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.
To create a larger, more open feeling to this master bathroom, designers took full advantage of the large window, positioning the bed in front of the window, creating a focal point. To help the homeowners control the natural light let into their space, designers hung curtains to act as a diffuser. Comfort was added to the space with a soft, velvet rug and a fuzzy blanket and pillows, while the unique artwork adds texture.
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.
In the living room, a large sectional provides the space with plenty of seating, while the wood burning fireplace adds warmth. To bring texture to the design, a stone focal wall and fireplace surround. On the floor a rug adds comfort to the space and artwork adds personality.
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.
The modern design streamlines the home, and the openness of it allows the features' clean lines to draw the eye across the home's living spaces and through the windows overlooking the city and its magnificent views.
