I'm pleased to announce that Cocoon Home Design's Beacon Hill project is almost finished. Earlier this month, I spent a few days in Boston stylizing and adding the final touches. After a year of total renovation, as in taking down walls to the studs, raising ceilings and replacing floors, my clients and I have been in full on decorating mode. With just the dinning room remaining to be furnished, the rest of the home has taken on an elegantly modern look with classic details that pay homage to its New England history. Take a look:
About this time last week I was in Boston working with my #beachonhillchd clients. I shopped and selected rugs, accessories, and even plants, for their newly renovated space. With the addition of the textiles and botanicals the rooms took on a 'homier' look and feel. Surprisingly, the color orange became the accent color in the main living areas allowing for ottomans and pillows to be interchangeable between the different spaces. In the kitchen we emphasized the cabinetry color, Farrow & Ball's Railings, with a dark rug and oversized vintage botanical prints. Brass hardware and a lighting fixture lent a classic look to this space. For the first time ever, I got to see the Modo Chandelier in its destined spot: smack dab in the middle of my clients' huge living room window. I love it there and I'm happy to say my clients do too. All of the lighting we selected for this Beacon Hill residence is spectacular and there's more to come!
I'll be venturing back in the warmer months to tackle the dinning room area and to add some final details to the living room. Many thanks to AK and BD for allowing me the opportunity to work on your home. It's been,and continues to be, a great experience!
Yesterday, I had the chance to visit the 2013 San Francisco Decorator Showcase home which was just breathtaking. While each room was unique in its composition, details of texture, pattern and color were fluidly played out in each individual space. The combinations of patterns in wall coverings, textiles and tiles gave each room its own textural depth, making the tour not only a visual experience but a sensory one as well. Take a look at several of my favorite images which highlight the mix of materials that made this year's Showcase Home a standout.
Many thanks to CC for hosting an unforgettable afternoon.
Last week we took a main living area tour of this unique Boston loft. Today, we'll take a look at the master bedroom which is just as elegant with plentiful touches of glamorous comfort. Take a look at how style, texture and color create an amazingly stylish yet cozy bedroom:
Once again, many thanks to MP for sharing her beautiful home with our readers.
Bold art, colorful textiles and a myriad of eclectic personal touches create a home that is uniquely elegant, modern and chic. A renovated kitchen by Kochman Reidt and Haigh and a 3D mural by Caroline Dechamby are some of the recent additions to a collection of furnishings and accessories that have traveled with the owner through several continents and many homes. Today I'll share with you this Boston loft's main living area and next week we'll look at the master bedroom, appointed with modern comforts and touches of classic glamour much like the rest of this amazing space.
Thank you MP for sharing your beautiful home with our Cocoon Home blog readers.
