The elegance of this modern kitchen is highlighted by the sculptural range hood, marble backsplash and waterfall countertops. These elegant features help to accentuate the beautiful views of the Boston cityscape that spreads out beneath the condo.
The homeowners wanted an open concept space that would be functional for entertaining, so designers combined the couple's living areas to create one large entertainment space. With windows surrounding the home, the cityscape is visible from each area. The couple's postmodern art collection is also sprinkled throughout the spaces so that the couple and their guests can admire them no matter which area in which they choose to sit.
The homeowners wanted the master bedroom to be their own personal oasis, so designers took their time, creating a space full of lush, neutral fabrics and furniture and adding fun pops of color to reflect the couple's personality. Several vignettes provide comfortable seating in the space, giving the homeowners places to take in their beautiful cityscape. Throughout the space, colorful, blown glass sculptures show off the couple's style and give them the personal touch they desired for their master space.
Connected to the home's main living spaces, a dining room takes advantage of the natural light beaming in to make the space feel open and more spacious. The massive windows also allow diners to take in the beautiful views of the city.
The soaking tub in this master en suite can either be concealed or left open. When left open, the Boston Commons can be seen from below; however, the barn door can also provide privacy, shielding the space from the rest of the master suite.
Designers maximized the stylishness of this space by using green technology and the home's infrastructure to conceal some of the home's less attractive features. To bring the fireplace into the space, designers used an eco-smart, ethanol fireplace that requires no venting or special accommodations, giving the home the warmth and elegance of a fireplace without needing to vent it to the outside. Then, HVAC ducts were hidden behind the faux chimney and plasma TV.
To take full advantage of the view from the homeowners' apartment, designers installed a pergola to help block the sun and give the space a bit of dramatic effect. Then, two outdoor lounge chairs were brought into the space to provide seating. Last, two abstract statues were added to complete the space and connect its design to that of the home's interior.
For these homeowners, designers created an open concept space to showcase the couple's collection of postmodern art. No matter where in the main spaces of the home the couple or their guests sit, they are able to view several pieces from the collection at a time.
