Romance and Mystery in Hancock Park

Posted on Thu, 29 Jun 2023 by midcenturyjo

“Hancock Park is known for gracious homes that offer a striking mix between classic English Tudors and fanciful Old Hollywood architecture. Our goal was to preserve the essence of the home while also making necessary updates that would support the harmony, functionality, and appeal of the space. This meant leaving in some of the more ‘dated’ elements and creating an interior atmosphere that would compliment the original themes. We invited a new edge into our work by bringing romance and mystery into a family home, something unexpected. The result proved that sensuality and soul can add a necessary warmth to familial spaces.”

Beautifully curated and almost cave-like, an oasis from the glare outside the windows. Muted, mossy, mature and marvellous. Hancock Park Tudor by Jake Arnold.

This 10,000 square foot Beacon Hill project took three years to complete. Built in 1835, the five-bedroom Greek Revival townhouse had seen grander days. In 2001, a young Boston couple purchased the building from the Unitarian Church’s Beacon Press. Having been converted into a warren of cubicles, all five levels of the interior required gut renovations. The final outcome captured 19th-century European grandeur in a modern setting within Boston’s most historic neighborhood.
A bit more traditional than I typically gravitate towards but that lovely yellow kitchen, cheerful stairwell and so many gorgeous bathrooms left me smitten and I had to share this with you all. Designed by Heidi Pribell.

You’ll find me in the kitchen

“After undertaking a complete refurbishment of this elegant mews home in West London, we created a calming yet eclectic backdrop with our signature layers of colour and pattern throughout.”

A fabulous renovation of a Notting Hill house by HÁM but it’s the kitchen that is calling me. I’ll be preparing a meal for family or friends you’ll be ensconced on that fabulous banquette with a cup of tea and the crumbs of a recently baked cake on your plate.

White and bright in Madrid

Light-filled and fabulous this Madrid apartment by Espejo & Goyanes celebrates the historic bones of the building but adds a refined contemporary sophistication. Natural wood tones combine with brighter than bright whites while golden metals and black accents punctuate the scheme.

Contemporary vitality

This contemporary apartment designed by Madrid-based Ines Benavides is bright, full of personality and has a healthy dose of eclecticism and uniqueness. That bathroom in particular is unlike anything I’ve ever seen (and I’ve seen it all). What an absolutely fabulous addition to the space.
