Dark hardwood floors ground the entry and hallway. To create visual interest, the hardwood is laid in a herringbone pattern that changes to straight lines down the hall. Textured gray carpeting lines the staircase, while a chic light fixture adds a contemporary note.
Plaid settees bring country charm to the sleek wood-and-glass dining table, while an abstract chandelier adds a contemporary note. Built-in cabinets provide much-needed storage for dishes, glassware and entertaining pieces.
The wine room of this five-story Boston brownstone is full of the homeowners' collection. Traditional coffered ceiling brings architectural interest to the space, which is grounded by tiled floor. A simple table with industrial-style chairs is the perfect spot to sample favorite wines. Photography by Andy Caulfield
Glossy woods fill this masculine home office in the Boston brownstone. An Ikat area rug grounds the seating area in front of the wood and stone fireplace. Built-in cabinets provide tons of storage and wrap around the room into the bay window. A sleek desk has views of Boston beyond.
