorporated with the 12-foot fireplace while Damask-patterned drapes, an oversized mirror and gallery-style art carry slight-lines upward.
