Are we the only ones who fantasize about living in a flat on historic Marlborough Street in Boston? We tasted the dream this spring when we styled this stunning city bachelor pad with to-die-for views of both city skyline and green space.
Sophisticated, textural, and moderately masculine with a contemporary color palette of moody blues and charcoals.
- Full renovation of the master suite
- Styled furniture & materials in the living room, master bedroom, guest bath, and guest room
That view, though.
“Gin and sin”–it’s a bachelor pad, alright!
Spiky plant in a concrete ball planter
Natural light for days
We calmly resisted the urge to curl up on this sumptuous rug to make sure it’s fit for napping
We added built-ins to accentuate those dreamy high ceilings. We typically style with stacks and/or groups of 3 (with books, vessels, and objects that speak to the owner’s history and interests).
Plenty of texure and layered books that reflect the homeower’s personality
Semi-sheer linen curtains keep it light and draw the eye to the full height of the view
Caitlin models a clapboard panel in the master bedroom
Dreamland. The simple but impactful clapboard treatment (we used Strikwood) gives the bedroom personality and rustic charm.
- Change out the green marble & reface the fireplace – gray soapstone on the hearth? Carrara herringbone on the surround!? Sounds like a good Fall in New England project to us!
- Artwork above the sofa: a large scale Cap Cod waterscape photograph taken by the owner. We’re having it printed on metal and it’s going to look so great in that room.
- Kitchen renovation?
