Inside The Space: A Focus on Functionality.

Elizabeth Tobin

  For this project, we found ourselves in one of Boston's oldest neighborhoods, The North End. Everything from our initial onsite visit to our final install proved to put spacing and placement to the test to keep the historic charm of the home while transitioning the out-dated fixtures into a high-end renovation. With four floors and tight corners, this single family home in the heart of the North End had roughly 400 sq ft. on each floor. Functionality had to be our full focus.

  The obstacle of limited space actually became a guiding light when choosing local vendors who contributed pieces that served this concept perfectly. A few of these space saving areas we installed were the dining room table, made to seat 4-8 people, a built-in entertainment shelving unit built around a clipped corner for extra storage, and an upholstered bench that offered additional seating for entertaining. 

  Storage, storage, storage. From open shelving units in the Living Room and Dining Room, to gorgeous wood dressers in the Master Bedroom. It's style yes, but space that makes a project complete from the inside out. Take a stroll through the updated home in the gallery below and be sure to comment with any questions on how to get this look!
