Colour, pattern, textiles, flea market finds and carefully curated antiques. Everything considered but nothing “precious” … except the experience. The place, the memories, the lifestyle. Family and friends, the smell of the sea and a home that holds relevance to the owners. Cape Ann Summer House by Reath Design.

Fresh take on a pied-à-terre

“Our young client was ready to make a home that felt like her own. In order to optimize the condo’s limited space, we reconfigured the layout and changed the function of certain spaces, like converting a hall closet outside of the bathroom into a built-in unit with a vanity, mirror, and storage drawers and cabinets. An open washstand with legs and light stone selections make the bathroom appear bigger, and a recessed floor length medicine cabinet prevents counter clutter. The much-loved galley kitchen, featuring antiqued stone tile and a plaster curve and vent hood, opens onto the moody dining room, the perfect setup for the owner’s many dinner parties.”

Located in the historic Charlestown neighborhood, our Boston townhouse project included full-scale renovation management, comprehensive finish selection, furnishings and art selection. Built in 1875, the color palette throughout the residence references the Victorian-era (particularly the dusty mauve living room) modernized with unexpected accent colors that captured both the client’s artful taste, and timeless New England roots.
Not sure which I prefer more – the dusty mauve or the green in the kitchen (Farrow & Ball’s Breakfast Room Green). Such pretty colours! Designed by Jessica Stambaugh of JS Interiors. Photos: Sian Richards.

Keeping the theme going of maximalist, colourful, vibrant, whimsical spaces, here are some more spaces designed by the inimitable Benedict Foley. Benedict really does have a way with colours that you don’t see in most interiors.

I have never seen a more vivacious, flamboyant, vivid and spirited home than that of creative consultant Max Hurd in collaboration with designer Benedict Foley. This Victorian terrace house in London could not be more fun and energizing. The attention to detail and the somewhat random colours used throughout his home….someone with a home like this must have such a wonderful outlook on life. I want to be his friend.
