Keeping the architecture and age of this 100-year old home in harmony with the clients’ extensive, impressive art collection and contemporary taste was a central theme for this complete redesign in Cambridge’s Huron Village. The project was a complete top-to-bottom, 4-floor, turnkey design. The clients were moving from Manhattan to Cambridge (just like I did years earlier!) and I ensured every element was in place so the family could move right in and begin enjoying their New England home. This included overseeing renovation construction and the installation of furniture and furnishings, as well as the selection and procurement of custom window treatments, lighting and floor coverings throughout the entire home.
Since the family’s colorful art collection served as a main point of inspiration, the project incorporated a colorful palette. I made sure the colors and art pieces in each room flowed as you moved throughout the house, giving the art and home a cohesive feel.
Even with the family still based in New York during the design and renovation process, we were still able to build a great rapport and working relationship via email and just a few meetings in Manhattan. And once they made the move, their new Yankee home was featured in New England Home!
