Please describe a recently completed project or tell us about the bespoke service that you offer

“On a recent project on the South Coast of Massachusetts, we accompanied the homeowner and realtor on a search for their ideal property and landed on a c.1979 Gambrel-style home with sweeping ocean views. Working with their local architect and builder, we space-planned and transformed the entire house to take advantage of the water views, while allowing the front of the house to remain in keeping with the size and scale of the neighborhood. Inside, the homeowners wanted a fusion of ‘New England-meets-California’ vibe which we accomplished with a sun-bleached color palette, pops of blue, and an easy, beachy, modern aesthetic throughout.

Another project found us on the North Shore in an antique home c. 1900, where we cleaned up the interior architecture throughout, renovated seven bathrooms, added custom interior millwork, and refreshed the kitchen. Using their collections and art as a starting place, we helped the young homeowners select light fixtures, custom furniture, bespoke wallpaper, and antiques to express their love of family, history, music, and humor. The result is an unforgettable home that's sophisticated yet totally livable."
