Two years ago, we were retained to decorate a Back Bay condo on the first block of Marlborough Street. At the time, we were not allowed to professionally photograph the finished project nor use it in any of our publicity. Recently, it came to our attention that the property was on the market showing photographs of the finished interior and we felt free to at least talk about the project here on our blog. As you will see, the existing architecture was gorgeous, thus our scope of work was furniture, fabrics, and selective decorative lighting, artwork and accessories.
Programmatically, our charge was to design/create stylish, easy, comfortable living areas in a traditional setting. Design the first level for entertaining large groups of people. The second level was intended for personal family living/relaxing and bedrooms. (Sally had a ball!!!)
LivingRoom/Parlor with it’s original chandelier for the mid 1860’s. Can’t you imagine a hosting party here, with a small quartet playing the background?
A few vignette snapshots taken during installation.
Note the corner of the custom sectional sofa Sally designed for the space. A true kitchen lounge!
Library on Second Level with it’s original restored paneling. The perfect place to wind down at the end of the day!
My biggest regret is that I never saw nor do we have a photo of the lovely custom console with a built in TV lift I designed that was placed in the living room, so beautifully fabricated by Hawkes and Huberdeau.
This piece deserves a separate post on it’s development.
(If I can corner Sally for a moment, I’ll come back and add info on furniture manufacturers, etc.)
