New Video Tour of a Historic Brownstone Renovation

Back Bay Brownstone by Lisa Tharp | Videography by John Harrison

Clean lines meets historic brownstone renovation. Take a video tour of our Back Bay Brownstone project, which recently won the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art's Bulfinch Award for Interior Design. In these times of sheltering in place, the video has taken on new nostalgia for the beloved city of Boston. So, take a virtual stroll by the Public Garden, then turn down a tree-lined street and come on inside.

How to satisfy a client's minimalist, modern leanings in a traditional space? Mix it up. Combine different eras and styles in a carefully balanced composition that supports comfort and carefree living. Tall ceilings are highlighted with a Murano oval globe chandelier by Fabio Bergamo, Venice. A restored 1970's Italian Alky chair by Giancarlo Piretti is in the foreground. Daybed is by Nathan Lindberg. Side table is from Artefact Home. Traditional rosewood chairs flank the fireplace. Painting is by Caroline Rufo via Powers Gallery.

Tall cabinetry capitalizes on high ceilings for extra storage. Brass upholstered counter chairs add warmth and comfort to the crisp, efficient kitchen.

The master bedroom is a calm oasis in the city. A tonal mix of textures – from the luxurious wool draperies to the lustrous chair fabric on restored Pearson Lloyd "Oscar" lounge chairs to bed layers and softness underfoot — all add up to supreme comfort.

With 360 degree views of the city's landmarks, this might be my favorite room in the house. :)

Special thanks to our partners Mellowes & Paladino Architects and JW Construction, our talented workrooms, our own dedicated design team and to our clients for their trust.
