This 1890’s colonial in the heart of the Chestnut Hill Historic district was a multi-year project in which Liz and her team worked closely with the client, the architect and the builder to reimagine this home. The furnishings, fixtures, materials and patterns were carefully curated to make this a traditional, timeless, layered and happy home for a young and active family. One of the main objectives was to make the home appear as if many of the decorative elements were either salvaged, inherited or collected over the past 100+ years of this home’s life. Period pieces such as the vintage Barovier Murano glass sconces, a massive pair of Venini style snowflake chandeliers, Louis XVI dining chairs and a regency sofa, were chosen to achieve that collected effect. Fabrics and wallcoverings were specified by vendors that supported classic techniques and patterns, such as Old World Weavers who are known for their impeccably detailed fabric restoration and replication. The end result was a well-appointed and timeless interior with some modern touches and clever usages of color.
